Special Issue "Veterinary Medicine"
A special issue of Pharmaceutics (ISSN 1999-4923).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2017)
Drug delivery to animals for prevention and treatment of disease, fertility modulation, as well as pest control, is a fascinating field of research that benefits from an inter-disciplinary approach. The aim in compiling this Special Issue of Pharmaceutics on the topic of “Veterinary Medicine” is to draw together experts with knowledge of animal species from diverse fields including physiology, pharmacology and pharmaceutical science and zoology, who are engaged in contemporary research to solve the challenges of drug delivery to animals. A prerequisite for the development of dosage forms for animals is to characterize relevant aspects of the ecology and physiology of the target species in question. Often novel approaches are required to meet the unique needs of the animal population. Submissions (original papers and reviews) that contribute to understanding and applications of relevance for delivery of therapeutics to animals and animal health are welcomed for this Special Issue.
