Research and Markets has included a new book titled ‘Dendrimer-Based Drug Delivery Systems. From Theory to Practice’ to its catalogue.

John Wiley and Sons’ new book covers the formulation and delivery of dendrimers. It starts with a comprehensive introduction and provides reference to practical applications. The analysis covers dendritic drug delivery solutions ranging from cellular absorption of dendritic nanoparticles to dendrimers chemistry.

The book discusses the unique application of dendrimers in biologic and drug delivery. It also covers the versatility of dendrimers in addressing development challenges in a variety of drugs. The book is helpful to pharmaceutical and associated researchers to understand and use dendrimers because it analyzes the problems and unique opportunities associated with the use of this drug carrier for enhancing drug delivery.

Key topics covered in the book include Dendrimer Chemistry: Supramolecular Perspectives and Applications; Physicochemical Properties of Dendrimers and Dendrimer Complexes; The Use of Dendrimers to Optimize the Physicochemical and Therapeutic Properties of Drugs; Biological Properties of Phosphorus Dendrimers; Dendrimer-Based Prodrugs: Synthesis and Biological Evaluation; Improving the Biocompatibility of Dendrimers in Drug Delivery; Degradable Dendrimers for Drug Delivery; Design of Stimuli-Responsive Dendrimers for Biomedical Purposes; Dendrimer-Based Gene Delivery Systems: Administration Routes and In Vivo Evaluation; Triazine Dendrimers for DNA and siRNA Delivery: Progress, Challenges, and Opportunities; Dendrimer-Coated Carbohydrate Residues as Drug Delivery Trojan Horses in Glycoscience; Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Techniques in the Analysis of Pamam Dendrimer-Based Drug Delivery Systems; Dendrimer-Based Medical Nanodevices for Magnetic Resonance Imaging Applications; and Dendrimer-Related Nanoparticle System for Computed Tomography Imaging.
