Respiratory Drug Delivery VII

Respiratory Drug Delivery VII was held in Palm Harbor at Tarpon Springs, Florida from May 14 to May 18, 2000, and organized by Virginia Commonwealth University School of Pharmacy. It was the seventh in a series of international symposia concerning all aspects of drug delivery to the lung.

The scientific program ran for four days, and individual sessions targeted:

  • Asthma in the Third Millenium
  • New Therapeutic Opportunities
  • Manipulating PK & PD: Effects of Molecular Structure, Formulation and Regional Deposition
  • New MDI Formulations
  • Device Development: Control & Regulation
  • Special Forum: Bioequivalence in Multiphase Nasal Sprays
  • Progress in Drug Development
  • Characterizing Aerosol Size and Deposition
  • New Challenges in Aerosol Delivery Technology
