During the onset of any clinical trial there are many factors and variables to consider. Funding, time restraints, and regulatory agency guidelines are factors that often influence which variables will be studied, leaving other important information out of the study. Preformulation in Solid Dosage Form Development covers every topic of critical importance to the preformulation stages of drug development. Serving as a handbook or stand-alone reference, this text equips those in academia and the pharmaceutical industry with both basic and applied principles for the characterization of drugs, excipients, and products, and deals with the issues relating to predictability, identification, and product development during preformulation stages through Phase I of clinical trials.

With contributions from an international panel of experts in the field, this guide:

  • outlines an updated preformulation program for modern drug development issues that includes particle morphology, characterization, thermal analysis, and solubility methods
  • contains rational designs for the structure of formulation studies
  • covers the importance of preformulation design using artificial neural networks and computational prediction techniques, and examines the concepts of preliminary-preformulation
  • discusses the typical drug-excipient interactions that could occur during the course of development and methods of characterization
  • includes novel methods to determine the physical and chemical stability of new formulations
  • reviews the structure, content, and format of the preformulation report
  • examines the significance of drug substance physiochemical properties, in regulatory quality by design

Despre autor (2008)

MOJI CHRISTIANAH ADEYEYE is currently a Professor of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology, a Fulbright Scholar, and a member of the graduate faculty at the School of Pharmacy, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She graduated from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and the University of Georgia, Athens, where she earned her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. respectively. Her research interests include, preformulation, drug/excipient characterization, delivery systems with a focus on bioavailability and bioequivalence of solid, semi-solid and liquid dosage forms (conventional, modified release). She has worked extensively on nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids and excipients such as cyclodextrins, microcrystalline cellulose and silicified microcrystalline cellulose. She has published over 40 manuscripts and two patents and given over 100 scientific presentations. She was the past President of the Nigerian American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (NAAPS) and former Chair of the AAPS Preformulation Focus Group. She is the Founder and President of a non-profit organization—Drugs for AIDS and HIV Patients (DAHP) whose focus is to care and provide treatment for HIV/AIDS orphans and widows. She is a member of AAPS, APHA, CRS, AACP, AAUP and Christian Connections for International Health.
