The problem of supersaturating drug products might loosely be summed up as: “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the precipitate!” Indeed, more than 60% of new drug candidates are poorly soluble1 which can severely limit their bioavailability. To ameliorate this issue, a common approach is formulating to create supersaturated solutions of … Continued
