New Strategies for Optimizing Biologic Formulations

Overcoming the challenges to inhaled biologic development

Inhaled biologics present a highly attractive route for the administration of biologic therapeutics as they allow systemic and targeted delivery to the lung, particularly beneficial for the treatment of respiratory diseases, whilst avoiding gastrointestinal degradation. They encourage patient adherence as they are more convenient to use as compared to other routes of administration and it is forecasted that this product class will continue to increase in importance in the pharmaceutical market. In this presentation, which was delivered at the Inhalation and Respiratory Drug Products Conference, Chris Vernall, Business Development Director, Intertek Melbourn, discusses the challenges to overcome during the development of inhaled or nasal delivered biologic including formulation, characterization of the biologics, stability and performance testing of the drug product.
