In recent years, there has been an explosion of interest in the production of nanoscale fibers for drug delivery and tissue engineering. Nanofibres in Drug Delivery aims to outline to new researchers in the field the utility of nanofibers in drug delivery, and to explain to them how to prepare fibers in the laboratory. The book begins with a brief discussion of the main concepts in pharmaceutical science. The authors then introduce the key techniques that can be used for fiber production and explain briefly the theory behind them. They discuss the experimental implementation of fiber production, starting with the simplest possible set-up and then moving on to consider more complex arrangements. As they do so, they offer advice from their own experience of fiber production, and use examples from current literature to show how each particular type of fibers can be applied to drug delivery. They also consider how fiber production could be moved beyond the research laboratory into industry, discussing regulatory and scale-up aspects.
