"[A]n excellent addition to the library of any scientist interested in drug delivery systems. Unlike others in the area, this volume is focused on quantitative understanding of the principles that govern rates of drug transport, reaction, and disappearance in physiological conditions. ... even a scientist who may lack a background in mathematics could benefit from this unique discussion of engineering concepts. ... what makes this book outstanding is the ability of the author to discus mathematical equations grounded in real examples. ... The book is highly recommended as a textbook in the field of drug delivery ..."The Quarterly Review of Biology

Synthetic materials are a tremendous potential resource for treating human disease. For the rational design of many of these biomaterials it is necessary to have an understanding of polymer chemistry and polymer physics. Equally important to those two fields is a quantitative understanding of the principles that govern rates of drug transport, reaction, and disappearance in physiological and pathological situations. This book is a synthesis of these principles, providing a working foundation for those in the field of drug delivery. It covers advanced drug delivery and contemporary biomaterials.
