Manufacturing Amorphous Solid Dispersions for Continuous Direct Compression: Streamlining End-to-End Formulation and Process Development


This presentation will provide an end-to-end overview of an amorphous solid dispersion (ASD) development approach focusing not only on selecting the best excipients (including alternative excipients to broaden the formulation landscape) but also how to convert it into a commercially viable process as a final oral dosage form by Continuous Direct Compression. Using a streamlined approach and proprietary technologies, an overview of how to expedite the screening phase and process development with minimal API requirements will be given. This not only shortens the time to Phase I/IND by accelerating formulation and process development but also improves supply chain flexibility and opens new possibilities for Lifecycle Management. To deliver a successful ASD-based oral dosage form by Continuous Direct Compression, the following aspects must be considered: 1) high-throughput screening, 2) digital twins and scale-up models, and 3) integrated ASD and tablet formulation / process development. Hovione case studies on enabling Continuous Direct Compression of ASDs will be discussed.

Key learnings:

  • Unleashing full potential of ASDs requires integrated optimization of formulations and processes, leveraging integrated high throughput formulation platforms (ASD-HIPROS) to reduce time to Phase I/IND.
  • Engineered Spray Dried powders are amenable to Continuous Direct Compression, which greatly simplifies drug product process trains and improves supply chain flexibility / Lifecycle Management options.


Schedule a meeting with our experts and learn how we can maximize the potential of your ASD development and streamline your drug product processes.
