This science is the basis for design and manufacture of delivery systems with predictable behaviours. Bioactive materials such as drugs, vaccine antigens, pesticides and nutrients cannot be administered in pure form, but must be incorporated into biocompatible formulations which maintain the stability of the active ingredients and deliver it in a way suitable to achieving optimal beneficial effects with minimal adverse effects. Thus, the science of formulation and drug delivery has human, veterinary and agricultural applications.
It combines physical chemistry, biology and materials science to investigate physico-chemical properties of active ingredients, excipients and formulations, and behaviours of ingredients and formulations in the biological environment in order to develop an underpinning science.
