Research and Markets: Nanoparticulate drug delivery: Perspectives on the transition from laboratory to market


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Nanoparticulate drug delivery: Perspectives on the transition from laboratory to market" to their offering.

Nanoparticulate drug delivery highlights and examines the transition of nanoparticulate drug delivery systems, operating at scales of billionths of a metre, from laboratory into a commercially viable sector. This has been a challenging journey, beginning in 2005 with the introduction of Abraxane, the first nanotechnology-based drug delivery product for the treatment of breast cancer, which marked the advent of nanotechnology in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry.

The book describes the need for various types of nanoparticulate drug delivery systems in different application areas, and assesses the challenges associated with their advance to society.

Key Topics Covered:

Nano Particulate systems as drug carriers: the need

- Nano

Particles as drug carriers

- Characterization techniques for nano

Particulate carriers

- Nanotoxicology: evaluating toxicity potential of drug-nano


- Regulatory aspects of nano

Particulate drug delivery systems

- Clinical trials and industrial aspects

- Case studies: nano-systems in the market.
