This book provides an insight into state-of-art developments in  pulmonary drug delivery systems. It comprises several chapters covering a  wide range of promising technologies and novel materials explored for  developing effective pulmonary drug delivery systems. The initial book  chapters elucidate role of thin film freezing, supercritical  fluid technology, nano-in-micro particles system, crystal-engineered  microstructures and porous particles in pulmonary drug delivery.  The subsequent book chapters elaborate on various functional excipients  such as chitosan, cyclodextrins, and Vitamin E-TPGS to attain local and  systemic therapeutic action. There are book chapters focused on diverse  novel carrier systems such as hydrogels, quantum dots, metal-organic  framework, and prodrug approach. Additionally, book also contains  chapters, exclusively dedicated to biologicals and numerical simulation  in pulmonary therapeutics.

The book chapters follow a sequential  order, beginning with the pulmonary relevance of technology or polymeric  materials, carrier synthesis schemes, current technical state-of-art,  along with clinical, industrial, and regulatory aspects. Each chapter  contains a future perspective section that will systematically reflect  the current state of advances in pulmonary drug delivery. It also offers  a practical basis for audience to understand the design and function of  the delivery systems for better therapeutic outcomes. The book provides  balanced views by considering the investigations from various  scientific domains and industrial knowledge.

 Briefly, this  book aims to collect, analyse, and bring together the latest  developments in pulmonary drug delivery with more focus on materials and  technologies. Indeed, this book is a valuable source for readers and  researchers who wish to learn more about the advances in pulmonary drug  delivery systems.
