Catalent Expert to Present on Enhancing Bioavailability of Poorly Absorbed Drugs at Japan Society of Drug Delivery Systems

Somerset, NJ (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

Catalent Pharma Solutions, the global leader in drug development solutions and advanced delivery technologies for pharmaceutical, biologic, and consumer health products, today announced that Dr. Jeff Browne, R&D Director and US Platform Leader of Pharmaceutical Softgels, will present “Enhancing the Bioavailability of Absorption-Limited Drugs with Lipid-Based Formulations using Soft Capsule Delivery Systems” at the forthcoming 30th Annual Meeting of the Japan Society of Drug Delivery Systems (30-31 July 2014, Tokyo, Japan).

Dr. Browne’s presentation, which is a luncheon seminar on Wednesday July 30th, at 12.00 noon, will provide insight into the usefulness of lipid-based formulations to enhance absorption for drugs with limited oral bioavailability, characterized by poor solubility and/or permeability. The process of preformulation studies and prototype formulation development on a placebo lipid-based formulation will be used to demonstrate the considerations necessary before highlighting the benefits of soft capsules as a delivery method for such formulations. Catalent’s non-gelatin OptiShell™ capsule technology has successfully been used to overcome incompatibilities with gelatin-based shells, and more recently, the use of film-coated soft capsules has been investigated.

Dr. Browne’s career with Catalent started in 1994 and since then, he has held a number of positions before becoming R&D Director and US Platform Leader of Pharma Softgels. These included Executive Director & Division Head of Pharmaceutical Development in Research Triangle Park, NC, and most recently Technical Director, Pharmaceutical Softgels. He is an active member of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) and has served on several of their Focus Group committees. He is a frequent presenter at both regional and national AAPS meetings. Dr. Browne received his Ph.D. from Purdue University in Industrial and Physical Pharmacy.
