Advances in Polymeric Systems for Drug Delivery
This title examines new drug delivery strategies utilizing intelligent polymeric materials that perform sensing, processing and response functions. The authors demonstrate the design of polymers with integrated intelligent functions to achieve site specific and temporally controlled drug delivery, specifically for pharmaceutical applications. Using stimuli-responsive polymers as molecular devices for self-regulation and externally modulated drug delivery systems are reviewed from multi-disciplinary perspectives, employing materials science and bio-engineering as an important foundation.
