Educational objectives The aim of the course is giving the necessary expertise in the field of modern technology. The student will be able to apply the knowledge of the technological pharmaceutics to the relationships between technological and pharmakinetic properties of the modern drug dosage forms.
Prerequisites The student has to possess the basic notions of the conventional pharmaceutical dosage forms
Teaching methods lessons face-face
Learning verification modality The exam consists of an oral test, which has to be taken at the same time of the test of Cosmetic Products. It consists on a discussion-interview on the topics discussed during the course. The exam is passed if the student gets at least 18/30 in both modules. The test lasts about 30 minutes , but it depends on the performance of the test itself. The oral test aims at verifying the level of knowledge and understanding, as well as synthesis, achieved by the student. Moreover this oral test will verify if the student is able to communicate, his property of language and exposition as concerns the studied topics.
Extended program Biopharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutic classification system. Bioavailability and bioequivalence, generic drugs. Modified release dosage forms: definition and relative bioavailability profile. Drug solubility and technological approaches for improving apparent solubility and dissolution rate: polymorphs, amorphous and hydrate form, nanocrystals. Use of cosolvent and complexes. Solid dispersions: classification, preparation, advantages and applications. Cyclodextrins: definition, classification, derivatives, complexes of drug and cyclodextrins, applications. Lipidic oral formulations: definition, advantages and applications. Modified release systems, matrix and reservoir formulations, kinetics of release.
