PHS 624 - Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Process II


Prerequisite, PHS 621 . This course explores Disperse Systems, Sterile pharmaceutical products, and Specialty Dosage Forms, as well as the effect of physicochemical properties of drug molecules on formulation, manufacturing, and administration of these pharmaceutical dosage forms. Specific topics covered include pharmaceutical calculations related to sterile preparations and specialty dosage forms; sterile techniques, safe handling, labeling and disposal of bio hazardous materials; stability of pharmaceutical products and the kinetic of the chemical processes involved; Biopharmaceutics, bioequivalency, and simulations; drug, protein, and nucleic acid delivery; and principals of manufacturing and quality control of sterile products, tablets, transdermal systems, aerosols, and controlled release dosage forms. This course may be taken without PHS 624L (laboratory component). (Offered spring semester.) 2 credits
