Aulton’s Pharmaceutics: The Design and Manufacture of Medicines, 4e

Pharmaceutics is one of the most diverse subject areas in all of pharmaceutical science. In brief, it is concerned with the scientific and technological aspects of the design and manufacture of dosage forms or medicines. An understanding of pharmaceutics is therefore vital for all pharmacists and those pharmaceutical scientists who are involved with converting a drug or a potential drug into a medicine that can be delivered safely, effectively and conveniently to the patient.

Now in its fourth edition, this best-selling textbook in pharmaceutics has been brought completely up to date to reflect the rapid advances in delivery methodologies by eye and injection, advances in drug formulations and delivery methods for special groups (such as children and the elderly), nanomedicine, and pharmacognosy. At the same time the editors have striven to maintain the accessibility of the text for students of pharmacy, preserving the balance between being a suitably pitched introductory text and a clear reflection of the state of the art.

  • provides a logical, comprehensive account of drug design and manufacture
  • includes the science of formulation and drug delivery
  • designed and written for newcomers to the design of dosage forms

New to this edition

  • New editor: Kevin Taylor, Professor of Clinical Pharmaceutics, School of Pharmacy, University of London.
  • Twenty-two new contributors.
  • Six new chapters covering parenteral and ocular delivery; design and administration of medicines for the children and elderly; the latest in plant medicines; nanotechnology and nanomedicines, and the delivery of biopharmaceuticals.
  • Thoroughly revised and updated throughout.

Analytical Techniques in the Pharmaceutical Sciences (Advances in Delivery Science and Technology)

The aim of this book is to present a range of analytical methods that can be used in formulation design and development and focus on how these systems can be applied to understand formulation components and the dosage form these build. To effectively design and exploit drug delivery systems, the underlying characteristic of a dosage form must be understood–from the characteristics of the individual formulation components, to how they act and interact within the formulation, and finally, to how this formulation responds in different biological environments. To achieve this, there is a wide range of analytical techniques that can be adopted to understand and elucidate the mechanics of drug delivery and drug formulation. Such methods include e.g. spectroscopic analysis, diffractometric analysis, thermal investigations, surface analytical techniques, particle size analysis, rheological techniques, methods to characterize drug stability and release, and biological analysis in appropriate cell and animal models. Whilst each of these methods can encompass a full research area in their own right, formulation scientists must be able to effectively apply these methods to the delivery system they are considering. 
The information in this book is designed to support researchers in their ability to fully characterize and analyze a range of delivery systems, using an appropriate selection of analytical techniques. Due to its consideration of regulatory approval, this book will also be suitable for industrial researchers both at early stage up to pre-clinical research.

Pharmaceutical Microscopy

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Robert Allen Carlton

Microscopy plays an integral role in the research and development of new medicines. Pharmaceutical Microscopy describes a wide variety of  techniques together with numerous practical  applications of importance in drug development. The first section  presents general methods and applications with an emphasis on the physical science aspects. Techniques covered include optical crystallography, thermal microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry, microspectroscopy (infrared and Raman), and particle size and shape by image analysis. The second section presents applications of these techniques to specific topics of pharmaceutical interest, including studies of polymorphism, particle size and shape analysis, and contaminant identification.  Pharmaceutical Microscopy is designed for those scientists who must use these techniques to solve pharmaceutical problems but do not need to become expert microscopists.  Consequently, each section has exercises designed to teach the reader how to use and apply the techniques in the book.  Although the focus is on pharmaceutical development, workers in other fields such as food science and organic chemistry will also benefit from the discussion of techniques and the exercises.

  • Provides comprehensive coverage of key microscopy techniques used in pharmaceutical development
  • Helps the reader to solve specific problems in pharmaceutical quality assurance
  • Oriented and designed for pharmaceutical scientists who need to use microscopy but are not expert microscopists
  • Includes a large number of practical exercises to give the reader hands-on experience with the techniques
  • Written by an author with 21 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry

    Nature’s Pharmacopeia: A World of Medicinal Plants

    By (author): Dan Choffnes

    This beautifully illustrated, elegantly written textbook pairs the best research on the biochemical properties and physiological effects of medicinal plants with a fascinating history of their use throughout human civilization, revealing the influence of nature’s pharmacopeia on art, war, conquest, and law. By chronicling the ways in which humans have cultivated plant species, extracted their active chemical ingredients, and investigated their effects on the body over time, Nature’s Pharmacopeia also builds an unparalleled portrait of these special herbs as they transitioned from wild flora and botanical curiosities to commodities and potent drugs.

    The book opens with an overview of the use of medicinal plants in the traditional practices and indigenous belief systems of people in the Americas, Africa, Asia, and ancient Europe. It then connects medicinal plants to the growth of scientific medicine in the West. Subsequent chapters cover the regulation of drugs; the use of powerful plant chemicals?such as cocaine, nicotine, and caffeine?in various medical settings; and the application of biomedicine’s intellectual frameworks to the manufacture of novel drugs from ancient treatments. Geared toward nonspecialists, this text fosters a deep appreciation of the complex chemistry and cultural resonance of herbal medicine, while suggesting how we may further tap the vast repositories of the world’s herbal knowledge to create new pharmaceuticals.
