Lipid Delivery Systems
An overview with respect to the rationale for selection and design of lipophilic delivery systems. Including considerations for in vitro methods and techniques to characterise lipid based formulations.
Case study: lipid strategies that have been used in pre-clinical studies to maximise API exposure.
Formulation options and analytical challenges associated with oral delivery of lipidic dosage forms for first in human studies.
Understanding the potential and limitations for lipid formulations, subject to requirements of the target product profile (TPP) and physicochemical properties of the API.
Case study: Practical considerations and time-lines associated with a typical Phase I drug product development programme.
Paediatric Product Development
Scientific and regulatory overview, including paediatric investigation plan (PIP) & paediatric-use marketing authorisation (PUMA).
PK/PD considerations compared to adults.
Dosage form selection considerations for neonates to adolescents, Excipient & Tox considerations.
Basics for Pre-formulation – Physiochemical characteristics of API and influence on dosage form design.
Setting a TPP.
Formulation route selection – solids, liquids, powders for reconstitution.
Taste masking, antioxidants, osmolality, product specs.
Analytics – Chromatographic considerations for preservatives, specificity, antioxidants, batch to batch consistency.
Overview – Definitions, Growth over last decade, Clinical progress, Mechanisms of action
Understanding the drug substance – Fecal Microbiota for Transplantation (FMT), Strains, Consortia, Phages, New modalities
Drug substance development process – Isolation, fermentation, purification, drying. Characterisations methods, specifications. Development risks and challenges.
Drug product development process – TPP, preformulation, robustness, technology selection for target delivery, capsule filling, tabletting, characterisation methods, specifications, packaging.
At the end of these three sessions the participants will have an intensive overview and an understanding of:
Professor Mike Rubinstein, BPharm, PhD, MIChemE, CEng, MRPharmS, QP

Ryan Wilson MSc
Head of Live Bio-therapeutic Program
Ryan Joined Quay Pharma as Strategic Projects Manager in Sept 2014 and in Jan 2016 moved on to lead our Live Biotherapeutic Program. Prior to joining Quay, Ryan was Head of Program Management at Oxyrane for 6 years and before that he worked for SSL International for 13 years as Innovation Manager and 5 years as Project Manager
Ryan has headed development of a number of phages and at least 50 strains of living organisms both as single strains and consortia consisting of BSL class 1 & 2; most being moisture sensitive anaerobes, therefore requiring careful handling and processing. He has developed products for Phase I to III dealing with only Pharma-grade LBTs. Further to the above, since Quay doesn’t possess an IP we don’t have an interest in shoehorning our clients’ projects into a patented delivery system of our own.
Ryan holds an MSc from The University of Manchester in Pharmaceutical technology and an MSc in Project Management from Leeds Metropolitan University.
Tom Pointon, BSc, PhD
Microbiology Technical Expert
Tom supports the microbiological technical and hygiene needs across the business. He has worked a range of microbiology roles within FMCG, pharmaceutical and clinical industries including leading Unilever’s home and personal care preservation and applied microbiology programme and managing Source Bioscience’s serology department.
