With the increased understanding of drug mechanisms and disease manifestations, escalated headway in clinical research, and breakthrough pharmaceutical technologies, an unparallel interest has been witnessed towards the realm of novel drug delivery systems. These drug delivery systems have been instrumental in bringing revolutionary changes in the treatment options and the health scenario across the globe. Likewise, the future is primed to unfold an epoch driven by a fusion of biotechnology and nanotechnology, as many drug products oriented on these cutting-edge technologies are already in the pipeline of approval by various key regulatory agencies. Accordingly, it has almost become mandatory for every health professional, pharmaceutical scientist, biotechnologist and nanotechnologist to have the requisite perception of various newer drug delivery systems. The current volume 8 of 12 volume series is a compilation of diverse novel approaches to strategically deliver the drugs to the desired site at the desired rate and concentration. The volume 8 involves discussion on the following topics: • Recent developments in drug delivery systems • Cyclodextrin nanoformulations as drug carriers for treatment of skin pathologies • Challenges and opportunities in pulmonary drug delivery • Targeted drug delivery for treatment of periodontal diseases • Sonoporation as a new approach to gene therapy • Janus particles for biomedical and drug delivery applications • Novel approaches for colon drug delivery • Ionic liquids as promising pharmaceutical carriers in drug delivery • Novel drug delivery vehicles for colloidal drug delivery • Carbon nanotubes and their drug delivery applications • Properties and applications of cell permeable peptides • Formulation, application and scientific validation of herbosomes • Development of implantable drug delivery systems • Micronized ethylcellulose for oral modified-release drug delivery systems • Chitosan-based drug delivery systems • Traditional foods as delivery vehicles for probiotics and nutraceuticals • Role of in vitro/in vivo correlation in product development and biowaivers of drug delivery systems • Recent developments in mouth dissolving tablets formulations and designs The volume 8 contains 18 chapters from 63 researchers and/or academicians representing 6 nations, namely India, Japan, Nigeria, Romania, Taiwan ROC and United States of America giving an overview of the various research activities being carried out in different parts of the world in the area of Novel Drug Delivery.
