The comprehensive guide on the theories, applications, and challenges for oral controlled release formulations
As the use of drugs employing oral controlled release formulations continues to grow in popularity, the pharmaceutical industry must adapt to new developments in order to select the most stable and scalable technology for achieving desired pharmacokinetic profiles.
Oral Controlled Release Formulation Design and Drug Delivery is the first book of its kind to cover every aspect of oral controlled release formulations, including controlled release mechanisms, preformulation, biopharmaceutics, in vitro–in vivo correlations (IVIVC), quality by design (QbD), and regulatory affairs. Comprehensive in scope, this reference contains chapters written by some of the leading experts in the field, as well as offering additional details through a mixture of figures, tables, and references to provide information not found in similar texts. This book also discusses:
The theoretical and applied practical guidance for scientists in developing oral controlled release (CR) formulations
How oral formulations can be made based on physico-chemical and biopharmaceutical properties of a drug
Why oral controlled release formulations are a hot topic for both R&D and commercial delivery products
Extending beyond traditional coverage of oral controlled release formulations based solely on design and process development, this book covers everything a pharmaceutical practitioner or student needs to know about this exciting and progressive drug delivery field to advance medicinal benefits for patients worldwide.
