Advancing Lipid-Based Formulations and Softgels in Drug Development
Summary: Softgel capsules offer a versatile and cost-effective solution to the challenges faced throughout the drug product lifecycle. By carefully selecting fill formulations during the early stages of development, softgel can successfully meet the specific requirements for bioavailability and stability for clinical trial and supply. Softgels also provide patients with benefits such as convenient dosing and controlled release mechanisms, resulting in improved patient compliance. In addition, the softgel manufacturing process has been optimized for low batch sizes using commercial encapsulation equipment, allowing for seamless scalability and eliminating scaling issues or commercial capacity constraints. This webinar explores formulation and manufacturing strategies, enriched by case studies on lipid-based drug delivery systems and softgels.
