9780702042904: 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.

Review:

From customer reviews of the previous edition

‘For all the pharmacy students out there part of your pharmacy degree will be to study formulation design and pharmaceutics. This is the holy grail of pharmaceutical technology books. The text reads well and introduces difficult concepts in a more easy-to-understand way. It is definitely worth the money to help you get through the module, If you are doing a research project in pharmaceutical design then this would also be an excellent buy.’

‘In my pharmacy degree I have to do a Physiochemical Principles of Pharmacy module which is about drug forms/dosage etc. and this book really helps and is really well laid out and easy to understand. Definitely a book I would recommend to any pharmacy student and my lecturer says it's a book needed for nearly the whole degree so means it’s not another book you'll use once and then wonder why you spent so much on it.’

‘This book is on most reading lists for a UK Pharmacy Degree (MPharm). It is great for the Pharmaceutics aspect of the course. It is easy to read, with good diagrams and pictures to help explain concepts well. It is probably one of the easiest reads for Pharmaceutics textbooks. It is also helpful when writing lab reports and assignments and is a good reference source.’

‘This book has been a great help to me. I have found it very useful for pharmacy.’
