USP Panel Findings on Performance Tests for Inhalation and Nasal Products


In 2019 USP created an Expert Panel (New Advancements in Product Performance Testing) to do a gap analysis on the need for and possible creation of tests/standards for measuring the performance of drug products. The results of Working Groups within the Expert Panel have been presented in a series of articles in Pharmacopeal Forum and Dissolution Technology. The purpose of this webinar is to present to stake holders and interested members of the pharmacy community, the findings of the Working Group dealing with inhalation and nasal products and allow for questions and suggestion from participants for improvement/modifications for the Working Group’s findings.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the role of stimuli article as opposed to Official or Informational Chapters in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP).
  • Describe the process used by the USP Expert Panel to identify existing tests, gaps and challenges involved in drug performance testing.
  • Evaluate the findings of the Working Group addressing inhalation and nasal products as presented in the stimuli article.
  • Question and provide input to the findings of the Inhalation and Nasal Working Group.
