Advances in Pharmaceutical Technology
Advances in Pharmaceutical Technology, a new book series from Wiley, takes up the drug development story where Wiley-VCH's successful series Methods and Principles in Medicinal Chemistry ends — when a potential new drug molecule has been identified. This new series covers the principles, methods and technologies that the pharmaceutical industry uses to turn that candidate molecule into final drug form: optimizing the therapeutic performance of the molecule, designing, characterizing and producing the best formulation, testing the drug in clinical trials, and manufacturing the final product. The focus will be on new technologies and methods. Each book will be edited by an internationally-recognized expert in the field who will select, invite, and edit review-style chapters from an international team of active researchers.

Drug therapy via inhalation route is at the cutting edge of modern drug delivery research. There has been significant progress on the understanding of drug therapy via inhalation products. However, there are still problems associated with their formulation design, including the interaction between the active pharmaceutical ingredient(s) (APIs), excipients and devices. This book seeks to cover some of the most pertinent issues and challenges of such Read More
Molecular modeling techniques have been widely used in drug discovery fields for rational drug design and compound screening. Now these techniques are used to model or mimic the behavior of molecules, and help us study formulation at the molecular level. Computational pharmaceutics enables us to understand the mechanism of drug delivery, and to develop new drug delivery systems.
The book discusses the modeling of different drug delivery systems, including Read More
Many newly proposed drugs suffer from poor water solubility, thus presenting major hurdles in the design of suitable formulations for administration to patients. Consequently, the development of
techniques and materials to overcome these hurdles is a major area of research in pharmaceutical companies.
