Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Active pharmaceutical ingredients have to be formulated in the most suitable dosage form according to the administration route. Suitable drug delivery is obtained through careful excipient selection and fabrication. Current advances in the development of novel drug dosage forms focus on the use of new excipients, innovative technologies, and better knowledge and control of pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. This Special Issue deals with the following items related to pharmaceutical dosage forms:

  • Dosage form optimization design based on DOE and multivariable analysis.
  • Use and application of novel excipients.
  • Innovation in drug formulation and characterization techniques.
  • Improvements in process quality control.
  • Continuous manufacturing.
  • Process analytical technology applied to drug manufacturing.
  • 2D and 3D printing technologies.
