With the advent of analytical techniques and capabilities to measure particle sizes in nanometer ranges, there has been tremendous interest in the use of nanoparticles for more efficient methods of drug delivery.
Nanoparticulate Drug Delivery Systems addresses the scientific methodologies, formulation, processing, applications, recent trends, and emerging technologies in the research of nanoparticulate drug delivery systems (NPDDS).
It extensively covers applications of NPDDS- including lipid nanoparticles for dermal applications; nanocarriers for the treatment of restenosis; and for ocular, central nervous system, and gastrointestinal applications.
It also explores its use as an adjuvant for vaccine development. Supplying insight from international experts, this guideDiscusses formulation for poorly soluble drugsPresents biological requirements for nanotherapeutic applications Demonstrates the role of nanobiotechnology in the development of nanomedicineDocuments recent advances in nanoparticulate technology-including electrospining, formation of microcrystals, and production of liquid crystalline phasesExamines the technology of metallic nanoparticles
