Tailor-Made Polysaccharides in Biomedical Applications provides extensive details on all the vital precepts, basics, and fundamental aspects of tailored polysaccharides in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries. This information provides readers with the foundation for understanding and developing high-quality products. The utilization of natural polymeric excipients in numerous healthcare applications demands the replacement of the synthetic polymers with natural polymers. Natural polymers are superior in terms of biocompatibility, biodegradability, economic extraction, and ready availability. Natural polymers are especially useful in that they are a renewable source of raw materials, as long as they are grown sustainably. Among these natural polymers, polysaccharides are considered as excellent excipients because they are nontoxic, stable, and biodegradable. Several research innovations have been carried out using polysaccharides in drug delivery applications. This book offers a comprehensive resource to understand the potential of these materials in forming new drug delivery methods. It will be useful to biomedical researchers, chemical engineers, regulatory scientists, and students who are actively involved in developing pharmaceutical products for biomedical applications by using tailor-made polysaccharides.
