While novel biotechnology-based pharmaceutical products and therapies often require enhancement to facilitate bioavailability, more efficient administration of conventional drugs may also necessitate enhancement. Touitou (pharmaceutical sciences, Hebrew U. of Jerusalem) and Barry (pharmaceutical technology, U. of Bradford, UK) integrate widely-scattered sources on the latest trends in drug design, development, and testing. After an overview of the major routes of drug delivery and the barriers encountered, they treat the biopharmaceutics of alternative absorption pathways. International contributors to 28 chapters consider the most widely investigated promising enhancement approaches including chemical enhancers for nasal, corneal, and vaginal delivery; electrically-assisted methods; liposmes combined with electrical potentiation; vesicular carriers; and strategies for by-passing the skin and the blood-brain barrier.
