Tailor-Made Polysaccharides in Drug Delivery provides extensive details on all the vital precepts, basics and fundamental aspects of tailored polysaccharides in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry for understanding and developing high quality products. The book offers a comprehensive resource to understand the potential of the materials in forming new drug delivery methods. It will be useful to pharmaceutical scientists, chemical engineers, and regulatory scientists and students actively involved in pharmaceutical product and process development of tailored-made polysaccharides in drug delivery applications.The utilization of natural polymeric excipients in numerous healthcare applications demand the replacement of the synthetic polymers with the natural ones due to their biocompatibility, biodegradability, economic extraction and readily availability. The reality behind the rise in importance of these natural materials is that these sources are renewable if grown in a sustainable means and they can tender incessant supply of raw materials. Amongst these natural polymers, polysaccharides are considered as excellent excipients because of its non-toxic, stable, biodegradable properties. Several research innovations have been made on applications of polysaccharides in drug delivery.
Oral Delivery of Therapeutic Peptides and Proteins provides a complete overview of the journey scientists pursue to attain protein and peptide oral delivery. The book highlights the physiological challenges that must be accounted for in addition to overcoming protease inhibition and acid stability issues that are commonly mentioned in this area of research. Primary topics include formulation technologies being adopted for oral delivery of proteins and peptides, modification of actives to make them more suited for oral delivery, animal models and their shortcomings in assessing oral bioavailability, and in vitro models to simulate drug absorption and transport. Academics and industry researchers working in formulation development and researchers and advanced students in biotechnology and pharmacy will find this a useful resource.
A Pharmacology Primer: Techniques for More Effective and Strategic Drug Discovery, Sixth Edition features the latest research surrounding the application of pharmacology in drug discovery in an effort to equip readers with a deeper understanding of complex and rapid changes in this field. Written by well-respected pharmacologist, Terry P. Kenakin, this primer is an indispensable resource for anyone involved in drug discovery. This edition has been reorganized for better flow and clarity and includes material on new technologies for screening (virtual, DNA encoded libraires, fragment-based) and a major section on phenotypic (target agnostic) screening for new leads and determination of drug targets. With full color illustrations as well as new examples throughout, this book remains a top reference for all industry and academic scientists and students directly involved in drug discovery or pharmacologic research. New material includes a discussion of the determination of target engagement, including numerous new ways to demonstrate the physical interaction of molecules with drug targets and new drug candidates such a mRNA, gene therapy, antibodies and information on CRISPR and genomics.

Handbook of Basic and Clinical Ocular Pharmacology and Therapeutics provides a review of the basic anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and pathology of the eye with a focus drug therapy, drug delivery and use of therapeutic medical miniature devices. An understanding of the pharmacological actions of drugs acting on the eye requires the student and health care practitioner to learn additional principles in basic and clinical sciences that are unique to this organ. As a sensory organ, the eye is relatively inaccessible to the systemic circulation due to the blood-vitreous, blood-aqueous and blood-retinal barriers. Consequently, the administration of drugs for therapeutic effects in the eye necessitates an understanding of physico-chemical properties of the molecules and pharmacokinetic principles involved in the access to its site of action via topical, intracameral and intravitreal administration. This book includes information on the general principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs as it pertains to the eye and in combating ocular disorders and diseases. Using a disease-themed approach, the book discusses basic and clinical pharmacological principles involved in the therapy of these diseases including the ocular side effect of systemically-administered drugs, drugs used in ophthalmic surgery and miscellaneous agents, the therapeutic utility of biologics, drug conjugates, combination products, gene and cellular therapy are also covered. Handbook of Basic and Clinical Ocular Pharmacology and Therapeutics is useful as a primary and secondary source of reference for up-to-date information about the pharmacological mechanisms of action, pharmacokinetics, side effects, drug-drug interactions and therapeutic indications of drugs for pharmacologists, pharmaceutical scientists, students in the health care disciplines (nursing, pharmacy, optometry, medical), and practitioners in optometry and ophthalmology.
