The Development of a Thermodynamic Solubility Assay to Predict Possible Formulations of Low Aqueous Soluble Compounds
MetadataShow full item record
In recent years, drug discovery and development has become less productive. In the early stages, a kinetic system has been adopted to screen out low-aqueous soluble compounds, which are associated with high developmental barriers. However, this method dismisses compounds based on a property that can be increased through the use of solvent and/or excipient systems. The experiment described in this paper is to develop a thermodynamic solubility assay that can be used as a predictor of formulations for low aqueous soluble compounds. In order to be most universal, the compounds analyzed in this experiment represent a range of pKa's, partition coefficients, molecular weights, and melting points. Compounds are analyzed in a panel of solvents that include buffers and surfactants followed by the predictions of formulations based off of the data. This method efficiently identifies formulations that could be used in first-in-animal testing and ultimately in clinical studies.
