Low drug bioavailability is one of the primary concerns associated with marketed medications; in fact, various studies indicate that around 40% of available drugs are poorly bioavailable / soluble. As the drug developers shift their focus towards development of lipophilic drug compounds, the issue with aqueous solubility / drug bioavailability is likely to be increase further. It is estimated that around 90% of NCEs belong to BCS class II and IV, which are known to be associated with low solubility / permeability. To cater to this increasing demand, several biologics contract manufacturers and technology providers have emerged in this domain.
