Practical Pharmaceutics contains essential knowledge on the preparation,  quality control, logistics, dispensing and use of medicines. It  features chapters written by experienced pharmacists and scientists  working in hospitals, academia and industry throughout Europe, including  practical examples as well as information on current GMP and GMP-based  guidelines and EU-legislation. In this second edition all chapters have  been updated with numerous new as well as didactically revised  illustrations and tables. A completely new chapter about therapeutic  proteins and Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products was added.

From  prescription to production, from usage instructions to procurement and  the impact of medicines on the environment, the book provides  step-by-step coverage that will help a wide range of readers, students  as well as professionals. It offers product knowledge for all  pharmacists working directly with patients and it will enable them to  make the required medicine available, to store medicines properly, to  adapt medicines if necessary and to dispense medicines with the  appropriate information for patients as well as caregivers about product  care and how to maintain the quality of the product. The basic  knowledge presented in the book will also be valuable for industrial  pharmacists to remind and focus them on the application of the medicines  manufactured.

The basic and practical knowledge on the design,  preparation and quality management of medicines can directly be applied  by the pharmacists whose main duty is production in community and  hospital pharmacies and in industry. Undergraduate as well as graduate  pharmacy students will find knowledge presented in a coherent way and  fully supported with relevant examples.

Practical Pharmaceutics  has become a reliable and recognised source for the acquisition of  pharmaceutical-technological knowledge. The book is used in the  curriculum of a number of international universities and schools of  Pharmacy.
