Developing Drug Formulations and Conducting Clinical Trials

Table of Contents What Is Drug Formulation? Why Is Drug Formulation Development Important? What Should Be Considered While Developing a Formulation? How Many Drug Dose Types Are There? What Are Early-Phase Formulation Challenges? Why Should Biotechs Outsource Drug Formulation? Biotech companies making new drugs to be tested in first-in-human (FIH) clinical trials face a big problem with how to make the drugs. Formulation development is important in the early stages of drug development, and for how well a promising investigational medicinal product will do on the market in the future. What Is Drug Formulation? Drug formulation, also called “pharmaceutical” formulation, combines different substances with the drug's active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) to make a drug product that can be given to patients safely. Why Is Drug Formulation Development Important? Formulation development is very important because it involves ensuring a drug is prepared and taken in a safe and good way for the patient.  In 2018, a survey was done to determine…

A Quick Guide for Biotech Companies on Drug Formulation Development and Clinical Trials

Table of Contents What is Drug Formulation? What is the Importance of Drug Formulation Development? How Should Formulation Development Begin? What are the Exact Dose Types of Drugs Available for Purchase? Why are Later Stage Clinical Trials Important When Starting a Drug Development Program? Pharmaceutical formulation is a significant obstacle for biotech businesses creating novel medications for first-in-human (FIH) clinical trials. Formulation development is crucial in the early phases of drug development and for the eventual commercial viability of a promising investigational medical product. This article gives a practical introduction to drug formulation development features —within the context of early-phase clinical trials— to aid biotechnology businesses in this crucial phase of the drug development process. What is Drug Formulation? Drug formulation, also known as a pharmaceutical formulation, is the process by which a number of components are mixed with a pharmacological's active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) to generate a drug product that may be administered to patients safely. What is the…
