Inorganic biomaterials possess unique properties which traditionally make them ideal for use in medical implants; however, these same properties also bring advantages in drug delivery applications, such as bioactivity, controllable porosity and solubility, high mechanical strength and biocompatibility. Inorganic Biomaterials for Drug Delivery covers a wide range of inorganic biomaterial types and their properties, from traditional materials like ceramics, metallics, and bioglasses, to novel composites and nano-engineered inorganic biomaterials. Biocompatibility, toxicity and regulatory considerations are also thoroughly discussed, ensuring the reader is fully equipped for efficient biomaterials selection and utilization in drug delivery applications.

Inorganic Biomaterials for Drug Delivery is a must-have reference for those working in the fields of materials science, biomedical engineering, pharmaceutical science and pharmacology, chemical engineering and clinical science.
