SMi Group have announced that Ezequiel Monteagudo, Platform Expert at GlaxoSmithKline will be joining the speaker line-up for the 15th annual Controlled Release Delivery conference in London.

Speaking on Day 1 of the event, Ezequiel will be exploring developing new formulations with his opening address Oral Lipid Based Formulations, General Advantages, Challenges and Taste Masking Approaches. The key highlights will include:

• Advantages of Lipid Taste Oral Formulations for Poorly Soluble Compounds
• Taste Masking Challenges Derived from APIs and Formulations
• Latest Technologies Applied to Taste Masking Evaluation

This comes at a relevant time, with orally administrated drugs presenting a lucrative chunk of the pharmaceutical market. At the same time, the efficiency of taste-masking has played a key role in the success of final solid oral dosage forms.

Related presentations at the conference focusing on formulation development include
• Multi Phasic Oral Drug Delivery - In-Vivo Opportunities and Challenges
• Abuse Deterrent Formulation Technologies - Requirements, Development and Testing
• Solubility and Bioavailability Enhancement Strategies for Oral Dosage Forms

More details about the presentations as well as the full speaker line-up for the conference can be found on

Now running for 15 years, Controlled Release Delivery 2018 aims to explore and to understand innovations in oral-lipid based and abuse deterrent formulations, nanoparticles and nanotechnologies, taste-masking and controlled release approaches, 3D printed dosage forms and functional film coats.
