Development of In Vivo Predictive Dissolution Method for Orally Inhaled Drug Products (U01): RFA-FD-13-014
SOURCE: U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 7/1/13 by 5 pm local time of applicant organization.
$ AVAILABLE: FDA intends to fund up to three grants, corresponding to a total of $200,000, for fiscal year 2013.
ELIGIBILITY: Public/state/private controlled institutions of higher education, nonprofits with and without 501(c)(3) IRS status (other than institutions of higher education), small businesses, for-profit organizations (other than small businesses), state governments, U.S. territories or possessions, Indian/Native American tribal government (federally recognized and other than federally recognized), Indian/Native American tribally designated organizations, non-domestic (non-U.S.) entities, Hispanic-serving institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs), Alaska native and native Hawaiian serving institutions, regional organizations, eligible agencies of the federal government, and faith-based or community-based organizations.
PURPOSE: The goal of this project is to develop an in vitro dissolution method for orally inhaled drug products (OIDPs) which will be capable of predicting in vivo dissolution of drugs that are administered via the inhalation route. The results obtained from this study will be used to gain better understanding of the formulation factors that impact dissolution and thereby in vitro-in vivo relationships for orally inhaled drugs.

In Vitro Release Tests for Transdermal Drug Delivery Systems (U01): RFA-FD-13-015
SOURCE: U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 7/1/13 by 5 pm local time of applicant organization.
$ AVAILABLE: FDA intends to fund up to one grant, corresponding to a total of $500,000, for fiscal year 2013.
ELIGIBILITY: Public/state/private controlled institutions of higher education, nonprofits with and without 501(c)(3) IRS status (other than institutions of higher education), small businesses, for-profit organizations (other than small businesses), state governments, county governments, city or township governments, special district governments, independent school districts, U.S. territories or possessions, non-domestic (non-U.S.) entities, Hispanic-serving institutions, regional organizations, eligible agencies of the federal government, and faith-based or community-based organizations.
PURPOSE: Many transdermal delivery systems (TDDS) are labeled to warn against applying heat to the TDDS as it may increase the rate of drug release. When the reference product contains these warnings, the generic product must also have the same labeling. This project will investigate in vitro - in vivo correlations of transdermal systems. The goal is to identify in vitro release test conditions that best identify heat effects on transdermal system release. These in vitro tests would be used in the review process to ensure that the performance of the proposed generic products does not introduce any additional safety risk.

The goal is to identify in vitro release test conditions that are best correlated with in vivo performance. In vivo performance could be assessed by human pharmacokinetic (PK) data, human microdialysis data or other proposed source.
