In vivo BE studies are needed to demonstrate lack of impact of significant formulation changes on a drug’s bioavailability during its development, for post-approval line extensions, and when developing a generic product. Utilizing the critical properties of the drug substance and the drug product, and applying the BCS framework, assurance of in vivo BE findings can be obtained using extensive in vitro studies.
