Formulation is at the core of transforming a bioactive molecule into a drug product. It ensures the drug has the required oral exposure and pharmacokinetics in humans, acceptable chemical and physical stability for shelf life and fulfills all criteria both from the medical and regulatory perspective for an effective human medicine. Considerable research is invested in formulations that enhance drug delivery to the site of action, minimizing the dose of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) required for efficacy.
