Synopsis

The ability to access the large surface area of the lung makes pulmonary delivery an increasingly attractive option, not only for treating respiratory diseases but also to target rapid systemic uptake. To maximise delivery to the lung, however, particles must have tight size distributions and be easy to aerosolise. Traditional approaches to achieving the necessary requirements for inhalation (e.g. micronisation) often lead to undesirable properties which negatively impact stability and lung deposition, as well as introducing formulation complexity. This presentation will describe alternative strategies that facilitate the rapid development of optimised inhaled therapies, including the application of supercritical fluid technologies.
