The Ophthalmic Drug Delivery section in Frontiers in Drug Delivery publishes high-quality reports on basic, translational and clinical research across the field of Ophthalmic Drug Delivery. Drug delivery is an integral part of any therapeutic strategy in the field of ophthalmology and this transdisciplinary domain solicits significant advances in areas including, but not limited to:
Fundamental knowledge and advances in ocular barriers structure and functions
Fundamental knowledge and advances in molecular ocular transport mechanisms in health and disease states
Ocular pharmacokinetics in relevant models and in humans
Routes of administration for targeted delivery
Modelization of ocular pharmacokinetics
Toxicology methods development
Polymer technologies applied to ocular requirements
Particular systems, implants, nanocarriers, reservoirs
Gene and RNA-based therapies delivery by any method
Protein delivery and production for ocular diseases
Physical methods to enhance ocular delivery of drug such as electrical current, ultrasounds, light… and combination technologies
Sustained release methods of small and large molecules
Translation to human eye and disease, including results from human studies are encouraged. We do not encourage publications limited to theoretical ophthalmic application of delivery systems or in vitro studies not relevant for human applications.
