Patheon offers controlled-release technologies in a multitude of dose forms, including tablets and softgels, to allow customers to cater to their target market and to expand the possible applications of a drug.
Two poster presentations will be given by Abhijit Gokhale, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, Formulation and Process Development, Patheon Inc., on Monday, July 22 and Tuesday, July 23. The presentations will cover extrusion spheronization technique for controlled release of pharmaceutical drugs and formulation development of poorly stable and poorly permeable drugs.
