BIOPHARMACEUTICAL CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM  A scientific framework for classifying drug substances based on their aqueous solubility and intestinal permeability  Established by Gordon Amidon et al.  BCS has gained importance worldwide as a drug product regulation tool For scale-up and post-approval changes  The aim of the BCS is to provide a regulatory tool for the replacement of certain BE studies by conducting accurate in vitro dissolution tests.
  6. 6. BIOPHARMACEUTICS CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM (as defined by the FDA after Amidon et al.)
  7. 7. BCS CLASS MEMBERSHIP Class I Propranolol Verapamil Metoprolol Class II Ketoprofen Naproxen Carbamazepine Low High Class IV Furosemide Hydrochlorothiazide Class III Ranitidine Cimetidine Atenolol Vancomycin High Low
  8. 8. Classification of a drug depends upon its three key parameters, that control absorption: Solubility Dissolution rate permeability that correlate with three respective dimensionless parameters Dose no. Dissolution no. Absorption no.
  9. 9. DOSE NUMBER A function of solubility of drug substance Should be less than 1. It is the dose concentration/solubility ratio            V Water C S D Highest Dose Unit Do 250 mL Solubility
  10. 10. DISSOLUTION NUMBER A function of drug release from formulation • Defined as the ratio of mean residence time to mean Should exceed 1 dissolution time Dn= [TGI/TCD] TGI = Residence time in GI (approx. 180 min) TCD= Time required for complete dissolution
  11. 11. ABSORPTION NUMBER “A function of GI Permeability to Drug Substance” • Absorption number (An) is the time required to absorb the • It is the ratio of the mean residence time to mean A T n GI T ABS administered dose absorption time. TGI = Residence time in GI (approx. 180 min) TABS Time required Should exceed = for complete 1 absorption
  12. 12. PERMEABILITY DETERMINATION A. Determination of extent of absorption in humans: • Mass balance P/K studies • Absolute bioavailability studies B. Intestinal permeability methods: • In vivo intestinal perfusion studies in humans • In vivo or in situ intestinal perfusion studies in animal • In vitro permeability methods using excised human/animal intestinal tissues • In vitro permeation studies across a monolayer of cultured epithelial cells. e.g. Caco-2 cells or TC-7 cells
  13. 13. DISSOLUTION DETERMINATION  USP apparatus I (basket) at 100 rpm or USP apparatus II (paddle) at 50 rpm.  Dissolution media (900 ml): 0.1 N HCl or simulated gastric fluid, pH 4.5 buffer, and pH 6.8 buffer or simulated intestinal fluid.  Compare dissolution profiles of test and reference products using a similarity factor (f2). If f2= 100 ; dissolution profiles are identical N= no. of dissolution time points Rt = dissolution value of the reference drug product at time t Tt = dissolution value of the test drug product at time t
  14. 14. SOLUBILITY DETERMINATION “Shake flask method” • pH- solubility profile of test drug in aqueous media within a pH range of 1.0-7.5 • A minimum of three replicate determinations of solubility in each pH condition • Methods other than shake flask method (with Justification). e g. acid or base titration methods
  15. 15. CLASS BOUNDARIES  HIGHLY SOLUBLE; the highest dose strength should be soluble in < 250 ml water over a pH range of 1 to 7.5. (The volume estimate-a glassful i.e. 8 ounce)  HIGHLY PERMEABLE when the extent of absorption in humans is determined to be > 90% of an administered dose  RAPIDLY DISSOLVING when > 85% of the labeled amount of drug substance dissolves within 30 minutes using USP apparatus I or II in a volume of < 900 ml buffer solutions.
  16. 16. BCS CLASS BOUNDARIES: OBJECTIVES Dissolution (Product) Solubility (Drug) Permeability (Drug) Rapid dissolution - ensure that in vivo dissolution is not likely to be the “rate determining” step High solubility- ensure that solubility is not likely to limit dissolution and, therefore, absorption High permeability - ensure that drug is completely absorbed during the limited transit time through the small intestine
  17. 17. IVIVC EXPECTATIONS FOR IRP BASED ON BCS Class Solubil ity Perme ability Absorption rate control IVIVC expectations for Immediate release product I High High Gastric emptying IVIVC expected, if dissolution rate is slower than gastric emptying rate, otherwise limited or no correlations II Low High Dissolution IVIVC expected, if in vitro dissolution rate is similar to in vivo dissolution rate, unless dose is very high. III High Low Permeability Absorption (permeability) is rate determining and limited or no IVIVC with dissolution. IV Low Low Case by case Limited or no IVIVC is expected.

  24. 24. Background: About biowaivers
  25. 25. BCS BASED BIOWAIVER A biowaiver is an exemption from conducting human bioequivalence studies Criteria for Biowaiver Immediate-release solid oral dosage form Rapid and similar dissolution. High solubility &High permeability. Wide therapeutic window. Excipients used in dosage form are same as those present in approved drug product • Companies can potentially save thousands of dollars in costs, and several months of time in development, if bioequivalence studies are avoided
  26. 26. REQUEST FOR BIOWAIVERS Data Supporting :- Rapid and Similar Dissolution High Permeability High Solubility Biowaiver: Class III compounds are eligible biowaiver if they dissolve within 15 minutes in buffer media pH 1.2 –6.8 (75 rpm) Biowaiver: Class II acids with D:S ratio < 250 ml at pH 6.8 and > 85 % dissolved within 30 minutes at pH 6.8 (75 rpm)
  27. 27. NO BIOWAIVER FOR: As the BCS is only applicable to APIs which are absorbed from the small intestine; drugs absorbed from other sites (e.g. from the oral cavity) are not eligible for a biowaiver non-oral immediate release forms with systemic action modified release products transdermal products
  28. 28. SURROGATE MARKERS Drug product Drug Possible surrogate marker for bioequivalence Topical steroid Hydrocortisone Skin blanching Anion exchange resin Cholestyramine Binding to bile acids Antacids Mg & Al hydroxide gel Neutralization of acid Topical antifungal Ketoconazole Drug uptake into stratum corneum
  29. 29. SIGNIFICANCE OF BCS Regulatory toll for replacement of certain BE studies. It can save both time and money—if the immediate -release, orally administered drug meets specific criteria, the FDA will grant a waiver for expensive and time-consuming bio-equivalence studies. Valuable tool for formulation scientist for selection of design of formulated drug substance. When integrated with other information provide a tremendous tool for efficient drug development. Reduces cost and time of approving Scale- up and post approval challenges. Applicable in both pre-clinical and clinical drug development process. Works as a guiding tool in development of various oral drug delivery systems.
  30. 30. BCS can be used as a key component to guide drug delivery system design for any route of administration
  31. 31. DRAWBACKS OF BCS BIOWAIVERS • Sponsors are sometimes reluctant to apply for biowaivers due to the perceived lack of certainty of acceptance by the regulatory agencies. • Industrial implementation of BCS may also be limited due to: – unnecessary barriers in existing guidelines – compartmentalization of company resources – or a general lack of knowledge about BCS or the biowaiver process.

Notes de l'éditeur

  • Whenever a new drug moiety is discovered, one of the 1st questions a pharmaceutical company asks is….whether or not the drug can be effectively administered by the oral route, for its intended use

    Biopharmaceutical Classification System (BCS) is a scientific framework for classifying drug substances based on their aqueous solubility and intestinal permeability

  • Biopharmaceutical Classification System (BCS) is a scientific framework for classifying drug substances based on their aqueous solubility and intestinal permeability
  • BCS was originally used to grant biowaivers for scale-up and post-approval changes for drug products, but was later extended to the approval of new generic products.

  • FDA suggests as a potential internal standard
  • (Determination in Caco II cells only applicable to passively absorbed substances)
  • A drug substance is considered “highly soluble” when the highest clinical dose strength is soluble in 250 mL or less of aqueous media over a pH range of 1–7.5 at 37 °C

  • when the dissolution rate is much greater than the gastric emptying, dissolution is not likely to be rate-limiting
  • BCS Can be used to obtain a biowaiver
  • It has been estimated that the application of BCS can result in annual savings of $35 million for
    the pharmaceutical industry
