    The International Society for Aerosols in Medicine

    The ISAM Textbook

    The textbook provides comprehensive coverage of a broad range of topics related to aerosol science and clinical applications of aerosol therapy. The textbook has been written by content experts, and provides concise and up-to-date information on various topics of interest to aerosol scientists and clinicians. Dr. Rajiv Dhand, MD, the Editor-in-Chief, has been ably supported by 8 associate editors who are well known authorities in their respective fields. To allow crossover of readership between aerosol scientists and clinicians the book is primarily targeted to clinicians entering a Pulmonary fellowship program and graduate students starting a research career.

    The ISAM Textbook of Aerosol Medicine is an electronic book divided into four sections. Section 1 deals with aerosol deposition imaging, clearance, and assessment of inhaled products, Section 2 with aerosol devices, formulations, and particulates, Section 3 with clinical applications of aerosol therapy and adherence to inhaled drugs, and Section 4 addresses inhaled biotherapeutics, systemic therapy, limitations of aerosol therapy, regulatory issues with inhaled drugs, and nasal delivery of drugs. The book will be further expanded and updated in the future.
