Topical drug developers are increasingly seeking novel or different dosage forms for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to:

  • Extension of API patent life
  • Identification of improved and/or safer drug delivery routes
  • Protection and stabilization of sensitive or reactive APIs
  • Increased solubilization of insoluble APIs
  • Improvement of sensory properties, applicability and patient acceptance.

In the topical drug market there are a wide variety of dosage forms available to the product developer including, creams, lotions, ointments, gels, sprays, foams, pastes and many others. Once the dosage form and design criteria have been decided, the product developer must determine the appropriate combination of compendial grade excipients based on their function and performance in the formulation. This presentation will discuss essential considerations during the excipient selection and product design process.
