Volume 2 addresses the applications and approaches in advanced drug delivery systems, including transdermal, pulmonary, and ocular routes. In addition, this text discusses the impact of the shift to personalized medicines in the fields of pharmaceutical biotechnology, pharmacogenomics, and nanotechnology.

Volume 2 investigates:

• sustained- and controlled-release drug delivery systems

• bioequivalence

• cutaneous and transdermal delivery processes and systems

• design and evaluation of ophthalmic pharmaceutical products

• delivery of drugs by the pulmonary route

• pediatric pharmaceutics and formulation

• biotechnology-based pharmaceuticals

• veterinary pharmaceutical dosage forms

• target-oriented drug-delivery systems and modern evaluation

• techniques for medicinal products

• aspects of pharmaceutical physics and nanotechnology
