Mucosal Delivery of Biopharmaceuticals Summary

Mucosal Delivery of Biopharmaceuticals: Biology, Challenges and Strategies by Jose das Neves

Biopharmaceutical medicines, the newest class of therapeutics, are quite heterogeneous and include a range of molecules such as proteins, peptides, vaccines and nucleic acids, with use in virtually all therapeutic fields (e.g. cancer and infectious diseases, vaccination, metabolic dysfunctions) and diagnostics. This edited book gives a concise and up-to-date overview of the biological features justifying the use of different human mucosa as delivery routes for biopharmaceuticals, the technological strategies that have been followed so far regarding the optimization of mucosal potentialities as well as the challenges that arise with the advent of new biopharmaceutical drugs and alternative means of administration. Following a brief introduction, the first section addresses general aspects of the biology of mucosal tissues and their unique aspects toward beneficial or deleterious interaction with biopharmaceuticals and their delivery systems. The second part reviews the different delivery strategies that have recently been investigated for different mucosal sites. The third section describes the development and clinical applications of drug delivery systems and products enclosing biopharmaceuticals for mucosal delivery, with a focus on the most successful case studies of recent years. The last section briefly centers on relevant aspects of the regulatory, toxicological and market issues of mucosal delivery of biopharmaceuticals. Scientists and researchers in the fields of drug delivery, material science, biomedical science and bioengineering as well as professionals, regulators and policy makers in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and healthcare industries will find in this book an important compendium of fundamental concepts and practical tools for their daily research and activities.

About Jose das Neves

Jose das Neves is a researcher at Instituto Superior de Ciencias da Saude-Norte, CESPU, Gandra, and in the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Porto, Portugal, where he earned a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences. His previous work has spanned multiple aspects of the development of vaginal drug delivery systems, and his current research interests include the development of nanotechnology-based solutions for the development of anti-HIV microbicides and mucosal delivery of biopharmaceuticals.

Bruno Sarmento is an affiliated researcher at INEB - Instituto de Engenharia Biomedica, University of Porto, Portugal. He is also an assistant professor of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical technology at Instituto Superior de Ciencias da Saude-Norte, CESPU, Gandra, Portugal. He earned a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Technology at the University of Porto. He has extensive work in the development of nanocarriers for the oral delivery of biopharmaceuticals-namely insulin-and the establishment of novel in vitro intestinal permeability models. His current research focuses on nanomedicines and their applications in the pharmaceutical and biomedical fields.
