  author={Hemal Tandel and Kiruba Florence and Ambikanandan Misra},
Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on protein and peptide delivery through the respiratory pathway. In pulmonary delivery of peptides and proteins, particle deposition and absorption are influenced by the aerodynamic size of the inhaled particles, resistance to airflow, dissolution, partition and diffusion of drug particles in respiratory tract fluids, and stability of particles in the presence of enzymes and mucociliary clearance. In aerosolization, a more uniform distribution with greater… CONTINUE READING
