Description

Many controlled release veterinary drug delivery systems (CRVDDS) are presently in use, and recently there has been a host of new CRVDDS within veterinary medicine. The challenges of this area of drug delivery arise from the unique anatomy and physiology of the target animal, the cost constraints associated with the value of the animal being treated and the extended periods of time that delivery must be sustained for (often measured in months).


The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to the unique opportunities and challenges of the field of CRVDDS and to explain and discuss the basic controlled release principles underlying the development of CRVDDS. Its aim is to provide an overview of many of the areas where CRVVDS have application, and to highlight the opportunities and prospects for controlled release technology in the veterinary field.


Controlled Release Veterinary Drug Delivery comprises chapters that provide workers in the field (and those interested in this area) with information on the design, development and assessment of a variety of CRVDDS. The book contains chapters that describe the relevant animal physiological and anatomical considerations alongside descriptions of current and emerging controlled release delivery systems for a variety of routes for drug delivery, and present overviews on the physical and chemical assessment of veterinary controlled release delivery systems.


The veterinary area is abound with opportunities for the development of controlled release drug delivery technologies. It is an area of medicine that is open to the acceptance of novel drug delivery devices, and which readily encompasses the use of novel routes of administration. It is an area of many unmet needs, most of which offer opportunities and unique challenges for the innovative formulation scientist to provide solutions. This book will provide an insight into the biological, clinical and pharmaceutical challenges that face the formulation scientist in this interesting and diverse area of research.

Quotes and reviews

@from:(R. Daniels, Universität Braunschweig, Germany)
@qu:Although the basics of controlled release drug delivery systems for human and for veterinary use are similar, the details of drug delivery to animals are in fact very different. Thus, it is the purpose of this book to introduce the reader to the unique opportunities and challenges of the field of controlled release veterinary drug delivery systems (CRVDDS).
In summary, the book provides a sound and comprehensive overview of this challenging and exciting field of pharmaceutical research. Those who will go deeper into details will be guided by more than 1200 citations which are provided with the book.
It is recommendable to all workers in the field as well as to everybody who wants to get an insight in this interesting and diverse area of research.
