A large and increasing fraction of orally administered small molecules in pharma company pipelines have poor oral absorption due to low aqueous solubility or dissolution rate. To address this trend, evaluating formulation approaches for increasing oral bioavailability are becoming routine early on in formulation development programs. Selecting the appropriate technology for your compound requires careful consideration of the compound physicochemical properties, target dose and pharmacokinetic profile, as well as overall market image. Understanding the root cause for poor exposure driven by the key barriers to absorption for a given compound can drastically reduce the time and effort spent on selecting and progressing multiple technologies.
Register for this webinar to learn about a general overview of some of the most common bioavailability-enhancing technologies for poorly soluble compounds and a strategic framework for identifying and selecting the appropriate technology. A case study demonstrating the approach will be presented for a poorly soluble BCS Class II compound.
