Manuscript Topics
A large number of diseases and medical conditions in humans and animals are amenable to treatment with pharmaceutical drugs. While the search for more efficient and targeted drugs continues, there is also the desire to improve the therapeutic outcome for drugs that in many cases have been available for decades and longer. Pharmaceutical scientists and clinicians are pursuing a number of goals, such as the controlled release of a drug over a long period of time or the targeted delivery of a drug to a specific site in a patient's body. Mathematical modeling has begun to play an increasingly important role in understanding the mechanisms behind experimental release profiles and in developing novel delivery systems. In this special issue of Mathematical Biosciences and Engineering we will collect high-quality interdisciplinary collaborations between pharmaceutical scientists, mathematicians, chemical and biomedical engineers and others. We will in particular solicit contributions that combine experimental observations with mathematical modeling and computational simulations.
