Unpleasant taste is the biggest barrier for completing treatment in pediatrics and 30% to 40% of parents had children who rejected or refused a pill or liquid medication. 26% of geriatric patients reported difficulty swallowing tablets and capsules.
By applying a taste masking application, patient compliance can increase 53% to 90%. The correlation between taste masking and understanding the impact to patient adherence is critical for any successful treatment plan. This 4-part webinar series examines the challenges within the industry such as swallowability and palatability related to patient acceptability for oral drug formulations; an overview of taste masking strategies and techniques; population preferences and the taste experience.
In the fourth, and final, webinar of this series, you will learn about innovations regarding taste masking sensory and performance evaluation. Learn how these techniques can help accelerate your formulation development and confirm desired taste profile. Register to learn how to improve your products today.
