Accelerated Stability Assessment Protocols (ASAPs) are gaining increasing acceptance across the pharmaceutical industry as a means of predicting shelf life and understanding the effects of temperature and humidity on pharmaceutical stability.

In this presentation the theory and fundamentals of ASAPs are reviewed and discussed, covering topics such as the shapes of degradation profiles and reviewing the theoretical basis and experimental evidence for various ASAP models.  Some recent attempts to understand the effects of temperature and humidity on solid-state chemical degradation at a molecular level are also described.
