Polymers play essential roles in the pharmaceutical field, thanks to their superior bio-pharmaceutical and chemical-physical properties. In recent years, the advanced therapeutic treatments and the spreading of biological therapeutics have further encouraged the development of pharmaceutical polymers, thus bringing more opportunities for efficacious vaccines, drug delivery systems, pharmaceutical dosage forms, and diagnostics.
Within this framework, this Special Issue (SI) is focused on the application of naturally derived, modified, or synthetic polymers as either the active component or delivery vehicle in the pharmaceutical field. The scope of this SI is to provide an expert panel with a primary emphasis on addressing the needs and interests of both academic and industrial readers.
