Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms - Parenteral Medications: Formulation and Packaging

This three-volume set of Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms: Parenteral Medications is an authoritative, comprehensive reference work on the formulation and manufacture of parenteral dosage forms, effectively balancing theoretical considerations with the practical aspects of their development. As such, it is recommended for scientists and engineers in the pharmaceutical industry and academia, and will also serve as an excellent reference and training tool for regulatory scientists and quality assurance professionals. First published in 1984 (as two volumes) and then last revised in 1993 (when it grew to three volumes), this latest revision will address the plethora of changes in the science and considerable advances in the technology associated with these products and routes of administration. The third edition of this book maintains the features that made the last edition so popular but comprises several brand new chapters, revisions to all other chapters, as well as high quality illustrations. Volume one presents: A historical perspective of injectable drug therapy, common routes of administration, and biopharmaceutics of NCEs and NBEs. An in-depth discussion on the preformulation and formulation of small and large molecules, including ophthalmic dosage forms. A presentation of parenteral primary packaging options - glass and plastic containers, as well as elastomeric closures. A definitive chapter on container-closure integrity. New chapters on solubility and solubilization, formulation of depot delivery systems and biophysical/biochemical characterization of proteins.
