Drug Delivery Systems for Metabolic Disorders presents the most recent developments on the targeted delivery of drugs to deal with metabolic disorders in a safe, compliant and continuous way. The book covers recent developments in advanced drug delivery systems in various metabolic disorders, including disturbances in protein, lipid, carbohydrate and hormone metabolism and lysosomal and mitochondrial disorders. It provides a brief introduction to metabolic disorders, along with a focus on the current landscape and trends in understanding disease pathology using different in vitro and in vivo models required for clinical applications and developments of new therapeutics. Each subsequent chapter covers drug delivery systems dedicated to metabolic diseases caused by disturbances in protein, lipid, carbohydrate and hormone metabolism. Then, it moves on to cover lysosomal storage disorders and applications of phytopharmaceuticals in this context. This is the perfect reference for researchers in pharmaceutical science who are interested in developing new treatments for metabolic diseases.
