The pharmaceutical industry has become increasingly interested in biologics from animal venoms as a potential source for therapeutic agents in recent years, with a particularly emphasis on peptides. To date six drugs derived from venom peptides or proteins have been approved by the FDA, with nine further agents currently being investigated in clinical trials. In addition to these drugs in approved or advanced stages of development, many more peptides and proteins are being studied in varying stages of preclinical development. This unique book provides an up to date and comprehensive account of the potential of peptides and proteins from animal venoms as possible therapeutics. Topics covered include chemistry and structural biology of animal venoms, proteomic and transcriptomic approaches to drug discovery, bioassays, high-throughput screens and target identification, and reptile, scorpion, spider and cone snail venoms as a platform for drug development. Case studies are used to illustrate methods and successes and highlight issues surrounding administration and other important lessons that have been learnt from the development of approved therapeutics based on venoms. The first text to focus on this fascinating area and bridging an important gap, this book provides the reader with essential and current knowledge on this fast-developing area. Venoms to Drugs will find wide readership with researchers working in academia and industry working in all medicinal and pharmaceutical areas.
If you work with children, you must have this book. For more than two decades, Pediatric Injectable Drugs (The Teddy Bear Book), has served an important and continuing need for reliable evidence-based information specific to pediatric injectable drugs. The tenth edition of this invaluable reference has grown to cover 238 drugs commonly used in the treatment of infants and children, including 20 new to this edition. The Teddy Bear Book covers neonates through adolescents, with age-specific dosing and administration guidelines throughout. With three new editors, who collectively bring 75 years of pediatric pharmacy practice experience to the book, the tenth edition is the most thorough and comprehensive reference yet. As with previous editions, the structure of each of the drug monographs covers the following areas:* Brand Names* Medication Error Potential* Contraindications and Warnings* Infusion-Related Cautions* Dosage (age specific)* Dosage Adjustment in Organ Dysfunction* Maximum Dosage* Additives* Suitable Diluents* Maximum Concentrations* Preparation and Delivery* IV Push* Intermittent Infusion* Continuous Infusion* Other Routes of Administration* Comments Also included is a comprehensive list of abbreviations and more than 4800 references. This is the only pediatric (neonates through adolescents) parenteral drug reference that covers limited fluid amounts, maximum doses, and limited intravenous sites - issues that pediatric practitioners often face in their patients. When it comes to pediatric injectable drugs, valid safety and efficacy research can be hard to locate. This indispensable reference changes all that.
