Book Description

This definitive reference explores the various aspects of multiparticulate dosage form development-assessing the in vivo behavior and performance of multiparticulates as well as comparing their market position to other dosage forms.
Discussing-for the first time in a comprehensive manner-alternative pelletization techniques such as balling (spherical agglomeration), spray congealing, and cryopelletization, Multiparticulate Oral Drug Delivery

  • describes formulation and processing variables that affect the formation, integrity, and performance of coatings derived from molten materials and polymeric solutions and dispersions
  • analyzes the biopharmaceutical aspects and in vivo performance of multiparticulate drug delivery systems
  • details the idiosyncrasies of the manufacturing process of hard-shell gelatin capsules
  • explains the different kinds of packaging materials and machinery and the importance of packaging during the development phase and beyond
  • previews the marketing considerations of multiparticulate systems in the years to come
  • presents practical solutions to problems encountered in the area of film-coating processes
  • and more!
