Delivery of Drugs: Expectations and Realities of Multifunctional Drug Delivery Systems examines the formulation of micro-nanosized drug delivery systems and recaps the opportunities in using physical methods to improve efficacy via mechano-, electroporation. This volume highlights an innovative delivery method like PIPAC along with discussion on regulatory aspects of complex injectables. Written by a diverse range of international researchers from industry and academia, the chapters examine specific aspects of characterization and manufacturing for pharmaceutical applications as well as regulatory and policy aspects. The Multifunctional Drug Delivery Systems books provide a platform to discuss opportunities and challenges in development of micro-nanomedicine and other drug delivery systems, review industrial manufacturing challenges, discuss current and future market trends, facilitate the insight sharing within various expertise area, and establish collaborations between academic scientists, industrial and clinical researchers;

This book connects formulation scientists, regulatory experts, engineers, clinical experts and regulatory stake holders. The wide scope of the book ensures it is a valuable reference resource for researchers in both academia and the pharmaceutical industry who want to learn more about the status of drug delivery systems.
