Essential Biochemistry for Medicine

Essential Biochemistry for Medicine, 1st ed

Mitchell Fry 2010 To the uninitiated, biochemistry is a complex and intricate subject, but importantly it is a subject that underpins the biosciences, including medicine. As a university lecturer, and by training a biochemist, I have taught my subject to both ‘my own’ students, and to those on allied degree schemes and pre-clinical medicine. Of course, the lines […]

Viral Entry into Host Cells

Viral Entry into Host Cells-1

Edited by Stefan Pöhlmann Graham Simmons 2013 For a virus to invade a host cell it needs to penetrate the physical barrier imposed by the plasma membrane. Viruses have evolved specialized surface proteins to meet this challenge. These proteins facilitate delivery of the viral genetic information into the host cell by either fusing the viral envelope with a […]

The Challenge of CMC Regulatory Compliance for Biopharmaceuticals and Other Biologics

The Challenge of CMC Regulatory Compliance for Biopharmaceuticals and Other Biologics-1

John Geigert 2013 Preparing the 2nd edition of my book was a humbling experience for me. My primary purpose for updating the 1st edition was to continue to provide relevant insight and practical suggestions for a risk-managed, common sense, scientific, practical business approach to managing the Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) regulatory compliance requirements and expectations for biopharmaceuticals as human […]
