Predictive Lung Deposition Models for Safety and Efficacy of Orally Inhaled Drug Products Program.

by:

The United States Food and Drug Administration, otherwise referred to as the USFDA, an agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is generally responsible for protecting and promoting public health through the regulation and supervision of food safety, tobacco products, dietary supplements, prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, blood transfusions, medical devices, electromagnetic radiation emitting devices, veterinary products, and cosmetics.

The USFA has recently formed a collaboration with the National Institutes of Health to establish the Predictive Lung Deposition Models for Safety and Efficacy of Orally Inhaled Drug Products Program.

The primary goal of the program is to develop computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of orally inhaled drug products that can account for drug product characteristics and physiological parameters on total and regional deposition in the lungs.

This is all in conjunction with the USFDA's objective of developing a CFD model that will be capable of of predicting highly localized deposition of pharmaceutically relevant polydisperse aerosols from metered dose inhalers (MDIs) and dry powder inhalers (DPIs).

In addition, the results that will be derived from this study will then be utilized to create a linked CFD-compartment model that can predict the effects of lung deposition on safety (systemic exposure) and efficacy (local delivery) for locally acting orally inhaled drugs.   (continued...)
