Improving Solubility 2010


Published on

"Poorly soluble compounds represent about 60% of drugs in market and this number continues to increase. IQPC's 4th Annual Improving Solubility conference will provide you with new techniques to measure, predict and improve solubility. This can help turn your biggest challenge into your main success factor and competitive advantage!

Topics include: • Applying lipid based forumlations to address bioavailability issues • Overcoming physical instability • Using both solubility and permeability for predicting absorption • Highlighting new drug delivery technologies for improving bioavailability of poorly soluble drugs • Uncovering parenteral formulation of poorly water soluble drugs • Identifying the relationship between in-vitro data and how this would influence absorption • Discovering the right formulation for toxicology studies for poorly soluble compounds
