Event Summary:
Drug delivery is a complex task. Poorly soluble compounds represent an estimated 60% of compounds in development and many major marketed drugs. Solubility issues complicating the delivery of new drugs also affect the delivery of many existing drugs.
Experts from leading Pharma & Biotech companies will present, discuss and examine the different types of drug delivery systems and provide you with the insight into emerging or advanced drug delivery approaches that they use.
Uncover best practice strategies to enhance drug solubility and permeability and network with about 60 decision makers from companies representing the drug delivery field of nowadays, as the ability to deliver poorly soluble drugs grows and will grow in significance in the coming years.
