Catalent scientists highlight innovative drug delivery technologies with multiple poster presentations at the 2012 AAPS annual meeting

Scientists at Catalent Pharma Solutions will present eleven scientific posters at thisyear's American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) annual meeting which will take place October 14-18 in Chicago, IL.

The poster topics cover an extensive range of formulation capabilities thathelp to solve complex bioavailability, solubility, and permeability challenges.

Novel drug delivery technologies such as OSDRC®OptiDose™, a fully developed technology that is an advancement in controlled release design options and helps to improve therapeutic and drugdelivery release profiles beyond the capabilities that can currently be achieved; as well as more conventional drug delivery technologies like RP Scherer Softgel and Zydis® fast dissolve technology will be highlighted in the posters.
