Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David B Lebo, R.Ph., Ph.D.(Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: In this summary of pharmaceutical biotechnology, each chapter is written by an expert author on a specific area of biotechnology. This could lead to some inconsistencies among authors, but the organization of the book eliminates this problem.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a complete overview of biotechnology to people with pharmacy backgrounds. The book does a great job meeting the objectives.
Audience: Some chapters are appropriate for pharmacy students and others are best for graduate students. However, the book would be fine for pharmacy students if accompanied by lectures to explain some concepts, and it would be good for graduate students if additional material is provided during lectures.
Features: The book is well organized and reader friendly. It presents the material by grouping the concepts into three sections: background science, therapeutic classes, and regulatory and economic considerations. I like the layout and the illustrations are wonderful.
Assessment: We use this book in our graduate program and I have not found a better text. The new edition is necessary because of the evolution of the science. A fourth edition will be needed in 3 to 5 years.
