Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

After the fruitful execution of first and second editions of the Global Conference on Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery Systems in the years 2017 and 2018, it is with great pride and honour that Magnus Group announces its “3rd Edition of the Global Conference on Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery Systems (PDDS 2019)”, which is going to be held in Paris, France from 24–26 June, 2019.

PDDS 2019 will serve as a podium for the interaction between experts in the areas of pharmaceutics, drug delivery, nanomedicine, biotechnology, and nanotechnology around the world and aims at sharing unique research and translational studies on various advances in the related fields. The will conference open its doors for many researchers in academia, clinicians, and industry representatives working in these exciting areas. It expects to bring together both reputable scientists in advanced stages of their career and young researchers from many related disciplines. The conference expects many new ideas to emerge at the interfaces between disciplines, aiming to solve the most important problems relating to the health and wellbeing of humanity.

The present Special Issue will feature the works presented at PDDS 2019. Authors with expertise on any topic of pharmaceutics and drug delivery systems are cordially invited to submit their manuscripts to this Special Issue of Pharmaceutics. Significant full papers and review articles are very welcome. The topics of the conference will cover various aspects of pharmaceutics.

More information about the conference can be found at https://pharmaceuticsconference.com/

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Pharmaceutics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Alopecia, characterized by hair follicle blockage and hair loss, disrupts the normal cycle of hair growth. Although not a life-threatening condition, a growing body of evidence suggests that the psychological state of individuals experiencing alopecia can be highly influenced. Despite considerable research on hair loss treatment, interest in micro-pigmentation has increased in recent decades. Micropigmentation is an effective method to camouflage the visual contrast between the scalp and hair strands. However, the localization, intensity and dimension of microdots depend highly upon the physician performing the implantation. Incorrectly localized microdots within the skin may lead to patchy or faded micropigmentation. To overcome the limitations of conventional micro-pigmentation, we aimed to develop micro-pigment-encapsulated biodegradable microneedles (PBMs), capable of accurately implanting pigments below the epithelial-dermal junction of the scalp in a minimally invasive manner. A tissue interlocking microneedle technique was utilized to fabricate double-layered PBMs over a biodegradable flexible sheet, which could be washed off post-implantation. We confirmed that the intensity, dimension and insertion depth of 1,000 μm-long PBMs was maintained on pig cadaver skin over time. This study suggested that the developed PBMs would serve as an attractive platform for scalp micro-pigmentation in the future. Full article
