About this book

This truly comprehensive reference, in a mini-series format with five volumes, offers a detailed description of both well-known and recently introduced methods for percutaneous penetration enhancement. The first three volumes are devoted to the broad range of chemical methods used to enhance the skin delivery of drugs, including the vast variety of chemical penetration enhancers, drug and vehicle manipulation strategies, nanocarriers, and many others. The fourth volume discusses the diverse physical methods used in penetration enhancement, such as sonophoresis, iontophoresis, electroporation, microporation, laser ablation, and microneedles. Determination of drug penetration is covered in the final volume, with a focus especially on mathematics in skin permeation and modern analytical techniques adapted to assess and measure penetration. This edition of Percutaneous Penetration Enhancers will be an invaluable resource for researchers, pharmaceutical scientists, practitioners, and also students.

Reviews

“This book details the fundamental principles of drug design and formulations to penetrate the skin. It is a very detailed book designed for specialists working in this area of drug delivery technology. …  is designed for pharmaceutical scientists working in industry and academia, as well as younger researchers exploring the world of drug delivery via this route.” (Patrick J. McDonnell, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2016)
