Computer-Aided Drug Design and Delivery Systems

by: Ahindra Nag, Baishakhi Dey


Abstract: The latest breakthroughs in computer-aided drug design, drug delivery systems, and enabling technologies. Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD) and Delivery Systems offers an in-depth discussion of the computer-assisted techniques used to discover, design, and optimize new, effective, and safe drugs. Recent technological developments in biochemistry, biomedical science, and nanotechnology have made computer-aided drug design and delivery systems possible on a molecular basis. This in-depth treatise covers these pioneering advances. This text reviews all the enabling technologies such as bioinformatics, pharmacokinetics, biosensors, robotics, and bioinstrumentations. The progressive writing style allows you to establish solid fundamental knowledge of cell biology and utilization of the basics to applications such as drug delivery mechanisms and bioinstrumentations. Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD) and Delivery Systems features: Objective and quantitative data on the use of drugs in humans, Bioinformatics information with an emphasis computer-aided genome sequence modeling, Coverage of the latest pharmaceutical applications utilizing biochemical engineering, Practical examples of how recent advances in biochemistry are assisting new drug discovery and molecular-based drug delivery.
