Free Webcast On How To Use Materials Science Principles To Reduce Pharmaceutical Formulation Risks

NEW YORK, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pharmaceutical excipients were once called "inert" ingredients. That was before scientists understood how they can react with active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and other ingredients of drug tablets and capsules. A failure to understand potential reactions can result in variable product quality and even adverse reactions in patients who must take these medications.

Protecting patients and reducing the risk of pharmaceutical formulation requires a clear understanding of ingredient interactions, at the molecular level. The materials science principles behind each constituent ingredient and its potential interactions with others must be controlled.

On Thursday, April 11, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. ET, Paul Trusty, a materials science PhD and technical director of solid dosage forms at GSK, will discuss these issues and offer best-practices for reducing the risk of pharmaceutical formulations, in a free webcast sponsored by PharmaEvolution.com.

The one-hour program will focus on developing a "microstructure property approach," to review key risks and how they can be controlled at the particulate level. It will also examine excipient functionality and discuss modern visualization and analytical techniques that can be used to better understand material structure at a microscopic level. 

Mr. Trusty will also discuss how to optimize release rate and uptake by understanding how each constituent ingredient contributes to tablet breakup. In addition, he will show how to apply pharmaceutical quality by design (QbD) approaches to formulation, and better understand the relationships among structure, property and performance.

Mr. Trusty is responsible for global tech support at GSK, from new product development to scaleup, tech transfer, CMC registration, and product launch. 

The webcast is sponsored by PharmaEvolution.com ( www.pharmaevolution.com), a new online community for professionals who work in pharmaceutical research and development, manufacturing, supply chain management, and quality. The site is published by UBM DeusM and CPhI worldwide.
