Topical and Transdermal Drug Delivery: Principles and Practice


Practical drug development approaches presented by leading experts

Designed to support the development of new, effective therapeutics, Topical and Transdermal Drug Delivery: Principles and Practice explains the principles underlying the field and then demonstrates how these principles are put into practice in the design and development of new drug products. Drawing together and reviewing the latest research findings, the book focuses on practical, tested, and proven approaches that are backed by industry case studies and the authors’ firsthand experience. Moreover, the book emphasizes the mechanistic information that is essential for successful drug product development.

Topical and Transdermal Drug Delivery: Principles and Practice is divided into two parts:

  • Part One, Current Science, Skin Permeation, and Enhancement Approaches, offers readers a fundamental understanding of the underlying science in the field. It describes the principles and techniques needed to successfully perform experimental approaches, covering such issues as skin permeation, enhancement, and assessment.

  • Part Two, Topical and Transdermal Product Development, guides readers through the complete product development process from concept to approval, offering practical tips and cautions from experts in the field. This part also discusses regulations that are specific to the development of dermal drug products. The final chapter explores current and future trends, forecasting new development techniques and therapeutics.

Throughout the book, the authors clearly set forth the basic science and experimental procedures, making it possible for researchers to design their own experimental approaches and accurately interpret their results.

With contributions from experienced drug researchers, this text is highly recommended for all researchers involved in topical and transdermal product development who need to know both the state of the science and the standards of practice.

Fast Facts: Acne


By (author): Alison M. Layton, Diane Thiboutot, Vincenzo Bettoli

Acne is one of the ten most common diseases worldwide and is the inflammatory skin disease seen most frequently by community physicians and dermatologists. Over the last decade, knowledge of acne pathophysiology and etiologic factors has expanded, resulting in the development of novel treatments that target clinical lesions and improve patient outcomes. However, the vast number of therapeutic options that are now available can pose a challenge to the prescribing clinician selecting the preferred treatment. Fast Facts: Acne is primarily aimed at family practitioners, nurse prescribers, pharmacists and dermatology trainees. This fully updated edition provides a concise overview of the clinical features of acne, reviews available treatments – including their respective modes of action and potential adverse events – and advises on treatment selection with the implicit goal of minimizing the physical and emotional scarring associated with this challenging disease. It also discusses the use of antibiotics and, given current concerns regarding overprescribing and antibiotic resistance, this highly readable resource is a timely addition to the Fast Facts series.

Dermatologic Principles and Practice in Oncology: Conditions of the Skin, Hair, and Nails in Cancer Patients


By (author): Mario E. Lacouture

The first book focusing specifically on frequent and frequently disabling side effects involving the skin, hair and nails in cancer patients

According to the World Health Organization, there are approximately thirty million people living with a diagnosis of cancer – the majority of whom will receive surgery, systemic therapy, and/or radiation, and who will suffer from dermatologic adverse events. Dermatologists and oncologists are only beginning to grapple with these events, which pose serious quality-of-life issues with so many patients, and will become more prevalent as survival rates improve, thanks in part to new cancer treatments and drug regimens.

Concentrating on a topic that has only been briefly touched upon by other texts, this book offers a focused perspective on the clinical presentation, underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms, and management of skin, hair, and nail conditions for oncologists, dermatologists, and allied practitioners.
Dermatologic Principles and Practice in Oncology: Conditions of the Skin, Hair, and Nails in Cancer Patients:

• Covers in detail the dermatologic adverse events of oncologic therapies, clinical presentations, and treatment recommendations

• Enables dermatologists and other practitioners to significantly improve the care of patients with cancer
• Addresses the dermatologic adverse events of cancer therapies used globally, of which a large number are found in developing countries

• Emphasizes prophylactic measures – based on treatments used and type of cancer – to prevent the appearance of adverse events

• Provides built-in discussions on patient education for practical counseling during therapies

• Offers rapid-reference sections on topical dermatology drugs

The first book to present dermatologic conditions in cancer patients and survivors in a uniform and in-depth manner, Dermatologic Principles and Practice in Oncology is ideal for oncologists, oncology nurses, and dermatologists who wish to take better care of those with adverse skin, hair, and nail conditions.

Original Skin: Exploring the Marvels of the Human Hide


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Maryrose Cuskelly

?Like the air we breathe, we take our skin for granted . . . Yet it is remarkable; it mitigates and ameliorates the sometimes harsh world we dwell in, and is at the interface of so much of what we encounter. It is our border, the edge of ourselves, the point where we meet our universe.”

Original Skin is at times a scientific study, remarking on the biological magic behind the human body’s largest organ. At others it becomes an anthropological survey, dissecting separate societies’ attitudes towards bare bodies, and the motives behind cultural rituals such as tattoos. However, Original Skin is, above all, a celebration of the human body; its tone one of absolute awe for the simultaneously protective and fragile membrane that divides us all from the world that surrounds us. Maryrose Cuskelly’s book?in its examinations of everything from tickling to Botox to books bound in human derma?is a delightful meditation on skin.
