Quotient Sciences’ focus is on delivering the most appropriate formulations to expedite your clinical program, through dosing within our own Phase I clinical facilities or at an external site. We work with you to support rapid progression to your first-in-human evaluation where required, ensuring that your ultimate drug product presentation goals can be seamlessly transitioned following confirmation of molecule safety and tolerability. Our formulators’ experience is built on years of work integrating formulation development and clinical evaluation. As a result, our development is based on an understanding of the intended indication including drug products designed for chronic dosing or for pediatric populations.
Our breadth of formulations developed for first-in-human studies includes:
- APIs in a bottle or capsule
- Solubility-enhanced dosage forms
First-in-Human to Proof-of-Concept
Our Translational Pharmaceutics approach enables First-in-Human studies by re-engineering the transition of your drug molecule into clinical development and shortening the timeline to Proof-of-Concept.
MEI Pharma has leveraged Quotient's Translational Pharmaceutics® platform to expedite development of its next-generation cancer therapy ME-401.
AAPS 2020 Poster - Flexible formulation assessments in FIH studies for poorly soluble drugs accelerates dosage form development, manufacturing and supply for patient POC trials
Here we describe how the integration of formulation development, compounding and GMP manufacturing activities within the FIH to POC program can streamline development and maximize potential for clinical success.
AAPS 2020 Poster - Development of High Drug Load Multiparticulate Beads Using an Extrusion-Spheronization Process
During high shear wet massing, changes in impellor torque occur as a result of changes in cohesive forces in the wet powder bed, and can be used to assess end points. However, for these formulations the change in torque was not sensitive enough for end point identification. Optimal end point for extrusion-spheronization reached just before the traditional wet granulation end point.
