Event Overview:
This session of PharmaTalks focuses on the challenges of medication adherence in children and patients with swallowing disorders (dysphasia). The session will discuss the industry trends associated with these challenges, the mechanism of swallowing, as well as the current solutions and associated gaps addressing these challenges.  The final part of the session will discuss a novel, patient-centric oral solution, leveraging unique taste-masking capabilities combined with the ParvuletTM technology.  ParvuletTM enables a solid powder or tablet to convert to a semi-solid in the presence of water within 30 seconds. The final dosage is easily administered as a soft food-like texture ideal for pediatric and geriatric populations (including those with dysphagia).

Key Learning Objectives

  • Understand the current challenges with pediatric and dysphagic patients associated with medication compliance

  • Explore the details and mechanisms associated with swallowing 

  • Learn about the gaps with current oral solutions for pediatrics and dysphagic patients and how taste masking, combined with the Parvulet technology, provides a novel patient-centric solution.
