Polymers in Drug Delivery: Concepts, Developments and Potential.- Amphiphilic Molecules in Drug Delivery Systems -- Sizing nanoparticles in liquids: an overview of methods -- Nanoparticles for oral delivery of insulin -- Bioartificial pancreas: in the road to clinical application -- Cationic liposome-based systems for nucleic acid delivery: from the formulation development to therapeutic applications -- Biomaterial-based vectors for targeted delivery of nucleic acids to the nervous system -- Three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds as drug delivery devices for Tissue engineering applications -- The Warburg Effect is a Guide to Multipurpose Cancer Therapy Including Trace Element Delivery -- In silico research in drug delivery systems -- The Importance of Controlled/Living Radical Polymerization Techniques in the Design of Tailor Made Nanoparticles for DSS.
This book is part of a series dedicated to recent advances on preventive, predictive and personalised medicine (APPPM). It focuses on the theme of “Drug delivery systems: advanced technologies potentially applicable in personalised treatments”. The critical topics involving the development and preparation of effective drug delivery systems, such as: polymers available, self-assembly, nanotechnology, pharmaceutical formulations, three dimensional structures, molecular modeling, tailor-made solutions and technological tendencies, are carefully discussed. The understanding of these areas constitutes a paramount route to establish personalised and effective solutions for specific diseases and individuals.
