David Lyon


David Lyon, Ph.D., Senior Fellow, Global R&D


Subject Matter Expert: Bioavailability Enhancement

David Lyon serves as a Senior Fellow, Global R&D, at Lonza’s site in Bend, Oregon, USA, where he advises on internal and external collaborations for bioavailability enhancement technologies, modified release, and bioprocessing. David joined Bend Research as a Research Chemist in 1991. Read more


In Vitro Test Methodologies for Characterizing Bioavailability Enhancing Formulations

Wednesday, 12 May 2021. 4:45pm - 5:05pm (CEST)
About the presentation:
Amorphous solid dispersions (ASDs) are a leading technology option for improving oral bioavailability of poorly soluble compounds. In vitro methods for predicting the bioperformance of ASDs will be discussed during this presentation.

Rational selection of Amorphous Solid Dispersion (ASD) Compositions for Improving Drug Candidate Bio-performance

Thursday, 13 May 2021, 3:35pm - 4:25pm (CEST)
About the presentation: 
Low aqueous drug solubility in the pharmaceutical pipelines is a pervasive issue. In particular, rapidly growing therapeutic areas including oncology, anti-virals and anti-inflammatory indications are largely plagued by low solubility. As a result, a number of enabling technologies have been developed to improve oral drug absorption and bioavailability (BA). However, in recent years the most notable commercial products are those that utilize amorphous solid dispersions (ASD). This talk will address ASD technology and in vitro methodologies for rationally selecting ASD formulations. In vitro- in vivo correlations will be discussed.
