Conquering the Taste-Masking Challenge with New Technologies

July 06, 2016

Designing oral drugs for specialized populations, especially pediatrics and the elderly requires innovative approaches to ensure effective treatment. Both swallowability and palatability (especially taste) can heavily impact patient compliance.

Multiparticulate (MP) formulations have proven to be effective approaches in addressing these issues for infants through the institutionalized elderly, while meeting target product profiles and guarding against dose dumping concerns. Specialized capsules can augment the high degree of administration flexibility provided by MP formulations for dosing directly in the mouth, mixing with food, or easy swallowing.  

Key Learning Objectives:

  • The new technologies designed to optimize taste-masking and delivery
  • The science behind specific multiparticulate formulation technologies
  • Case studies on the development and use of specific multiparticulate formulation technologies
  • Understand features and benefits of easy-to-open Coni-Snap® Sprinkle Capsules
