This work introduces technologies for overcoming barriers to delivery of therapeutic peptides, proteins, vaccines, and nucleic acid-based drugs. Many of the approaches described are reported in formulations in current clinical trials as well as in marketed products. Material is in sections on general aspects of delivery, delivery technologies for biopharmaceuticals, and methods for peptides and proteins, nucleic acids, and vaccines. Some specific topics covered include chemical vectors for delivery of nucleic acid-based drugs, lipid nanoparticle-based systems for delivery of biomacromolecule therapeutics, nanocarriers for the delivery of peptides and proteins, pulmonary delivery of small interfering RNA for novel therapeutics, and influenza virosomes as delivery systems for antigens. The editors are on the faculty of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen. The book is for researchers and students working in drug delivery, formulation, biopharmaceuticals, medicinal chemistry, and new materials development.
