Maintains the largest reference on pharmaceutical formulationsLists readily accessible formulations as chemical entities, dosage forms or pharmacological classificationsProvides instant substantial time and cost savings in pharmaceutical research and developmentSpeeds generic drug formulation regulatory submissions The first volume in the six-volume Handbook of Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Formulations, this book covers compressed solids, the largest category of pharmaceutical formulations. It contains information on formulations for tablets and other compressed solids drawn from publicly available but widely dispersed in FDA New Drug Applications (NDA), patent applications, and other sources of generic and proprietary formulations. Each entry begins with a fully validated scaleable manufacturing formula and a summary of the manufacturing process. The book provides a detailed discussion on the difficulties encountered in formulating and manufacturing compressed solid products and the common elements of formulation. The section on regulatory and manufacturing guidance covers the topics of bioavailability and bioequivalence studies of orally administered drug products and provides quick tips on resolving the common problems in formulating compressed solids.
