Abstract:

The object of this symposium is to provide overviews of and detailed insights into the function, generation, delivery and evaluation of pharmaceutical aerosols. Invited speakers will present extended reviews of selected topics that include background information and authoritative state-of- the-art summaries. Other authors of talks and posters will address specific topics in narrow scope and greater detail. Topics will include a multi disciplinary analysis of drug delivery via aerosols, applications of pharmaceutical aerosols, drug delivery and site selection, diagnostic aerosols, aerosol delivery systems, non-CFC propellants metering and dispersion of dry powder aerosols, prediction of respiratory deposition from in vitro and in vitro measurements, modeling of gas flow and aerosol deposition in the respiratory tract, modeling of lung geometry and aerosol deposition in the respiratory tract, modeling of the lung geometry and aerosol deposition in the alveolar region, clinical applications and comparisons of aerosol therapies, and future challenges in the uses of pharmaceutical aerosols.
