Pharmaceutical formulation in pharmaceutics is the process in which various chemical substances including the vigorous drug are joined to produce a final medicinal product. Formulation studies involve developing a preparation of the drug which is both stable and acceptable to the patient. For orally taken drugs, this usually contains combining the drug into a tablet or a capsule. Formulations confirm that the drug is compatible with these other substances. In the pharmaceutical drug formulations, the different physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of a drug are considered so as to know what other ingredients should be used in the preparation. The various factors like polymorphism, particle size, pH, and solubility are all considered while formulating the drug, also considering the appearance of the tablet.

The drug subjected to drug development undergoes number of trials and are screened at different stages to produce a final potent drug intended for the treatment of various diseases. During this process various properties are checked to see whether the drug is non-toxic to living system and is therapeutic or not. Using suitable excipients and technological preparations the active substances are formulated into final dosage form. The last product is the Actual composition of preparation, manufacturing specification. Drug formulation can have a substantial impact on almost every quality characteristic of an API including potency, bioavailability, solubility, dosage, route of administration and stability. In immune offers parenteral drug formulation R&D services for primary stage and preclinical candidates with a special prominence in nanoparticle based drug delivery technology.

Clinical trials are the experiments done in clinical research. Clinical research ecosystem involves a complex network of sites, pharmaceutical companies and academic research institutions. Each clinical trial has a plan of action or a protocol for conducting trial. Clinical trials generate data on safety and efficacy. Different types of clinical research include Treatment, Prevention, Diagnostic, Screening, Quality of life, Genetic studies, Epidemiological studies, Phases of clinical trials (when clinical research is used to evaluate medications and devices)

Conducting a Bioavailability study enables assessment of the impact of route of administration on BA and defines the absolute bioavailability of the drug released from the drug product. BA for a given formulation provides an assessment of the relative fraction of the orally administered dose that is absorbed into the systemic circulation. If the reference standard is an IV dose, it is referred as Absolute Bioavailability. If the reference standard is any other dosage form than IV, it is referred as Relative Bioavailability. Micro and Micro nutrients play a vital role in bioavailability

Bioavailability is a subcategory of pharmacological absorption. Bioavailability is generally assessed by finding the area under the plasma concentration–time curve. The factors affecting bioavailability are Pharmaceutics factors, physicochemical properties of drug, Dosage form characteristics & Pharmaceutical Ingredients, Patient related factors like age, Routes of administration (Parenteral, Rectal, Oral, and Topical)  etc. Topics under this track includes Nutrient Bioavailability, Absolute Bioavailability, Relative Bioavailability, Mineral Bioavailability- Micro and Macro, Vitamins Bioavailability, BA of Contaminants in Soils & Sediments, Drug Absorption and Distribution, Disposition studies, Drug Formulation and Dosage Forms, Product design- Considerations, Bio accessibility Factor

A contract research organization (CRO) is an organization that provides support to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries in the form of research services outsourced on a contract basis. A CRO may provide such services as biopharmaceutical development, biologic assay development, commercialization, preclinical research, clinical research, clinical trials management, and pharmacovigilance. CROs also support foundations, research institutions, and universities, in addition to governmental organizations. Many CROs specifically provide clinical-study and clinical-trial support for drugs and/or medical devices. CROs that specialize in clinical-trials services can offer their clients the expertise of moving a new drug or device from its conception to FDA/EMA marketing approval, without the drug sponsor having to maintain a staff for these services.

Pharmaceutical freeze Technology is the removal of ice or other frozen solvents from a material through the process of sublimation and the removal of bound water molecules through the process of desorption. Lyophilization and freeze drying are terms that are used interchangeably depending on the industry and location where the drying is taking place. Controlled freeze drying keeps the product temperature low enough during the process to avoid changes in the dried product appearance and characteristics. It is an first-rate method for preserving a wide diversity of heat-sensitive materials such as proteins, microbes, pharmaceuticals, tissues & Plasma

The aim of bioavailability study is to find out the dosage form influence on the biological performance of the drug, sensitivity to detect differences in the rate and extent of absorption. Bioavailability and bioequivalence study design involves Single dose or multi dose standard 2x 2 crossovers, Parallel groups, for more than two formulations. Study design meant for estimating essential pharmacokinetic parameters differs significantly from a bioequivalence study meant for comparing the test formulation. The results of a pilot study can be used as the sole basis to document BA or BE provided the study’s design and execution are suitable and enough subjects have completed the study

Bioequivalence studies are done for Early and late clinical trial formulations, Formulations used in clinical trial and stability studies, if different Clinical trial formulations and to-be-marketed drug product when it comes to cost and productivity metrics, it’s often said that what gets measured gets done. Bioequivalence is determined based on the bioavailability of the innovator medicine versus the generic medicine. A typical outline for a bioequivalence study includes organization of the test and reference items on two events to volunteer subjects, with every organization isolated by a washout period. This Study involves parameters on (Cmax) and (AUC), Statistical evaluation.

Assessment of the bioequivalence of generic versions of certain reference drugs is complicated by the presence of endogenous levels of said compounds which cannot be distinguished from externally derived compound levels following drug administration. If unaccounted for, the presence of endogenous compound biases towards equivalence in bioequivalence studies of these drugs. Bioequivalence assessments may be complicated further as disposition of the exogenous analogue can be subject to various endogenous processes resulting in nonlinear pharmacokinetics. To overcome these inherent biases a number of different strategies have been employed.
