Summary
Extensively updated to reflect the outpouring of research in the field, this Second Edition documents the theory and practical utilization of aerosols in inhalation therapy and tracks advances in aerosol formulation, development, and application. Supplying readers with studies on physiology, metabolism, and pharmacokinetics for a clear understanding of the therapeutic impact of lung aerosols, this guide analyzes inhalation technologies for a vast array of diseases including asthma, cystic fibrosis, COPD, pulmonary infectious diseases, and diabetes
