Developments in microelectronics, micromachining, and medical device design show great promise for creating electronically-assisted intelligent therapeutic systems for home use diagnostics and out-patient care. The costs of therapeutic development and distribution have been prohibitive, however, important strides are being made. Electronically Controlled Drug Delivery provides an overview of advances in drug delivery using electronics to regulate the delivery profile and optimize therapy.
Electronically Controlled Drug Delivery offers students, researchers, and industrial scientists current broad-ranged coverage of novel electronic drug delivery technologies. The therapeutic rationale, underlying principles, basics of critical technologies, and application to potential commercial products and novel technologies are all addressed in this state-of-the-art reference.
