Protein Formulation Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Protein Formulation and Delivery
Second edition
edited by Eugene McNally

Protein Formulation and Delivery will assist pharmaceutical scientists in the development of stable protein formulations during the early stages of the product development process, providing:

  • a comprehensive review of mechanisms and causes of protein instability in formulation development
  • coverage of accelerated stability testing methods and relevant analytical methodsand
  • an overview of the drug substance manufacturing process

Preformulation and the development of traditional solutions and lyophilized formulations frequently used for intravenous delivery and non-traditional formulations are also addressed. This Second edition addresses important new patient-friendly developments in the field, such as formulation for implantable devices, needle-free formulation and delivery approaches, and oral delivery of proteins.


  • Discusses new, innovative scientific approaches including stabilization and delivery of proteins as single crystals, high through-put (robotic) formulation screening, and liposome approaches to protein formulation and delivery
  • features new or expanded sections on rational choice of excipients for freeze drying, pulmonary delivery of insulin, and expiration dating and specification setting for biologics
  • includes several chapters for scientists transitioning from working with small molecules to working with proteins
