ODTs - Closing the gap between the age groups

Past Event

About the webinar
With the ever growing population, the rise of more patient friendly dosage forms have emerged in the market, to meet the needs of both the aging population of patients over 60 years old and the new generation of children under 18 years old. Orally disintegrating forms have become the dosage form of choice, from tablets to mini-tablets and stickpacks they provide an easier dosage format for the intended end customers. 

In recent years, pharmaceutical innovation has led to the patients taste, memory and flavour preferences playing a decisive role into dosage form compliance and as a result indirectly affects efficiency. Therefore it is imperative to not only discuss the market trends, but to also explore troubleshooting in these areas. 

Join us to explore the possibilities, limitations and challenges within the current products on the market. We will discuss the factors determining the development of the ideal ODTs and share some interesting case studies.
