Since the earliest dosage forms to modern drug delivery systems, came a great development and growth of knowledge with respect to drug delivery. Strategies to Modify the Drug Release from Pharmaceutical Systems will address principles, systems, applications and advances in the field.It will be principally a textbook and a reference source of strategies to modify the drug release. Moreover, the characterization, mathematical and physicochemical models, applications and the systems will be discussed.
- Addresses the principles, systems, applications and advances in the field of drug delivery
- Highlights the mathematical and physicochemical principles related to strategies
- Discusses drug release and its possible modifications

Marcos Luciano Bruschi, Ph.D., is Professor of Pharmaceutics and
Pharmaceutical Technology in the Department of Pharmacy at the State
University of Maringá (UEM), Paraná, Brazil. He gained a BSc in Pharmacy
(1996 - UEM, Brazil), a MD in Pharmaceutical Sciences (2002 - State University
of São Paulo - UNESP - Brazil) and a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences (2006 -
University of São Paulo - USP - Brazil and School of Pharmacy, Queen’s
University of Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK). In 2013-2014, he is accomplishing
a Post-Doctoral Degree in Pharmaceutics in the School of Pharmacy, Queen’s
University of Belfast (QUB - Northern Ireland, UK). He is registered with the
Brazilian Pharmaceutical Society and, in 1998, took up a lectureship in
Pharmaceutics in the School of Pharmacy, UEM, Brazil. In 1999, he was
appointed as a senior lectureship and to a personal Chair in Pharmaceutics and
Pharmaceutical Technology in 2006. His research concerns the development
and characterization of pharmaceutical dosage forms and drug delivery
systems, using natural or synthetic sources. Dr. Bruschi’s work has involved the
development of novel drug delivery systems, with particular emphasis on
micro/nanoparticles, semisolids, bio/mucoadhesives, thermoresponsive systems,
liquid crystaline phases, and natural products. He is the author of three Brazilian
patent requests and over 150 research papers/communications.
