Controlled Drug Delivery

Designing Technologies for the Future

Despite the public desire for a magic bullet--a drug that cures the ailment and is easy to take--most drugs require a sustained release to the target area as opposed to a burst, hence the need for controlled release devices. This volume devotes separate sections to current work in each of the key aspects for developing these devics, including the route of administration, drug delivery vehicles, drug targeting, and modulated drug delivery.
