Drug Delivery Aspects reviews additional features of drug delivery systems, along with the standard formulation development, like preclinical testing, conversion into solid dosage forms, roles of excipients and polymers used on stability and sterile processing. There is a focus on formulation engineering and related large scale (GMP) manufacturing, regulatory, and functional aspects of drug delivery systems. A detailed discussion on biologics and vaccines gives insights to readers on new developments in this direction.

The series Expectations and Realities of Multifunctional Drug Delivery Systems examines the fabrication, optimization, biological aspects, regulatory and clinical success of wide range of drug delivery carriers. This series reviews multifunctionality and applications of drug delivery systems, industrial trends, regulatory challenges and in vivo success stories. Throughout the volumes discussions on diverse aspects of drug delivery carriers, such as clinical, engineering, and regulatory, facilitate insight sharing across expertise area and form a link for collaborations between industry-academic scientists and clinical researchers.

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