New in This Edition
"This book is very useful for those who work in home infusion practices or any pharmacy venue where stability data needs to be extended. This is considered to be the foundation book for extended stability. Handbook on Injectable Drugs is much more targeted for hospital practice. This book serves as a nice supplement and addition to other books in any sterile products pharmacy's library. This book needs to be updated periodically, so this sixth edition is welcomed."
