This unit extends formulation and pharmaceutics concepts Semester 1 into advanced formulations and biological products. Compounding and manufacture of complex dosage forms will be introduced with a focus on non-oral routes of administration. This information will be used to demonstrate how the route of administration for a dosage form affects the rate and extent of drug disposition in the body. This unit will also introduce bioequivalence and its role in ensuring equipotent dosing amongst generic products.

This unit is taught in combination with 9000 Biopharmaceutics and Advanced Formulations.
