Pharmaceutical companies and contract development and research organizations oftentimes select a product’s final oral dosage form according to the equipment and qualified personnel available within their R&D and production sites, especially those with a history of positive performance.
However, in order to adequately decide on the best solid oral dosage form, other very important variables influence the value, acceptance, and overall success of a pharmaceutical drug product. When considering hard capsules versus the more common coated or uncoated tablet, aspects to be considered include versatility, R&D timelines, the number of starting materials used, the complexity of the manufacturing process, as well as patient perception and preference.
At this dinner event, these key considerations of hard capsule characteristics and activities from product development through to commercial manufacture will be highlighted and discussed, in order to enhance the decision-making process regarding solid oral drug delivery.
