The recent years have witnessed major growth in the inhaled drugs market driven by rising prevalence of chronic pulmonary diseases, the evolution of inhaled therapies and technological advancements in device development. Challenges still remain to ensure safe and efficient respiratory drug delivery - including device and drug integration, particle engineering and formulation technologies, clinical studies and regulatory pathways. Our meeting facilitates hands-on experience sharing of successful development of inhaled drug products for enhanced patient care.
The call for speakers is open now.
Please find below the tentative schedule. Speaking sessions will be grouped according to similar themes into blocks and published upon finalizing the agenda, so please check back!

10:00 Dosing and process control technologies to cover the wide variety of Dry Powder Inhalers.
Dosing systems to fill DPI have to be adapted to the type of containment to be filled, the dosing range and the powder properties.
The functional principle of the different technologies, the integration into production machines and the requirements regarding powder properties will be described.
To mitigate the risk for under-filling during production, not being detected by statistical in-process controls, systems for the 100% in-line verification of fill weights have been developed.
Three different approaches will be presented.
