Pharmaceutical formulations remain as much an art today as they have evolved into complex science. With exponential growth of generic formulations, the need for ready formulations has increased. Essentially a cookbook for making drugs, the six-volume handbook contains the recipes and process steps for over 2000 drugs, including a number of biotechnology drugs. This first volume covers tablets, both coated and uncoated and oral powders. The author has painstakingly assembled this book from FDA New Drug Applications, patent applications and the BASF book of generic formulations, all supplemented by his 30-plus years of experience in pharmaceutical formulations.
