In vitro release and dissolution testing plays a vital role in several areas during drug development. Dissolution can be affected by drug substance factors (solubility, permeability, dissolution rate), dosage form factors (dissolution characteristics and manufacturing processes), and the methods used for its assessment (apparatus, method, dissolution medium). This course will step through the fundamentals of in vitro release and dissolution testing, focus primarily on the dissolution of solid oral dosage forms, and the effects of these factors in development and execution of successful dissolution testing.
