Text Book of Pharmaceutics (ER2020-11T)
Pharmaceutics is a core subject in D. Pharm, which is taught in the initial semesters. It is the branch of pharmacy that deals with the process of converting a novel chemical entity (NCE) or an existing medicine into a medication that patients may use safely and efficiently. It’s also known as dosage form design science where a student learns various techniques of developing a formulation. Many compounds have pharmacological characteristics, but many require specific handling to obtain therapeutically relevant concentrations at their areas of action. Pharmaceutics aids in the connection between medication formulation, distribution and disposal in the body.
