No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Rapid advances in recombinant DNA technology and the increasing availability of peptides and proteins with therapeutic potential pose a challenge for pharmaceutical scientists who have to formulate these compounds as drug products. This book focuses on general pharmaceutical developmental aspects of peptides and proteins. The general principles of production, purification, degradation mechanisms, and analysis are discussed. Several chapters discuss the formulation design of peptides and proteins, including protein modification and alternative administration strategies. This second edition also includes chapters on the immunogenicity of protein pharmaceuticals and the biosimulation of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
