Abstract Determining bioequivalence for solution pressurized metered dose inhalers (pMDI) is difficult because the critical characteristics of such products are poorly defined. The aim of this study was to elucidate the non-aerodynamic properties of the emitted aerosol particles from two solution pMDI products that determine their biopharmaceutical differences after deposition. Novel particle capture and analysis techniques were employed to characterize the physicochemical and biopharmaceutical properties of two beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) products: QVAR and Sanasthmax. The BDP particles emitted from the Sanasthmax inhaler were discernibly different those emitted from QVAR in terms of size (50\% larger, less porous), solid state (less crystalline) and dissolution (20-fold slower). When deposited onto the surface of respiratory epithelial cell layers, QVAR delivered ∼50\% more BDP across the cell layer in 60 min than Sanasthmax. Biopharmaceutical performance was not attributable to individual particle properties as these were manifold with summative and/or competing effects. The cell culture dissolution-absorption model revealed the net effect of the particle formed on drug disposition and was predictive of human systemic absorption of BDP delivered by the test inhalers. This illustrates the potential of the technique to detect the effect of formulation on the performance of aerosolized particles and contribute to assessment of bioequivalence.
