Macrocycles in Drug Discovery (Hardcover): Jeremy Levin Macrocycles in Drug Discovery (Hardcover)
Jeremy Levin
R4,227 Discovery Miles 42 270 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book reviews macrocycles in drug discovery, both those of natural origin and semi-synthetic derivatives of natural products, and those designed and synthesized based on principles of medicinal chemistry. The medicinal chemistry of macrocyclic natural products is interesting in itself, but lessons learned from these compounds, in terms of the relationship between structure and desirable physicochemical properties, are now informing the design of fully synthetic macrocyclic drug candidates against a variety of targets including kinases, ATPases, proteases, GPCRs and others. Furthermore, as more non-classical drug targets, such as protein-protein interactions, are pursued in the pharmaceutical industry, macrocyclic molecules are generating increasing interest as they offer a way to provide drug-protein interactions that cover a larger surface area than traditional small molecules. A variety of macrocycles have become important drugs or have been identified as leads to marketed drugs. This text will discuss these compounds, their pharmacology and synthesis, in the context of their broad chemotype as compounds composed of large rings. Providing a wide reaching review of this important area in a single volume, this book will be of interest to biochemists, pharmaceutical scientists and medicinal chemists working in industry or academia.

Re-inventing Drug Development (Hardcover): Jeffrey S Handen Re-inventing Drug Development (Hardcover)
Jeffrey S Handen
R2,741 Discovery Miles 27 410 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The biopharmaceutical industry has entered an era of unprecedented change and challenge, characterized by increasing pricing pressures, rising rates of attrition in the product development lifecycle, and decreasing scientific innovation. The most successful products are losing patent protection, and pipelines have been unable to fill the gap. This book explores the evolving definition of innovation in therapeutic product development and begins to examine its effects on the life sciences R&D industry. Historically, scientific innovation alone was sufficient to maintain ROI and deliver on unmet medical needs. However, with many forces now conspiring to increase pressures on the commoditization of drug development, industry support for truly novel, often high-risk development has eroded. This calls for a drastic redefinition of what "innovation" is. While innovation in the pharmaceutical R&D industry has historically been applied to major advances in therapy and unmet medical needs, we now need to see innovation increasingly defined in terms of financial, marketing (e.g. branded generics and emerging markets), pharmacoeconomic, and operational innovation. In this book, contributors drawn from the executive ranks of clinical development practitioners and stakeholders-from biopharmaceutical companies, clinical research organizations, academia, the financial community, and the patient perspective-have all come together to provide their expertise and visions. Their goal is to start a dialogue about ways to radically improve therapeutics development and get more and better medicines to the patients who need them, as fast as possible, in the most cost-efficient manner.

Handbook of Bioequivalence Testing (Hardcover, 2nd New edition): Sarfaraz K. Niazi Handbook of Bioequivalence Testing (Hardcover, 2nd New edition)
Sarfaraz K. Niazi
R3,455 Discovery Miles 34 550 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

As the generic pharmaceutical industry continues to grow and thrive, so does the need to conduct adequate, efficient bioequivalence studies. In recent years, there have been significant changes to the statistical models for evaluating bioequivalence. In addition, advances in the analytical technology used to detect drug and metabolite levels have made bioequivalence testing more complex. The second edition of Handbook of Bioequivalence Testing has been completely updated to include the most current information available, including new findings in drug delivery and dosage form design and revised worldwide regulatory requirements. New topics include: A historical perspective on generic pharmaceuticals New guidelines governing submissions related to bioequivalency studies, along with therapeutic code classifications Models of noninferiority Biosimilarity of large molecule drugs Bioequivalence of complementary and alternate medicines Bioequivalence of biosimilar therapeutic proteins and monoclonal antibodies New FDA guidelines for bioanalytical method validation Outsourcing and monitoring of bioequivalence studies The cost of generic drugs is rising much faster than in the past, partly because of the increased costs required for approval-including those for bioequivalence testing. There is a dire need to re-examine the science behind this type of testing to reduce the burden of development costs-allowing companies to develop generic drugs faster and at a lower expense. The final chapter explores the future of bioequivalence testing and proposes radical changes in the process of biowaivers. It suggests how the cost of demonstrating bioequivalence can be reduced through intensive analytical investigation and proposes that regulatory agencies reduce the need for bioequivalence studies in humans. Backed by science and updated with the latest research, this book is destined to spark continued debate on the efficacy of the current bioequivalence testing paradigm.

Jose L. Arias
R3,094 Discovery Miles 30 940 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The recent introduction of nanomedicines in the drug therapy arena is revolutionizing the management of severe diseases. The key advance in the field is the optimization of the biological fate of drug molecules, thus improving the therapeutic effect while keeping to a very minimum the associated toxicity. Volume one of this book series, "Nanoplatforms in Drug Delivery," established the basic aspects in the development of drug-loaded nanoplatforms, the so-called nanomedicines or nanodrugs, focusing on representative materials and strategies used in their formulation.

Taking advantage of the advanced conceptualizations on nanomedicine engineering that were described in volume one, volume two, Nano-Engineering Strategies and Nanomedicines against Severe Diseases, analyzes in depth special features related to the formulation of nanoplatforms for oral, dental, topical and transdermal, pulmonary and nasal, ocular and otic, vaginal, and brain drug delivery and targeting. Particular aspects of nanomedicine engineering and "in vivo" fate associated with the routing of drug administration are given special attention. In addition, an up-to-date view is presented on the use of nanomedicines against severe diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, infectious diseases, chronic inflammatory diseases, and metabolic diseases. The chapters analyze the key factors that need to be controlled to achieve the optimum therapeutic effect. Attention is further given to gene delivery and the recent concept of nanotheranosis.

Computational Approaches to Nuclear Receptors (Hardcover): Pietro Cozzini, Glen E. Kellogg Computational Approaches to Nuclear Receptors (Hardcover)

R3,251 Discovery Miles 32 510 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Nuclear receptors (NR) are ligand-induced activated transcription factors that are involved in numerous biological processes. Since the 1990's when the first structures were determined by means of X ray diffraction, the number of NR structures has increased considerably. Moreover several "omics" projects (genomics, pharmcogenomics and proteomics) have opened up great opportunities for the discovery of new targets, the characterization of abnormal protein patterns, the selection of "tailored" drugs and the evaluation of drug efficacy even with a lack of structural data. Furthermore, structure-based drug design, computational methods for in silico screening and nanobiotechnology- based tools are simplifying this time-consuming and money-intensive research of lead compounds and, possibly, new drugs. Biological interactions such as those that occur between a protein and ligand are concerted events where flexible molecules interact. Thus understanding flexibility of large molecules or biological complexes is of primary importance to help define the right model to approximate the reality for drug discovery, virtual screening, food safety analysis, etc. NRs are known as flexible targets, with many structural similarities, in particular for their Ligand Binding Domain: these similarities could be assumed to share behavioural qualities that belong to this class of compounds. Thus to supply a possible, complete and exhaustive answer to questions about the behaviour of NRs, their interactions with new potential drugs, endocrine disruptors such as animal and human food toxins, food additives or industry residuals, it is mandatory to approach the problem from a different point of view: a molecular modelling approach, steered synthesis, and in vitro and in vivo tests, etc. The aim of this book is to provide a state of the art review on investigations into Nuclear Receptors.

R3,277 Discovery Miles 32 770 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The nutritional and medicinal value of metals, such as zinc, calcium, and iron, has been known in traditional medicine for a long time. Other metals, such as silver and gold, may also have therapeutic and health benefits. Ancient medicines have long incorporated their use in the treatment of diseases, and they have also more recently been explored for treatment in allopathic medicine, birthing the concept of metallonutraceuticals. The challenge of using metals in the human body is to find forms that are safe and effective.
Handbook of Metallonutraceuticals presents basic concepts related to the nutritional and therapeutic use of metals, product development strategies, and some ideas ready to be applied for condition-specific metallonutraceuticals. The book begins with an overview of the nutraceuticals field and the need for metallonutraceuticals. It considers the roles of various metals in metabolism, reviews the ethnopharmacology and ethnomedicine of metals, and covers the characterization and possible properties of metallonutraceuticals. It also examines bioavailability and drug interactions, and therapeutic applications of nanometals including use as imaging agents, in cancer diagnosis and treatment, as antibacterials and antivirals, in ocular disease, and in neurodegenerative diseases.
The book explores the use of metals in traditional Chinese medicine, potential applications for metalloenzymes, the use of nanosilver in nutraceuticals, and the potential of gold nanoparticles as a drug delivery system. In addition, it addresses intellectual property rights and regulatory considerations regarding metallonutraceuticals. Using an interdisciplinary approach, this user-friendly text provides a knowledge base and inspiration for new research in this exciting field.

Modern Strategy for Preclinical Pharmaceutical R&D Towards the Virtual Research Company David Cavalla Arachnova Ltd, Cambridge, UK With contributions from: John Flack AMRAD Corporation, Richmond, Australia and Richard Jennings Wolfson Industrial Liaison Office, University of Cambridge, UK The twentieth century has been a great success for modern medicine, and has resulted in the generation of a plethora of drugs to treat most common illnesses. However, in the light of increasing regulatory demands, spiralling costs and diminishing commercial returns, the question of how, when, where and whether to conduct pharmaceutical R&D has profound implications, and not just for those within the pharmaceutical industry. Modern Strategy for Preclinical Pharmaceutical R&D gets to the heart of the debate that surrounds this topic and asks the questions: Can the economies of scale of large multinational pharmaceutical companies adequately compensate for the loss of creative individualism that is essential for the process of drug discovery and development? Might technological experts provide better services to a number of clients rather than work within a single large infrastructure where confidentiality is paramount and synergy of multi-disciplinary operation readily possible? What are the long-term prospects for the latest alternatives to large pharmaceutical R&D companies? In response to these and other dilemmas, the authors define the processes involved in drug R&D, explore the advantages and disadvantages of collaborative methods of drug research, and examine the roles that academia, CROs, small 'biotechnology' companies and 'research boutiques', and possibly even the 'virtual research company'might play as contractors and collaborators. Without a doubt, Modern Strategy for Preclinical Pharmaceutical R&D is essential reading for all those interested in making sense of the confusion that surrounds today's pharmaceutical industry.

Although the Bioequivalence (BE) requirements in many global jurisdictions have much in common, differences in certain approaches and requirements such as definitions and terms, choice of comparator (reference) product, acceptance criteria, fasted and fed studies, single and multi-dose studies, biowaivers and products not intended for absorption into the systemic circulation (locally acting medicines and dosage forms), amongst others, provide food for thought that standardisation should be a high priority objective in order to result in a harmonized international process for the market approval of products using BE. An important objective of Bioequivalence Requirements in Various Global Jurisdictions is to attempt to gather the various BE requirements used in different global jurisdictions to provide a single source of relevant information. This information from, Brazil, Canada, China, European Union, India, Japan, MENA, Russia South Africa, the USA and WHO will be of value to drug manufacturers, regulatory agencies, pharmaceutical scientists and related health organizations and governments around the world in the quest to harmonize regulatory requirements for the market approval of generic products.

The field of solid state characterization is central to the pharmaceutical industry, as drug products are, in an overwhelming number of cases, produced as solid materials. Selection of the optimum solid form is a critical aspect of the development of pharmaceutical compounds, due to their ability to exist in more than one form or crystal structure (polymorphism). These polymorphs exhibit different physical properties which can affect their biopharmaceutical properties. This book provides an up-to-date review of the current techniques used to characterize pharmaceutical solids. Ensuring balanced, practical coverage with industrial relevance, it covers a range of key applications in the field. The following topics are included: * Physical properties and processes * Thermodynamics * Intellectual guidance * X-ray diffraction * Spectroscopy Microscopy * Particle sizing * Mechanical properties * Vapour sorption * Thermal analysis & Calorimetry * Polymorph prediction * Form selection
