A unique comprehensive survey and review of the status of the rapidly increasing array of biopharmaceuticals derived from the molecular biology approaches now so widely available. Designed as an introduction for the novice - or even the professional already acquainted with molecular therapeutics - who wishes to become familiar with both the basics and the range of biopharmaceutical initiatives now underway, this informative book illuminates and explains macromolecular and biological drug design, as well as the development, delivery, clinical trials, and government regulation of the new therapeutics. Its eminently practical approach takes the reader from basic biotechnology, through drug conception and design, to state-of-the-art clinical application of both investigational and currently approved biologicals. Biopharmaceutical Drug Design and Development will help medicinal chemists, molecular modelers, pharmacologists, pharmaceutical scientists, and clinical scientists involved in pharmaceutical biotechnology to develop the new therapeutic agents that lie so close ahead.
