From the Back Cover

The essential single source on drug discovery and biotechnology products—newly revised and updated

Since the first edition of Biotechnology and Biopharmaceuticals was published, biotechnology has continued to drive therapeutic product development. The majority of new medicines coming on the market today are developed based on tools created by biotechnology—and healthcare providers who are concerned with optimum drug therapy need to understand the principles underlying the discovery, development, and application of these biological drugs and therapies of the future.

Biotechnology and Biopharmaceuticals: Transforming Proteins and Genes into Drugs, Second Edition addresses the pivotal issues relating to translational science, including preclinical and clinical drug development, regulatory science, pharmaco-economics, and cost-effectiveness considerations. It provides research pharmacologists, biopharmaceutical R&D personnel, toxicologists, and biotechnologists with cutting-edge research on new proteins and genetic medicines, the translational and integrated sciences that continue to fuel the innovations in medicine, as well as the new areas of therapeutic development, including cancer vaccines, stem cell therapeutics, and cell-based therapies.

Presented in three parts, and containing several appendices, Biotechnology and Biopharmaceuticals:

  • Integrates information from pharmacology, biotechnology, and the medical sciences
  • Covers the science and art of transforming proteins and genes into drugs
  • Offers new coverage of cell-based therapeutics, including stem cells and immune cell therapy
  • Highlights the unique applications of biologics, proteins, and macromolecules as therapeutics
  • Includes new chapters on the clinical trial and approval process of individualized medicine
  • Discusses the future direction of the field

Ideal for research pharmacologists, biopharmaceutical R&D personnel, toxicologists, and biotechnologists, Biotechnology and Biopharmaceuticals will also appeal to clinical pharmacologists, pharmacists, physicians, and health scientists.
