This is an essential resource for all those involved in the formulation, development, manufacture and testing of suppositories.The administration of drugs using a suppository base formulation is particularly useful in paediatrics, debilitated patients and 'non-oral' patients. Depending on the excipient used, it is possible to control the release of the active pharmaceutical ingredient, thus offering some advantages in specific drug regimens over other dosage forms.Many suppository formulations have been developed for a number of therapeutic aims, however comprehensive reliable information on suppository formulation is not always readily available. "Suppositories" resolves this situation by providing up-to-date, comprehensive information in one point of reference." Suppositories" provides a detailed review of suppository dosage forms with chapters covering: the history and development of the suppository; suppository bases and their characteristics; pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and pharmacokinetic factors; formulation considerations; manufacturing and compounding suppositories; special types of suppositories; quality control; packaging and labelling; stability and storage; and clinical considerations.This book is an essential resource for all those involved in the formulation, development, manufacture and testing of suppositories.
