Capsule Based Dry Powder Inhalation: A Holistic Approach for Effective Pulmonary Drug Delivery
Sponsored by: ACG Worldwide
Date: 4 October
Time: 3PM London/4PM CET
ACG’s comprehensive solution for DPI
Inhalation delivery has gained wide acceptance as an effective non-invasive method for local and systemic therapeutic delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). This is due to the unique features of the lungs displaying a large surface area, thin alveolar capillary membrane, low enzymatic activity and avoidance of first pass metabolism.
One of the most used platforms in this technology are capsule based dry powder inhalation (cDPI). This webinar explains from a scientific standpoint why they are interesting within the pharmaceutical community.
The webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of the benefits of capsules in DPIs. It will consider various aspects of cDPI and deliver a state of the art review of the technology and solution available from ACG. It will showcase how ACG’s holistic approach to DPIs as a delivery system enables customers to take advantage of our science and engineering capabilities.
