Biopharmaceutics of Ocular Drug Delivery
Author(s): Peter Edman
A significant new book on drug delivery to the eye
Biopharmaceutics of Ocular Drug Delivery examines the current physiological, anatomical, pharmaceutical/technological, and biopharmaceutical knowledge on ocular drug delivery. Leading ophthalmic researchers cover topics such as the formulation and usage of ophthalmic solutions and suspensions, the influence of surfactants and preservatives on ocular drug absorption, and new techniques that include bioadhesion and the use of hyaluronic acid as an ophthalmic vehicle. Promising research on new delivery systems for improved drug therapy is highlighted, including new pharmaceutical vehicles, inserts, liposomes, nanoparticles, and prodrugs.
Biopharmaceutics of Ocular Drug Delivery is one of the few books available on drug delivery to the eye and will be an important reference for ophthalmologists, pharmacologists, pharmaceutical researchers, and other scientists interested in the topic.
