From FIH to POC

How do I quickly develop FIH dosage forms and bridge to drug products for POC?

Drug Delivery & Formulation Summit 2019

This presentation, delivered by Nikki Whitfield VP, CDMO Services, at the Drug Delivery & Formulation Summit 2019 (DDF) in Berlin, explains how to quickly develop first-in-human (FIH) dosage forms and bridge to drug products for proof-of-concept (POC).

Watch the presentation and learn about:

  • Choosing the appropriate dosage form for first-in-human/Phase I trials
  • Compounding or GMP manufacturing – how to balance cost, time and dose flexibility
  • Challenges with poorly soluble molecules in early development – what technologies can we deploy?
  • Bridging to robust and scalable Phase II drug products – how to avoid losing time in development?
  • Highly flexible and adaptive clinical manufacturing strategies for patient trials – how can real-time manufacturing be used?
