The assay of a pharmaceutical dosage form is only a part of the demonstration of its ability to deliver the drug substance to the patient. A drug product that does not release the drug substance is of the same value as a drug product that does not contain the drug substance at all! Dissolution testing was introduced officially almost 40 years ago and, for the majority of dosage forms requiring such testing little has changed in the mechanics of the test. However the understanding and interpretation of such testing has remained an area of much dispute with considerable over interpretation of the results both by the industry and the regulatory authorities.

Benefits to the Participants

The course looks at the history of the dissolution test in order to understand how we have arrived at today’s situation. It will review the test methods, both official and unofficial and discuss the development and validation of dissolution tests.
Although the main emphasis of the course will concern solid dosage forms, both instant and modified release, there will be consideration of other forms requiring some form of release testing.
The course is designed to bring together aspects of the subject both from the analytical and the formulation development areas and will be illustrated with practical tips and examples.
Attention will be given to the regulatory aspects of dissolution particularly as related to regulatory submissions.
