By Edith Mathiowitz, Donald E. Chickering III, Claus-Michael Lehr

This worthwhile reference provides a entire evaluation of the elemental tools for characterizing bioadhesive fabrics and enhancing automobile focusing on and uptake-offering probabilities for reformulating present compounds to create new prescription drugs at decrease improvement charges. Evaluates the original provider features of bioadhesive polymers and their energy to augment localization of added brokers, neighborhood bioavailability, and drug absorption and delivery! Written by way of over 50 overseas specialists and reflecting vast wisdom of either conventional bioadhesive techniques and novel scientific purposes, Bioadhesive Drug supply structures ·discusses mechanical and chemical bonding, polymer-mucus interactions, the impact of floor power in bioadhesion, polymer hydration, and mucus rheology ·analyzes biochemical homes of mucus and glycoproteins, phone adhesion molecules, and mobile interplay with - and third-dimensional surfaces ·covers microbalances and magnetic strength transducers, atomic strength microscopy, direct measurements of molecular point adhesions, and techniques to degree cell-cell interactions ·examines bioadhesive providers, diffusion or penetration enhancers, and lectin-targeted autos ·describes vaginal, nasal, buccal, ocular, and transdermal drug supply ·reviews bioadhesive interactions with the mucosal tissues of the attention and mouth, and people within the respiration, urinary, and gastrointestinal tracts ·explores problems with product improvement, medical trying out, and creation ·and extra! Amply referenced with over 1400 bibliographic citations, and illustrated with greater than three hundred drawings, images, tables, and demonstrate equations, Bioadhesive Drug supply platforms serves as a legitimate foundation for innovation in bioadhesive structures and a very good creation to the topic. This particular reference is perfect for pharmaceutical scientists and technologists; chemical, polymer, and plastics engineers; biochemists; actual, floor, and colloid chemists; biologists; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate scholars in those disciplines.
