Performance of gelatin capsules and the next generation of HPMC capsules - Vcaps® Plus

December 10, 2015

Though HPMC capsules are used in marketed drugs, there are few comparisons of the in vivo performance between gelatin and HPMC available in literature. In this webinar, we present the results of in vitro dissolution and an in vivo bioequivalence study comparing the performance of the identical formulation of three different drugs in Vcaps® Plus capsules to HGC. In addition, the circumstances under which the same API and formulation contained in HG and Vcaps® Plus can be expected to provide equivalent performance will be discussed.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Characteristics of the next generation of HPMC capsules
  • The in vitro and in vivo performance comparison of HGC vs. HPMC for several drugs
  • Mechanistic situations that can influence relative performance of HCG vs. HPMC for specific delivery applications
