ZOOM Online: Dissolution and the assessment of bioavailability/bioequivalence – 3.5 hours

Register Interest

An optional half day webinar to follow the 2 day 'Pharmaceutical Dissolution Testing' course will deal with the use of dissolution testing in the assessment of bioequivalence, including biowaivers and in vitro-in vivo correlation. This additional component will also cover approaches for evaluating bioavailability and the conduct of clinical trials to establish bioequivalence. The risks of failing to establish bioequivalence because of poor choice of reference product batch and highly-variable pharmacokinetics are also discussed.

  • Bioavailability and bioequivalence"definitions and in vivo evaluation
  • In vitro biowaivers
  • In vitro-in vivo correlation
