Drug Research Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Pharmaceutical Biotechnology
Drug Discovery
and Clinical Applications
edited by O. Kayser

Written by international experts from within the sector, this is the first book to focus on industrial pharmaceutical research. As such, it responds to the combination of such pharmaceutical interests as drug delivery, drug targeting, quality and safety management, drug approval and regulation, patenting issues and biotechnology fundamentals.

The first part provides a comprehensive survey and review of the rapidly increasing array of biopharmaceuticals derived from the molecular biological approaches now widely available. This is followed by an extra section devoted to the highly critical patenting and drug regulation issues. The whole is rounded off by detailed monographs of biotechnologically developed drugs that are already on the market.

In short, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology: Drug Discovery and Clinical Applications provides practitioners in pharmaceutical biotechnology with all the relevant information straight off the shelf.

This work is not only a valuable tool for the industrial expert but also for all pharmacists and scientists from related areas who wish to work with biotech drugs.
