Modern Pharmaceutics 5th Edition Volume 2 PDF Free Download: Applications and Advances
We have therefore continued only with chapters that fall within these criteria. It is of course difficult to separate an essentially applied subject into basic principles and applications, but we have chosen subjects that follow naturally from those in Basic Principles and Systems. In Applications and Advances we have added chapters on biotechnology-based pharmaceuticals, modern evaluation techniques for medicinal products, an overview chapter on pharmaceutical nanotechnology, as well as a chapter on aspects of pharmaceutical physics, a reflection of the still increasing molecular and quantitative basis of pharmaceutics. Expert chapters on bioequivalence, controlled release systems, transdermal delivery, delivery to the lung, and the design and evaluation of ophthalmic products cover most of the routes of administration. Pediatric and geriatric pharmaceutics are of increasing relevance not least due to its concurrence with the concept of personalized medicine. The chapter on veterinary pharmaceutical dosage forms discusses fascinating challenges and solutions that do not always exist in human medicine. Target-oriented drug delivery itself presents a whole gamut of challenges to the ingenuity of those that design both drugs and delivery systems. A chapter is devoted to this important aspect of pharmacy.
