By Rodney J. Y. Ho

Biotechnology and Biopharmaceuticals: remodeling Proteins and Genes into medicinal drugs defines biotechnology from the point of view of prescription drugs. the 1st part makes a speciality of the method of remodeling a biologic macromolecule right into a healing agent, whereas the second one part presents a quick assessment of every category of macromolecule with appreciate to physiological position and scientific software. extra element can be supplied within the moment part for every FDA authorized, recombinantly derived biopharmaceutical for every classification of macromolecule. the ultimate part seems to be to the long run and the hot advances that would improve our skill to enhance new macromolecules into potent biopharmaceuticals. This final part discusses numerous drug supply options whereas additionally describing gene and mobilephone remedy ideas.

Handbook of Pharmaceutical Excipients

The alphabetical instruction manual of 250 excipients (40 greater than the final variation) contains a 2-4 web page part for every excipient that comes with nonproprietary names, synonyms, chemical identify and CAS registry quantity, empirical formulation and molecular weight, structural formulation, useful type, purposes in pharmaceutical formula or know-how, description, pharmacopeial requisites, general homes, balance and garage stipulations, incompatibilities, approach to manufacture, security, dealing with precautions, regulatory prestige, comparable elements, reviews, particular references, normal references, and authors.

Quality Operations Procedures for Pharmaceutical, API, and Biotechnology

To stick in compliance with rules, pharmaceutical, scientific, and biotech businesses needs to create qualtiy SOPs that construct within the regulatory specifications into activities and describe own circulation, inner stream, circulation of data, and processing steps. caliber Operations strategies for Pharmaceutical, API, and Biotechnology and the accompanying CD-ROM take note of all significant foreign rules, resembling FDA, european GMP, cGMP, GLP, PDA technical monographs, PDA technical experiences, PMA thoughts, journals of PDA, GCP, and commonplace ISO 9000, to be in compliance with documentation guidance.

Polycyclic Hydrocarbons: Volume 2

Polycyclic hydrocarbons are of curiosity in lots of fields of technological know-how: theoretical chemistry, actual chemistry, natural chemistry, dyestuff chemistry and biology. on the subject of the latter, i'm indebted to Dr. Regina Schoental of the scientific study Council for the assessment during this current paintings of carcinogenesis by means of polycyclic hydrocarbons.

clinical pharmacy and therapeutics

Now in its 5th variation, this best-selling, multidisciplinary textbook keeps to attract at the talents of pharmacists and clinicians to give optimum drug regimens. The authors combine an realizing of the disorder tactics with an appreciation of pathophysiological procedures, medical pharmacy and the proof base.

B) Clearance and volume of distribution terms for drugs not administered by IV usually reflect clearance and volume terms divided by bioavailability (i. , CL/F or V/F). 2 Administration Pathways Triptorelin/Trelstar 15–27 L 22 2 Pharmacokinetics of Peptides and Proteins hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), whereas a continuous baseline level will suppress the release of these hormones [10]. To avoid the high peaks from an IV administration of leuprorelin, an LH-RH agonist, a long-acting monthly depot injection of the drug is approved for the treatment of prostate cancer and endometriosis [11].

Additionally, they outline some of the associated challenges and obstacles in the drug development process and illustrate them with examples of approved and experimental drugs. 1. 2 Administration Pathways Peptides and proteins, unlike conventional small-molecule drugs, are generally not therapeutically active upon oral administration [4–6]. The lack of systemic bioavailability is mainly caused by two factors: high gastrointestinal enzyme activity, and low permeability through the gastrointestinal mucosa.

Peyer’s patches cover approximately 25 % of the gastrointestinal mucosal surface area and are characteristically high in phagocytotic activity with limited lysosomal activity. More importantly, protein and peptide delivery through GALT offers the advantage of bypassing hepatic first-pass metabolism [6]. The concept has successfully been demonstrated by oral delivery of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in PLGA microspheres to diabetic mice. Mice treated with the microsphere preparation had indeed a lower glycemic response to oral glucose challenge than mice treated with GLP-1 without encapsulation into microspheres [39].
