A Textbook of Novel Drug Delivery System

The titled book, “A textbook of Novel Drug Delivery System” (As per PCI regulation). The idea of book originated by authors to convey a combined database for easy understanding of novel drug delivery systems.
This book is intended to communicate information on novel drug delivery techniques, to direct tutors and learners regarding fundamental concepts in drug delivery systems.
The major aim to write this textbook is to provide information in articulate summarized manner to accomplish necessities of undergraduates as per PCI regulation. This volume is designed not only according to curriculum of undergraduate courses in pharmacy by PCI but also to communicate knowledge on novel drug delivery systems for post graduate learners. We assured this book will be originate very valuable by graduates, post graduates, professors and industrial learners.
