Research and Markets: Intelligent Drug-Delivery Platforms


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Future Science Ltd's report "Intelligent Drug-Delivery Platforms" to their offering.

The special focus issue, guest edited by Dr Paul C Ho (National University of Singapore, Singapore) and Dr Kit S Lam (University of California Davis, CA, USA), offers a look at the present approaches to drug delivery that employ novel designs, mechanisms or applications of existing platforms to achieve enhanced therapeutic delivery with an emphasis on novelty and innovation in current drug delivery.

The issue begins with a discussion on the important topic of clinical translation of smart nanotherapeutics by guest editor Kit S Lam and Joyce Lee, who see a bright future for nanotherapeutics, despite the many challenges involved with translating them into clinics. A commentary by guest editor Paul Ho looks at modern innovations in nanoparticulate delivery of combination chemotherapeutics.

Also featured in the issue is a perspective on the US FDA regulatory framework for intelligent drug-delivery systems by Dr Kim Sapsford (US FDA), an interview with rising drug delivery and bioengineering star Ali Khademhosseini (Harvard-Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and reviews on a wide range of intelligent drug delivery systems from thermoresponsive hydrogels to on-demand cancer drug delivery and multifunctional lipid-coated nanoparticles for cancer therapy.
