Tergus CEO to Speak at 5th Annual Innovations in Dermatological Sciences Conference

Prestigious Conference Presented by the Center for Dermal Research at Rutgers University

RALEIGH-DURHAM, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 09/22/16 -- Tergus Pharma (www.terguspharma.com) CEO, Vijendra Nalamothu, PhD, will speak at the 5th annual Innovations in Dermatological Sciences conference. The two-day event, which has put together a stellar lineup of industry experts, will be held September 29-30, 2016 at the Marriott Renaissance Woodbridge hotel in Iselin, New Jersey. Dr. Nalamothu will discuss, "Semi-Solid Drug Product Characterization using Critical Process Parameters (CPPs) and Critical Material Attributes (CMAs). Linking Innovation and Clinical De-Risking using Appropriate Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs)."

With the FDA emphasizing incorporation of Quality by Design (QbD) principles very early on in drug product development, it is critical to approach formulation in a strategic way, using Critical Material Attributes (CMAs) with defined Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs) of the drug product. In this session, discussion will be focused on strategic development of topically administered dosage forms with a focus on Clinical De-Risking using innovative approaches to improve functional efficacy and achieve desired skin delivery profiles at the target site (skin/nail layers).

Various de-risking strategies to develop topical semisolid formulations targeting desired permeation/drug delivery profiles will be discussed from both a vehicle composition point of view and using tools such as CQAs. The session will include an overview of ways to screen formulations for these attributes and will discuss the importance of incorporating these screening tools early on as a stage gate approach to formulation development. Case studies will be presented to discuss the impact of specific excipients on permeation/release profiles and CQAs.

"I am honored to be invited to speak at the Innovations in Dermatological Sciences conference," said Vijendra Nalamothu, PhD, CEO and co-founder of Tergus. "The organizers have put together an august panel of speakers and I am pleased to be part of the program."

The company will also be participating in CPhI Worldwide conference in Barcelona, Spain. The conference will be on October 4th - 6th at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via.

Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
