The Impact of Predictive Modeling on Bioavailability: A Standardized Approach

Predicting bioavailability is pivotal in drug development, directly influencing a drug’s effectiveness within the body. A key factor in this process is solubility, which enables the drug to be absorbed and distributed. However, a major challenge we face is the increasing complexity of drugs. A Historical Perspective Historically, achieving sufficient bioavailability was straightforward for molecules,

The Power of In Silico Polymer Screening for Drug Formulation

Picture polymers in drug formulation as the coating of a chocolate praline. They create a matrix for the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), similar to how a praline’s outer shell encases its delicious center. This polymer « coating » does more than just bind the ingredients; it precisely regulates the release of the API, much like the controlled

Beyond the Pill: The Essential Role of Solvents in Pharmaceutical Formulation

Solvents play a central but often invisible role in drug formulation. Although it might appear that solvents are irrelevant in the final product, as a tablet contains no solvents, there are several stages on the way to a final tablet where solvents are not only useful, but inevitably necessary. From Drug Synthesis to Tablet Production:
