This title demonstrates how advanced formulation designs and delivery technologies can be used to improve drug efficacy and treatment outcomes in particular therapeutic categories or disease states. It discusses nanoparticle systems for cancer treatments, and also presents cutting edge immono-regulation agents for transplantation and the local targeting of drugs, especially poorly water soluble drugs to provide enhanced therapeutic outcomes. In addition, this title highlights areas of therapy showing the most promise for improvement in clinical outcomes via advanced formulation design.
