Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) July 21, 2012
Pharma IQ, a division of IQPC, announces the Protein Formulation Development Summit, September 11 and 12, 2012 in Boston, MA.
Developing an effective, marketable protein drug through effective protein formulation development is an important sector of the pharmaceutical industry. Many challenges are currently preventing optimal formulation since protein molecules are so difficult to handle ‘at benchside’ and deliver to a patient ‘at bedside’.
The current hurdles faced by researchers include selecting different formulation compositional elements including optimal pH, optimal buffers, optimal excipients, inferring structural chemical, physical and biological stability, ensuring minimal aggregation through effective predictive methods and undertaking novel delivery techniques through efficient early preformulation.
The Protein Formulation Summit event provides insight into innovative techniques for these dilemmas and technologies with which to predict, screen, test and accelerate formulation development towards license approval. There is currently no rational approach to develop a protein biotherapeutic, and the summit will seek to provide the information for formulation scientists to construct this.
Topics to be covered at the summit include:
