Therapeutic Peptides and Proteins
Formulation, Processing, and Delivery Systems, Second Edition
The book begins with the basics of the origin of recombinant proteins, explores structural and analytical aspects, and moves on to discuss the stability of proteins and peptides. Against this background, the author addresses preformulation and formulation considerations and provides detailed information on important topics such as lyophilization. He goes on to discuss various delivery systems, including controlled release delivery systems and products currently on the market. The book also contains newly added regulatory information and thoroughly investigates therapeutic drugs made from proteins as well as protein-based vaccines. A new chapter on recombinant protein subunit vaccines and their delivery systems has been added.
The work of a single author, the book provides complex information in a simple, elegant, and cohesive style. The author minimizes overlap between coverage and includes extensive cross-referencing that links related topics. Completely revised and updated, packed with cutting-edge information, the second edition once again fills the need for a reference that pulls all the relevant information together into one resource.
