Webinar: New Research Revealed on a Promising Functional Alternative to Surfactants within Biologic Formulations

Event overview

The issues surrounding the use of polysorbates within liquid biologic formulations are well known within the industry. What isn’t so well understood are the alternatives to this technology. This webcast will explore an exciting excipient, Kleptose® BioPharma, and its application within biologic formulations as a potential functional alternative to polysorbates. 

The webcast discussion will:

  • Demonstrate the promise of this excipient in the development of biosimilars.
  • Present data on how polysorbates can be functionally replaced in liquid dosage forms.
  • Provide data-driven insights into the mechanism of action for HP-beta-cyclodextrins in protein formulations.

Key Learning Objectives 

  • Understand how cyclodextrins can be used in the formulation of biosimilars, especially those where the reference formulation contains polysorbates.
  • Understand the basic mechanism of action for cyclodextrins within protein formulations.
  • Learn how to tackle a new formulation challenge using cyclodextrins as an excipient tool.
