The concept of Focal Drug Delivery has been applied for treating illnesses that are localized to a certain tissue or organ. These delivery systems are applied directly to the diseased site and deliver a desired dose for an extended time period while minimizing systemic distribution of toxic drug. Despite the upsurge of interest in focal targeted drug delivery, there is currently no single reference text on this subject. Thus, the aim of the proposed book “Focal Controlled Drug Delivery” is to bring together leading experts and researchers in this field to provide an authoritative account of the essential pharmaceutical, technological, physiological and biological sciences underpinning the topic. This book contains two sections- first section includes fundamental introductory chapters for focal drug delivery whereas, second section includes chapters describing drug delivery to body sites/system. The book allows clinical, pharmaceutical and biological scientists to offer their own perspectives on the subject, making it of potential interest to a wider audience than just drug delivery scientists.
