From Calculations to Operations

Formulation chemists put a great deal of ingenuity into pharmaceutical products, yet despite this, drug product formulations today are often less stable than their predecessors, and longevity can be compromised. Packaging conditions are an important factor in ensuring the safety and potency of a product throughout its shelf life. However, performing tests to identify the ideal packaging requirements can be a complex process. Without a strategic approach to drug packaging and testing, there can be delays in the development time before a new product can be brought to market.

Fortunately, there are proven, streamlined techniques to predict how a particular drug will fare in a given packaging environment. While stability testing will ultimately determine whether the drug product formulation and packaging development decisions were made correctly, pseudo-empirical modelling of established drug product formulations, with desired packaging presentations, can help drug makers to determine quickly the means by which they can maintain a drug’s chemical and physical characteristics over time. This article examines the role of pseudo-empirical modelling in advance of stability testing of solid-state pharmaceutical degradation and sorbent technology in drug packaging.
