Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patrick J McDonnell, Pharm.D.(Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: This is the seventh edition of a reference on the nonpharmacologically active components of drugs with monographs that demonstrate specific characteristics of each excipient. The previous edition was published in 2009.
Purpose: Although much attention is focused on the active component of drugs, it's important to remember that excipients used for delivery and administration are also components of these medications. These excipients, which have unique characteristics both for the formulation and stability of the product, also can affect patients. This is a thorough reference on these drug excipients.
Audience: The book certainly is useful for an array of professionals, including those in the drug industry, pharmaceutics, and drug design. As a pharmacist and a pharmacy educator who focuses on medication safety, I was intrigued by the safety information in the monographs. Students and others researching this topic will find this a very useful reference. A multiauthored book, it is written and reviewed by those working primarily in pharmaceutics and drug design.
Features: This edition covers 380 drug excipient monographs, which are arranged alphabetically. For each recipient, readers are able to reference nonproprietary names, chemical names and empiric chemical formulas, functional categories, applications in pharmaceutical formulations, chemical properties, stability and storage information, incompatibilities, safety and handling precautions, and other qualities and properties. Specific and general references for each product also are listed. Several appendixes provide a suppliers directory, detail excipient functional categories, and list related substances.
Assessment: This is certainly one of the most useful, complete, and concise references in this area. The authors and editors are committed to keep the information up to date, justifying this new edition.
