Bioavailability (BA) is defined as the rate and extent to which the unchanged active substance is absorbed and becomes available in the systemic circulation. Understanding bioavailability is essential during drug development as it is one of the fundamental properties of drug formulation. Information on bioavailability is also used to determine bioequivalence (BE) when submitting a generic dossier.
Through interactive sessions and multiple case studies this 2-day course will evaluate every aspect of BA/BE from the regulations and types of protocol studies to bioanalysis, statistical analysis and reporting. The course will also examine key aspects of biowaivers such as the regulatory hurdles, types of biowaivers, data needed and the risk associated with submitting a biowaiver.
This course is designed for professionals working in the following areas:
