PIC Center of Excellence in FIH studies
We are a pioneer in the utilization of Lonza Xcelodose® Precision Powder Micro-dosing Systems for rapid FIH studies utilizing powder-in-capsule (PIC) approach. By eliminating the need for excipients and associated studies, we have found that phase I studies can be reached 45% faster than alternative formulation approaches. PIC capabilities are a key component of our SimpliFiH® Solutions first-in-human services which integrate drug substance, particle engineering, technology selection and phase-appropriate drug product for phase I studies.
Xcelodose® technology has proven capabilities to precisely and consistently dose capsules from 0.1 to 120 mg at less than 2% RSD. This micro-dosing capability facilitates rapid FIH studies for candidate compounds and especially suited for highly potent and low dose applications.
Tampa serves as a Center of Excellence for PIC studies utilizing ten Xcelodose® systems under development and cGMP conditions, and is capable of accommodating HPAPI applications to OEB 4/5. Our team has developed best practices based on PIC studies over more than 2,000 batches across a range of molecules and formulation challenges.
