Biopharmaceuticals: Biochemistry and Biotechnology provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the science and medical applications of biopharmaceutical products. Specific chapters detail therapeutic substances such as interferons, interleukins and growth factors, as well as hormones, therapeutic enzymes, blood products, antibodies, and vaccines. While the emphasis is placed upon polypeptide-based therapeutic agents, the potential applications of nucleic acids with regard to gene therapy and antisense technology are considered in the final chapter. In addition, other chapters detail regulatory issues as applied to biopharmaceuticals, and how such products are manufactured in practice. The author has produced an up-to-date, easy-to-read book and each chapter is supplemented with a substantial further reading section. It is of particular relevance to students undertaking advanced undergraduate or postgraduate courses in biotechnology, biochemistry, pharmaceutical science or medicine. Its scope also renders it an ideal reference for those already employed in the (bio)pharmaceutical sector who wish to gain a better overview of the industry in which they work.
