Amorphous solid dispersions (ASD) of a poorly soluble water-soluble VR1 antagonist (AMG 517) were explored for improving physical stability and in vivo exposure. AMG 517 was incorporated at 15 or 50 wt % into polymeric microparticles of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose acetate succinate (HPMCAS) and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) by spray-drying.

A spray-freeze drying encapsulation process using direct atomization into a chilled extraction solvent (ACES), in the absence of liquefied gas, was developed. Heat transfer models, developed to estimate droplet freezing time (t(f)), identified ACES conditions where solvent extraction, nonsolvent influx, and droplet deformation were minimized.

Parasitic nematodes are responsible for devastating illnesses that plague many of the world's poorest populations indigenous to the tropical areas of developing nations. Among these diseases is lymphatic filariasis, a major cause of permanent and long-term disability. Proteins essential to nematodes that do not have mammalian counterparts represent targets(More)
