Soft Gelatin Capsules
Softgel capsules - What are the benefits to my early stage drug development project process?
Softgel capsules are a valuable pharmaceutical dosage form option for formulation of oily, oil suspended, or oil soluble compounds. Semi-solids may even be filled into softgel capsules.
Capsules are composed of either vegetable or animal derived sources and can be filled with many excipients such as oleic acid, polyethylene glycol 400 (PEG 400), and sorbitan. These components may also aid in the bio-availability of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).
Early phase softgel capsule formulations can be scaled up to commercial scale. In early phase clinical studies, hand filled softgel capsules are an extremely flexible and phase appropriate drug formulation strategy.
