Practical drug development approaches presented by leadingexperts Designed to support the development of new, effectivetherapeutics, Topical and Transdermal Drug Delivery: Principlesand Practice explains the principles underlying the field andthen demonstrates how these principles are put into practice in thedesign and development of new drug products. Drawing together andreviewing the latest research findings, the book focuses onpractical, tested, and proven approaches that are backed byindustry case studies and the authors' firsthand experience.Moreover, the book emphasizes the mechanistic information that isessential for successful drug product development. Topical and Transdermal Drug Delivery: Principles andPractice is divided into two parts: Part One, Current Science, Skin Permeation, andEnhancement Approaches, offers readers a fundamental understandingof the underlying science in the field. It describes the principlesand techniques needed to successfully perform experimentalapproaches, covering such issues as skin permeation, enhancement,and assessment. Part Two, Topical and Transdermal Product Development,guides readers through the complete product development processfrom concept to approval, offering practical tips and cautions fromexperts in the field. This part also discusses regulations that arespecific to the development of dermal drug products. The finalchapter explores current and future trends, forecasting newdevelopment techniques and therapeutics. Throughout the book, the authors clearly set forth the basicscience and experimental procedures, making it possible forresearchers to design their own experimental approaches andaccurately interpret their results. With contributions from experienced drug researchers, this textis highly recommended for all researchers involved in topical andtransdermal product development who need to know both the state ofthe science and the standards of practice.
