Inhaled pharmaceutical product development perspectives Challenges and opportunities

By Anthony Hickey, Brian Thomas

Inhaled Pharmaceutical Product Development Perspectives: Challenges and Opportunities describes methods and procedures for consideration when developing inhaled pharmaceuticals, while commenting on product development strategies and their suitability to support regulatory submission. It bridges the gap between the aspirations of scientists invested in new technology development and the requirements that must be met for any new product.

The book brings together emerging analytical and inhalation technologies, providing perspectives that illuminate formulation and device design, development, regulatory compliance, and practice. Focusing on underlying scientific and technical principles known to be acceptable from the current regulatory perspective, this monograph will remain useful as a high-level guide to inhaled product development for the foreseeable future.

Authors

Anthony HickeyAnthony J. Hickey, PhD, DSc, currently serves as a Distinguished Fellow and senior research pharmacologist at RTI International. He has more than 30 years of academic and research experience in the areas of pulmonary biology, aerosol physics, powder dynamics, pharmacokinetics and drug disposition, formulation design, and device development. His research has focused on improving understanding of the physiology, pharmacology, and immunology of the lungs. Throughout his career, Dr. Hickey has worked on intranasal and inhaled vaccine development and drug delivery for diseases affecting the respiratory tract, including asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease, tuberculosis, and cystic fibrosis. He has also studied the performance of powders and particles in drug and vaccine delivery systems. He received his PhD and DSc degrees in pharmaceutical sciences from the University of Aston in Birmingham, a master’s degree in toxicology from the University of Birmingham, and a bachelor’s degree in biology from Portsmouth Polytechnic.

Brian ThomasBrian F. Thomas, PhD, is Principal Scientist, Analytical Chemistry and Pharmaceutics, at RTI International. He has more than 20 years of experience in analytical chemistry and mass spectrometry. He is the principal investigator/co-principal investigator on two National Institute on Drug Abuse repository and purity specification contracts. His principal duties include overseeing the development of chromatographic assays and spectrophotometric assays for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of bulk chemicals or chemicals in dosage formulations, biological fluids, tissues, or other complex matrices. Dr. Thomas was recently awarded RTI’s President’s Award for his scientific contributions to the institute.
