The subject referred to as computer-aided layout and manufacture has constructed speedily over the past twenty years. the diversity of configurations and assisting software program on supply to the aptitude consumer is bewildering. This extends from the cheap single-user micro-based method, via to the substantial business networks that are supported via many distant mainframe machines and feature been pronounced to carrier as much as 1000 workstations.

Until 1995, all marketed pMDI products contained CFCs as the delivery propellant. However, concerns over the possible detrimental ozone depleting effects of CFCs (89), reported in 1974, resulted in 150 nations signing the Montreal protocol in 1987, which committed the signatories to cease CFC production by 1996. In order to continue to use and develop pMDIs, pharmaceutical companies have subsequently committed significant resources to the development of CFC-free pMDI systems (90). The candidates that emerged from this research as potentially suitable CFC replacements were short-chain hydrofluoroalkanes (HFAs) (91): specifically, 1,1,1,2,3,3,3 Heptafluoropropane (HFA-227) and 1,1,1,2 Tetrafluoroethane (HFA-134a).

However, it is important to note, that such observations are difficult to compare, since different drugs, carrier size distributions and analytical techniques are used. Furthermore, other compounding factors may ultimately influence performance when trying to compare alternative carriers. For example, authors such as Steckel et al. g. lactose or mannitol) from multiple batches or different suppliers (47,50). That is not to say, it is impossible to make comparisons between materials, when certain carrier descriptors are altered, as long as most variables are retained constant.

18). For solution based systems, the relationships between, for example, co-solvent, non-volatile component and actuator orifice were developed by Lewis et al. (107,108,124) into a set of empirical equations that could describe the performance of a pMDI based on formulation variables. Improvements to internal pMDI components to increase therapeutic outcomes: Other advances in pMDI device technology have been a result of the modification of canister components, including valve, crimp assembly and internal canister materials.
