A Guide to Drug Development of Challenging Molecules

Starting with an overview of beyond rule of five (bRo5) drugs and the key challenges behind these drugs, in this webinar, experts will discuss how intracellular concentrations of drugs is influenced by drug-transporting proteins and metabolizing enzymes and how they are involved in delivering effective drug as well as determining toxicity and drug interactions.

The speakers will then explain the importance of molecule developability assessment, discuss the various preformulation characterization requirements associated with early drug development, and examine the types of formulation technologies that can successfully overcome bioavailability challenges. Case studies will be presented to demonstrate how PBPK modeling can help understanding of API properties and be used as a tool to decide on formulation strategies.
