Pharmaceutical Biotechnology offers students taking Pharmacyand related Medical and Pharmaceutical courses a comprehensiveintroduction to the fast-moving area of biopharmaceuticals. With aparticular focus on the subject taken from a pharmaceuticalperspective, initial chapters offer a broad introduction to proteinscience and recombinant DNA technology- key areas that underpin thewhole subject. Subsequent chapters focus upon the development,production and analysis of these substances. Finally the book moveson to explore the science, biotechnology and medical applicationsof specific biotech products categories. These include not onlyprotein-based substances but also nucleic acid and cell-basedproducts.* introduces essential principles underlining modernbiotechnology- recombinant DNA technology and protein science
* an invaluable introduction to this fast-moving subject aimedspecifically at pharmacy and medical students
* includes specific 'product category chapters'focusing on the pharmaceutical, medical and therapeutic propertiesof numerous biopharmaceutical products.
* entire chapter devoted to the principles of genetic engineeringand how these drugs are developed.
* includes numerous relevant case studies to enhance studentunderstanding
* no prior knowledge of protein structure is assumed
