Strategies to Develop Lipid-Based Drug Delivery Systems and Oral Dosage Forms

Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Thursday, October 17, 2019

Liquid-filled capsules (LFC) are the primary delivery platform for oral delivery of lipid formulations which includes both soft elastic capsules and liquid filled hard capsules. Liquid-in-bottle is another avenue for delivering lipid formulations. Proper deployment of these technologies can provide formulators with effective delivery platforms during early-phase development and commercial products.

Join industry experts for a discussion on strategies to develop lipid-based drug delivery systems (LBDDS) for oral delivery. The experts will present the fundamental principles, advantages and disadvantages of different dose forms for LBDDS and share considerations for selecting a suitable dose form for early phase development programs through commercialization.
