Description

  • This second edition of a very successful book is thoroughly updated with existing chapters completely rewritten while the content has more than doubled from 16 to 36 chapters.
  • As with the first edition, the focus is on industrial pharmaceutical research, written by a team of industry experts from around the world, while quality and safety management, drug approval and regulation, patenting issues, and biotechnology fundamentals are also covered. In addition, this new edition now not only includes biotech drug development but also the use of biopharmaceuticals in diagnostics and vaccinations.
  • With a foreword by Robert Langer, Kenneth J Germeshausen Professor of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at MIT and member of the National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Sciences.

Review

“This textbook provides a concise overview of pharmaceutical biotechnology focusing on the industrial needs of recombinant drugs, processes, and clinical use.” (E-STREAMS)

“. . . international experts . . . have provided precise and valuable information for the industrial experts, scientists, pharmacists, research managers. . . .” (American Journal of Therapeutics)

Pharmaceutical Biotechnology is in touch with the industry’s needs and challenges. . . .” (Biotechnology Journal, July 2012)

From the Back Cover

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, this text provides practitioners in pharmaceutical biotechnology with all the relevant information straight off the shelf.

With a foreword of by Robert Langer, Kenneth J Germeshausen Professor of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 2002, he received the Charles Stark Draper Prize, the highest recognition for an engineer. Professor Langer is member of all three national academies – the Institute of Medicine, the National Academy of Engineering, and the National Academy of Sciences:
“The book attempts to provide a balanced view of the biotechnological industry and the number of experts from industry sharing their knowledge and experience with the audience gives the book an outstanding value. All contributors provide with each chapter an up-to-date review on key topics in pharmaceutical biotechnology.
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.”
