Innovative Dosage Forms in Pharmaceutical Development and Production

Beside current trends and future developments in the R&D and technology area in the pharmaceutical industry this seminar course focuses on innovative technologies like the application of nanoparticulate systems or formulations containing Hot Melt Extrudates during the development and production of pharmaceutcial drugs. During the course theselection of suitable design of experiments (DoE) in the lab and production scale under consideration of the process efficacy are discussed for immediate, delayed and sustained release formulations for oral application. The use of the correct polymers for a target release profile will be specifically discussed. Finally, several case studies from the industrial praxis will give a good overview of the advantages of these innovative technologies compared to the conventional techniques especially for limited soluble compounds.
