Controlled drug delivery technology bridges the advances in medicine and genomics to the development of effective and innovative therapeutic products. This volume will examine recent research in this field and present the key findings. Advances in Controlled Drug Delivery will focus on the drug delivery of large molecules such as DNA and protein drugs. Novel technologies presented in the volume will include: application of electroporation to deliver naked DNA, novel oral delivery technologies, pulmonary delivery of protein drugs, delivery in the buccal mucosa, and novel approaches in target delivery to the brain using peptide vectors. In addition, the book will discuss the development of novel materials and sensors to enable the delivery of large molecules.
