Nasal drug administration offers a wide range of therapeutic options including local and systemic drug delivery, brain targeted therapy and mucosal vaccination. However, its potential has yet to be fully exploited. Widening the palette of nasally administered drugs requires development of innovative drug formulations enhancing drug availability at the action site. Namely, formulation strategy is the key response to drug solubility, permeation and stability issues as well as mucoadhesive performance. Another key aspect is consideration of efficient drug deposition in specific nasal regions of interest, which is a prerequisite for effective nasal therapy.
This special issue aims to highlight the latest strategies and innovations in development and administration of nasal drug delivery systems. We are pleased to invite you to submit your original research articles or reviews within this subject area. Research topics may include (but not limited to) the following: Development of innovative liquid and powder nasal drug delivery systems; Nanotechnology in nasal drug delivery; In vitro/ex vivo/in vivo characterization methods in nasal formulation development; Nasal deposition studies.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Prof. Dr. Anita Hafner
