Focusing on a completely new class of pharmaceuticals, this book collates the hitherto scarce literature on DNA drug formulation much desired by biotechnologists, molecular biologists and pharmacists, as well as those working in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industries.
With its focus on a completely novel class of pharmaceuticals, this book collates the hitherto scarce literature about DNA drug formulation keenly desired by biotechnologists, molecular biologists and pharmacists, as well as those working in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industries.
As such, this volume presents a wide range of gene delivery systems needed for different therapeutic applications. It fills the gap between research and clinical trials and describes pharmaceutical fundamentals for the development of efficient DNA pharmaceuticals.
