Research and development into biological products for therapeutic use has increased dramatically over the last 10 years. With this, strict regulatory requirements have been imposed by authorities such as the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, so that today validation has become a key issue in the biopharmaceutical industry.This concise book addresses validation issues in the chromatography of biotherapeutics. It covers process design, qualification and validation, including an overview of analytical techniques commonly used in the validation of processes. A concluding section comments on product changeover and presents four case studies.

The actinomycetes are a group of bacteria well known as producers of antibiotics. With the advent of molecular biology they have become important to biotechnologists in the search for new antibiotics, vitamins, enzyme inhibitors, etc. They also play an important role in the biodegradation of wastes, and their wide (natural) distribution in soil, composts, water and elsewhere in the environment makes them important to the agricultural and waste industries. This research book presents a broad view of the current interest in actinomycetes, ranging from isolation/screening of actinomycetes, discovery of new antibiotics, a substantial contribution on genetic manipulation to actinomycetes in agriculture, forestry, and the threat of actinomycetes as pollutants in the environment.The chapters, which have been written by experts, are intended to provide a balanced view of the opportunities and problems in an expanding field of interest.

The Quality Control of Medicines documents the proceedings of the 35th International Congress of Pharmaceutical Sciences, organized by the Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland on behalf of the Federation Internationale Pharmaceutique, held in Dublin, on 1-5 September 1975. The theme chosen for the Congress was ""the basis for the quality control of medicines"", because of the importance and relevance of quality control in the production and distribution of medicines at national and international levels. This volume is arranged according to the manner in which the theme of the Congress was developed by the eminent invited speakers. Following the inaugural address a main symposium was held where five speakers presented a review of the quality control of medicines under the general headings of (i) chemical and physical aspects; (ii) biological aspects; (iii) control of drug delivery systems; (iv) storage problems; and (v) problems of international control. Certain aspects of the content of the main symposium were then developed in greater depth in parallel symposia. In the first parallel symposium some novel physicochemical aspects of the quality control of medicines were treated under the headings of spectrofluorimetry, mass spectrometry, detection in gas chromatography, and automation in pharmaceutical analysis. The second parallel symposium developed certain microbiological aspects of quality control under the headings of sterility testing and microbiological control of non-sterile products and ophthalmic preparations. The final symposium on submissions to regulatory bodies and international aspects of drug control covered aspects of politics in submissions, regulatory problems in small countries, and various pharmacopoeial problems.

Drug Design, Volume IV covers the pharmaceutical phase of drug action, with emphasis on those aspects that are of importance in the design of optimally effective drug products. The book discusses biopharmaceutics as a basis for the design of drug products; the types and pharmacokinetics of peroral prolonged action dosage forms and parenteral prolonged action forms; and the design of topical drug products. The text also describes physical-chemical parameters which affect the bioavailability of topical drug products; the design of sunscreen preparations; as well as the clinical application of litholytic agents, which are preventive and curative drugs for nephrolithiasis. The design of biologically active nucleosides and of insecticidal chlorohydrocarbon derivatives is also encompassed. Chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, and people involved in drug design will find the book invaluable.

Parenteral Products: The Preparation and Quality Control of Products for Injection deals with modern pharmaceutical practice in the preparation, quality control, and storage of injectable drug solutions. The book gives a basic background of parenteral solutions, the routes of administration, the effects of the different administrations of injection solutions, and the formulation of these products. The text discusses the theories of filtration, the different methods used, such as screen filters, depth filters, and the possible choices of filtration to capture any preselected unwanted particle size. Developments on sterilization of the product are given attention, citing techniques and equipment. The working and preparation conditions are discussed, since the sterile intravenous solutions, whether in large or small quantities, are done in quite the same procedures, with the similar equipment, and same organization. Equally important in the discussion are the monitoring and control of contamination by particulates through the application of standards known as the Coulter principle and the light-blockage method. The pharmaceutical problems encountered during the administration of large volume drip solutions are analyzed. This book is helpful for pharmacists, pharmaceutical students and professors, and those working in the pharmaceutical industry and hospital/health sector.
