Long established as a core text for pharmaceutics courses, this book is the most comprehensive source on pharmaceutical dosage forms and drug delivery systems. Each chapter in this revised Eighth Edition includes two case studies—one clinical and one pharmaceutical. Content coincides with the CAPE, APhA, and NAPLEX competencies. This edition includes updated drug information and expanded sections on parenterals, excipients, liposomes, and biopharmaceutics. Coverage incorporates all new dosage forms in the current USP Pharmacopoeia-National Formulary. Capsules and tablets are now covered in separate chapters. The thoroughly revamped illustration program includes new product and manufacturing equipment photographs.
