About this Book

With its focus on industrial pharmaceutical research, written by international experts from the industry, this book fills in a gap in the existing literature. It reflects the combination of such pharmaceutical interests as drug delivery, drug targeting, quality and safety management, drug approval and regulation, patenting issues and biotechnology fundamentals.
Thus it provides practitioners in pharmaceutical biotechnology with all the relevant information from the shelf.
The first part offers 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 very critical patenting and drug regulation issues. The whole is rounded off by detailed monographs of biotechnologically developed drugs that are already on the market.

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."
