Transdermal and Topical Drug Delivery from Theory to Clinical Practice

Front Cover
Pharmaceutical Press, 2003 - Medical - 242 pages
The therapeutic benefits of administering drugs through the skin have been recognized for many years and have been capitalized upon in commercially successful and important transdermal delivery systems, such as estradiol patches for hormone replacement and nicotine patches as aids to smoking cessation. "Transdermal and Topical Drug Delivery" addresses all aspects of how to deliver drugs to the skin for local effects or across the skin for systemic therapy. Starting with a discussion of the principles underlying the area, the text expands into strategies used to deliver drugs effectively. This should be a valuable practical guide for the clinical delivery of drugs.
