Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Reaching the desired concentration of the active ingredient in a target area is a great challenge in the therapeutic field. In order to influence this process, we can choose from many different pharmaceutical technological formulations. However, find the optimal route of administration is also crucial for the drug delivery system. It is also a great challenge for the active agent to get through barrier systems in the body (like blood-brain- barrier, or skin).

This Special Issue, entitled "New Insights into Drug Delivery and Absorption”, collects publications regarding current developments in drug delivery systems according to the area of the administration of given active ingredients. This collection will help readers gain a knowledge of the field of drug delivery systems and the main delivery gates of the body, while also providing an overview of the field.
