This volume provides coverage of assisted transdermal and topical delivery by the mechanisms of iontophoresis, electro-osmosis and electroporation. The book starts by introducing the terminology and outlines the historical background. It then goes on to present a foundation of the theoretical concepts and mechanisms of iontophoresis and electroporation, followed by tips on the design of experimental systems for research in this area. This book provides a wealth of theoretical and practical information not easily found in any other single source.show more
