Overview

Long established as a core text for pharmaceutics courses, this book is the most comprehensive source on pharmaceutical dosage forms and drug delivery systems. Content coincides with the CAPE, APhA, and NAPLEX® competencies.

This edition includes updated drug information and has an increased focus on physical pharmacy. Coverage incorporates all new dosage forms on the market as well as those in the current US Pharmacopoeia-National Formulary. Updated photos are included. An "Applying the Principles and Concepts" section at the end of each chapter provides activities for the application of the material.

A companion website includes the fully searchable text and a quiz bank with more than 200 questions written in NAPLEX® format.

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Joseph Boullata, PharmD (University of Pennsylvania College of Nursing)
Description: The ninth edition of this classic book, coming five years after its predecessor, does not disappoint as it provides a complete discussion of pharmaceutical dosage forms with integration of biopharmaceutics and other practical applications.
Purpose: It is a comprehensive introduction to an area of pharmaceutics that will be most relevant to pharmacists' practice.
Audience: Because the book is written for pharmacy students, it includes a number of broad introductory concepts in pharmacy as well as the area of focus — pharmaceutical dosage forms and drug delivery systems. With its detailed discussion of dosage forms, it remains a useful resource for pharmacists in practice as well.
Features: Many portions of this book have been rewritten or revised while maintaining the overall structure of the previous edition. The 20 chapters are grouped into eight sections representing parts of a typical applied pharmaceutics course. Some unique chapter features that students may appreciate are the "physical pharmacy capsules" which highlight critical pharmaceutical principles, and the case studies to help provide context and discuss reasonably current clinical implications of dosage forms. New to this edition: each chapter starts with a list of learning objectives and ends with a list of suggested group and individual activities to help apply the principles and concepts. Three appendixes provide glossaries of terms related to drug categories, pharmaceutical terms and dosage forms, and descriptions of pharmaceutical measurement. The detailed 22-page index is valuable when using the book as a reference source. The numerous figures - well over 250 - plus tables are invaluable to the presentation for students. A thorough discussion of current good manufacturing practices and current good compounding practices, along with the regulatory perspective on manufacturing and compounding, are welcome in this book. Unfortunately, the pharmaceutical discussions of parenteral nutrition and enteral nutrition are unexpectedly brief. Furthermore, the discussion of routes of administration neglected to include administration of medication through feeding tubes and its implications.
Assessment: This book is not intended to be a comprehensive pharmaceutics reference like several other well-recognized books (e.g., Aulton's Pharmaceutics: The Design and Manufacture of Medicines , 3rd edition, Aulton (Elsevier, 2007) , Martin's Physical Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences , 6th edition, Sinko (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006) , Remington: The Science and Practice of Pharmacy , 21st edition, Hendrickson (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005) , or the two volumes of Modern Pharmaceutics , 5th edition, Florence et al. (informa Healthcare, 2009). However, it is more than adequate as the book that specifically introduces pharmacy students to the dosage forms and delivery systems for pharmaceuticals.
