About the Presentation
Two general aspects of drug tablet and capsule performance are (a) drug release/dissolution and (b) drug intestinal permeation. In this presentation, recent efforts to characterize a hollow fiber membrane module as part of a dissolution-permeation system was described, with an emphasis of biopharmaceutic risk assessment (1,2). The lecture also discussed potential utility of a dissolution-permeation system to better understand low solubility drugs and enabled formulations (e.g. amorphous solid dispersions), including where dissolution and permeation were dynamically linked in vivo, such that (b) drug intestinal permeation was required to allow for (a) additional drug dissolution.
