Therapeutic Delivery Solutions presents a comprehensive review of the full range of potential medical therapeutic development solutions. The book discusses three therapeutic delivery platforms (Conventional Therapeutic Delivery System, Medical Device Therapeutic Delivery System, and Cellular Therapeutic Delivery) and their associated regulatory requirements. There is currently no other resource examining these three areas in one textbook. It allows development scientists, engineers and medical professionals more options to develop a therapeutic agent to its fullest potential and creates better and more creative therapeutic solutions.The book is divided into 5 sections. Section 1 describes the regulatory requirements and issues encountered in pharmaceutical and medical device submissions. Section 2 gives a detail treatment of traditional and latest innovations in oral drug product development. Section 3 outlines current trends and strategies of combination medical devices therapy development including bone graft delivery systems, pulmonary delivery systems, and powder inhalation technology. Section 4 introduces the reader to the latest advances and innovations in cellular and stem cell therapeutic delivery such as cancer cell therapeutic delivery and stem cell therapeutic delivery. Section 5 provides information on how the developments in sections 1–4 are supported.
