Event Overview:

This webinar will address the most relevant solutions for dry powder inhaler (DPI) development covering both formulation and device development, as well as process optimization and analytical characterization, under an integrated development approach. DPIs are the dosage form of choice for delivering high payloads of inhaled drugs and achieving maximum delivery efficiency to patients. This presentation will focus on new formulation platforms, aiming to address the pharmacokinetics requirements of the target drug and indication, coupled with a new device platform, the Sunriser® DPI. This integrated approach is designed to maximize drug delivery efficiency while maintaining safety, being able to address a diversified array of diseases.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Gain insights on novel formulation development strategies for DPIs, to be able to improve drug delivery efficiency even at high drug loads;
  • Understand the potential of wet milling and dry milling capabilities for boosting the fine particle dose of DPI formulations;
  • Discover analytical characterization techniques, for differentiated formulations, to further understand product properties that impact drug delivery and aerodynamic performance;
  • Understand features associated with a novel high efficiency device platform, the Sunriser® capsule-based Dry Powder Inhaler;
  • Network with industry peers and experts during the live Q&A session.
