Concomitantly, there is an anticipated increase in the need for donor lungs due to expanding indications. Given that the respiratory tract is most commonly affected by COVID-19, there is an urgent need to develop donor assessment criteria while demonstrating safety and "efficacy" of lung donation following COVID-19 infection.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)'s guidelines and the Process Analytical Technology (PAT) approach conceptualize the idea of real time monitoring of a process, with the primary objective of improvement of quality and also of time and resources saving. New instruments are needed to perform an efficient PAT process control and Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS), thanks to its rapid and drastic development of last years, could be a very good choice, in virtue of its high versatility, speed of analysis, non-destructiveness and absence of sample chemical treatment. This work was aimed to develop a NIR analytical method for bilastine assay in powder mixtures for direct compression. Read More
