Applications for Understanding Mechanisms of Food Effects & pH Dependent Drug Solubility
Date: March 22, 2012
Time: 8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
Topic: Dynamic Dissolution Testing Using TIM-1
Speaker: Dr. John E. Sagartz, President and CEO, Seventh Wave Labs
Location: WilmerHale Venture Group Office in Waltham, MA
Through its collaboration with TNO, Seventh Wave offers dynamic dissolution testing using the TIM-1 system, a computer-controlled in vitro gastrointestinal system with applications in formulation performance evaluation. This presentation will provide a brief overview of TIM-1 and will focus on its utility in predicting the effects of food and pH on bioavailability of drugs. Further, the presentation will describe modifications to the TIM-1 settings which enable determination of the mechanisms of these effects in vitro.
