Webinar Details:  This webinar will explore the fundamental and applied aspects of inhalation pharmaceuticals in the context of currently-marketed inhalation aerosol products. In addition, future prospects will be presented in the context of novel research, cutting edge technologies, unmet medical needs in pulmonary medicine and regulatory considerations. In addition, the properties of the main types of pulmonary delivery systems used clinically and formulation properties will be presented. The interplay between lung physiology, pulmonary disease states, lung-particle biophysical interactions, formulation properties, device design and aerosol performance will be described in the context of clinically treating various types of pulmonary diseases with inhalation aerosol medicine for pulmonary diseases and non-pulmonary diseases.
