Applications of Nanovesicular Drug Delivery provides thorough insights and a complete and updated discussion on the preparation, properties and drug delivery applications of various nanovesicles. This volume will discuss target-specific drug application, such as ocular, transdermal, nasal, intravenous and oral delivery. This title is a valuable resource for academics, pharmaceutical scientists, including industrial pharmacists and analytical scientists, health care professionals and regulatory scientists actively involved in pharmaceutical products and process development of tailored-made polysaccharides in drug delivery applications. Recently, there have been a number of outstanding nanosystems in nanovesicular carrier-forms (such as nanoemulsions, self-nanoemulsifying systems, nanoliposomes, nanotransferosomes, etc.), that have been researched and developed for efficient drug delivery by many formulators, researchers and scientists. However, no previously published books have covered all these drug delivery nanovesicles collectively in a single resource.

Key Features

  • Provides thorough insights and up-to-date discussions about the various systems of nanovesicular drug delivery
  • Covers advanced trigger-assisted systems (such as iontophoresis, ultra-sound triggering, etc.) and how they have been used for improved drug delivery by nanovesicles
  • Presents recent advances in drug delivery fields by global leaders and experts from academia, research, industry and regulatory agencies
  • Includes an updated literature review of relevant key topics, good quality illustrations, chemical structures, attractive flow charts and well-organized tables


Postgraduate students, doctoral and postdoctoral research fellows, academician, pharmaceutical scientists including industrial pharmacists & analytical scientists. Health care professionals and regulatory scientists actively involved in pharmaceutical product and process development of tailored-made polysaccharides in drug delivery applications
