Industry Reviews

"From the foreword This book meets a need at all levels of the Pharmaceutical Industry from undergraduate student through senior management, including regulators and regulatory scientists....This book provides a pragmatic overview of the excipient and excipient safety in pharmaceuticals. My thanks to the contributors for a very needed and valuable book. "-Louis Blecher, Chairman, The International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council Arlington, Virginia ...full of useful information and...thoroughly recommend[ed]. - British Toxicology Society Newsletter Because safety and toxicity questions are of primary concern to those seeking to promote the development of new excipients, those workers will find this volume to be a valuable source of summarized information. The book is also highly recommended to all formulators seeking to use the high-technology excipients in new formations, since they will need to know the expeditious routes to regulatory approval. -Pharmaceutical Development and Technology, 2001
