Book Description

June 27, 2003 0471206903 978-0471206903 1
Biotechnology and Biopharmaceuticals: Transforming Proteins and Genes into Drugs defines biotechnology from the perspective of pharmaceuticals. The first section focuses on the process of transforming a biologic macromolecule into a therapeutic agent, while the second section provides a brief overview of each class of macromolecule with respect to physiological role and clinical application. Additional detail is also provided in the second section for each FDA approved, recombinantly derived biopharmaceutical for each category of macromolecule. The final section looks to the future and the new advances that will enhance our ability to develop new macromolecules into effective biopharmaceuticals. This last section discusses various drug delivery strategies while also describing gene and cell therapy strategies.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“...a useful book for a...class in the pharmacology and pharmacokinetics of biotechnology-derived products, as well as a good introductory book for people new to the biotechnology industry.” (Pharmaceutical Research, Vol. 20, No. 12, December 2003)

Review

"...faculty that teach in the pharmaceutics curriculum will find the Ho and Gibaldi text of great value as course content is revised and new areas are added and expanded. The book provides important linkages between the science and therapeutics of biotechnology products that faculty will find useful in integrating the subject matter in health sciences and graduate program curricula." --Stuart Feldman, Ph.D., Biomedical and Health Sciences Institute and Department of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly written and edited July 4, 2003
Format:Paperback
This book appears to me to be very poorly edited, with numerous clerical and scientific errors. For instance, multiple sclerosis is termed a "neurogenerative" disease rather than a "neurodegenerative" disease. The writing includes some of the longest sentences I've ever seen in scientific writing, and not to the author's benefit. The authors repeat themselves quite a bit from one chapter to the next. Disappointing!

3.0 out of 5 stars general introduction book for biological science March 26, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is only provided general information for biological science.The main part is focus on the drug information, which can be found in the public resources.Little information is mentioned about how to develop a new drug.Thus, it is suitable for undergranduate student reading, not for academic research.
