Book Description

This is a 2 volume set. Volume 1 is Dermatological and Cosmeceutical Development: Absorption Efficacy and Toxicity. Recent advances in our understanding of the development and morphology of normal skin has led to improved methods to deliver therapeutic compounds to selected targeted areas both within the skin and systemically. This reference provides a clear overview of current pharmaceutical and cosmetic practices in the management of both major and minor skin disorders, and provides an expansive overview of novel drugs and therapies used to treat these conditions. Written for scientists interested in dermatological therapy and those concerned with the marketing for pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, this text will also prove useful for students developing strong research methods. Volume 2 is Dermal Absorption and Toxicity Assessment, Second Edition The book Dermal Absorption and Toxicity Assessment supplies a state-of-the-art overview of the dermal absorption process, and is divided into six well organized sections. Written by internationally recognized experts in the field, this Second Edition is a complete revised and updated text, covering the wide range of methods used to assess skin absorption and the various governmental and industrial programs concerned with skin permeation and toxicity. These include alternative in silico, in vitro, and in vivo strategies to conduct studies for regulatory requirements. To make room for this new expanded content, the editors are publishing a concurrent text entitled: Dermatological and Cosmetic Development with a concentration on subjects concerned with dermatological and cosmetic therapies. Dermal Absorption and Toxicity and Assessment is a completely revised and updated text expanded to include coverage pertaining to innovative research…expands on the specific barrier properties of the skin such as its physical structure, biosensor properties, cutaneous metabolism, skin lipid morphology, and dermal blood and lymphatic flow, examines both the standard established laboratory techniques, for example, diffusion cell technology, and also covers new techniques like cultured skin equivalents, dermal absorption, and risk assessment
