Pharmaceutical Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Pharmaceutical Biotechnology
Second Edition
edited by Michael J. Groves

Pharmaceutical Biotechnology explores the development of protein-based therapeutic substances.

Features:

  • Provides a working knowledge of the preparation, stability, and formulation of protein and peptide drugs
  • Examines the successful evolution of humanized monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to treat rheumatoid arthritis and other diseases
  • Considers the currently disappointing results of genetic engineering and genomics that have isolated disease-responsible genes without significant clinical effect to date
  • Looks at the market and scientific reasons behind the failure of many biotechnology products to live up to their hype
  • Discusses regulatory and compendial issues and concludes with a look at future challenges facing biotechnology
