Commitment to Innovation
Wolfe Laboratories has active internal research projects and collaborations to ensure that it has the most advanced technological capabilities. For collaborations involving small molecule product development, Wolfe Laboratories is exploring mechanisms of variable oral drug absorption as a function of physicochemical properties. Structure-based approaches are being used to effectively design solid forms for optimal drug product performance, the identification of pharmaceutically-relevant forms through comprehensive polymorph/solvate crystallization screening, and the assessment of relevant physicochemical properties in support of form selection. Several known or hypothesized formulation and release mechanisms are being interrogated, including amorphous solid dispersion supersaturation, precipitation of drug from formulation vehicles or gastric media, and drug release kinetics from hydrophilic and lipid systems.
Wolfe Laboratories also is investing heavily in antibody-drug conjugate research, an innovative area that is yielding powerful therapeutics in oncology. Wolfe Laboratories’ research program is in collaboration with professors in the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Kansas. The objective of this research is to identify the key chemical parameters of physical and chemical stability of antibody-drug conjugates to inform conjugate selection and formulations.
