Inhalation Drugs in Capsule based Inhaler Systems: Optimizing DPI capsules on Formulation-Capsule-Device Interactions

November 19, 2014

Dry Powder Inhalation (DPI) is a leading drug delivery technology for the treatment of respiratory diseases, and increasingly for systemic drug delivery. Optimizing a DPI capsule is not an easy task; understanding the relationship between the device, formulation and capsule is key to improve drug performances. 

Four industry experts will provide insight into state-of-the-art technologies for inhalation drug development:

  • Capsugel will share the unique know-how gained from more than 20 years of experience in specialized inhalation capsules.
  • Bend Research, a division of Capsugel Dosage Form Solutions, will discuss expertise in formulation and particle engineering with spray drying technology.
  • Aptar, a key player in capsule-based expedients, will describe how the capsule-based devices are a simple and cost-effective way to deliver medication via the pulmonary route, and why these types of devices are the future of inhalation technology.
