Drug Delivery for the Retina & Posterior Segment Disease

“Drug delivery systems are in the forefront of research,” starts the foreword of this 500-page research compilation. Drug Delivery for the Retina & Posterior Segment Disease assembles and analyses recent advances in the research and development of these delivery systems, with an emphasis on implantable devices, iontophoresis and micro- and nanoparticles.
This is a highly detailed text. The average chapters have between 50 and 100 references to recent publications. “Penetration Routes to Retina and Posterior Segment” provides a nifty introduction to the possibilities, while chapters on liposomes, colloidal carrier systems, lipid prodrugs and thermoresponsive gel systems open a new world of possibilities. This text is intended for researchers working on drug delivery routes and systems for the posterior segment and retina. Retinal specialists interested in keeping abreast of recent developments might also consider keeping this book handy as a reference work.
