Background: Coating of powder with magnesium stearate (MgSt) is a potential approach for formulating high dose powders for inhalation. The mechanism of improved de-agglomeration due to coating with MgSt is not well understood, but may be related to the tensile strength of cohesive powder beds. This study was designed to understand the mechanism of .. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
