Here, Eunice Costa, PhD, Scientist, Drug Product Development; Filipe Neves, PhD, Senior Scientist, Group Leader, Drug Product Development; Gonçalo Andrade, PhD, Business Development Manager; and Conrad Winters, PhD, Director, Drug Product Development, all of Hovione, describe the strong position of inhalable products in preclinical and clinical pipelines and make the case for formulation-based approaches to enable and enhance pulmonary product development.
Spray-drying technology in particular is highlighted as a highly favourable, scalable manufacturing technique for inhalable composite particles.
