Summary and Info
Delivering drugs in a water-insoluble formulation is a critical matter in therapeutic drug development. However, because a drug molecule has to be water soluble to be readily delivered to the cellular membrane while retaining its hydrophobic properties, issues surrounding water insolubility can postpone - or completely derail - important new drug development. Even much needed reformulation of currently marketed products can be significantly affected by these issues.This book systematically describes the techniques used for water-insoluble formulations, providing step-by-step guidance as well as scientific background on drug and water properties and how they contribute to solubilization and dissolution. A world-class team of experts discusses how these issues are viewed - and solved - by key industry and R&D institutions. This book provides a handy reference for pharmaceutical scientists in the handling of formulation issues related to water-insoluble drugs. In addition, this book may be useful to pharmacy and chemistry undergraduate students, and pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical graduate students, to enhance their knowledge in the techniques of drug solubilization and dissolution enhancement
