Validation of Cell-Based Assays in the GLP Setting: A Practical Guide

Sold by John Wiley & Sons
Free sample

The use of cell-based assays within pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies is driven in large part by the need to evaluate the plethora of drug targets derived from genomics and proteomics. In addition, the potential of biomarkers to facilitate the development of effective and safe drugs is being recognized as an integral part of all phases of drug development, and cell-based technologies are a critical part of biomarker discovery and development. Despite this critical role, cell-based assays have not been standardized and made compliant with Good Laboratory Practice guidelines.

In this book, the editors have collected assays for which validation procedures have been developed, making this a vital purchase for anyone using such assays in drug development.

This book:

  • Describes the development, optimization and validation of cell-based assays, including procedural documentation required for Good Laboratory Practice
  • Presents validations of cell-based assays for select targets, with step-by-step instructions, allowing the reader to reproduce the assay conditions and results
  • Provides details of techniques used in the evaluation of immunodeficiency, autoimmune and oncological disorders, including assessment of cancer vaccines
  • Offers a compendium of validation parameters that need to be considered when using these methods to develop a new drug
  • Includes detailed protocols for the evaluation of cytokines and of neutralizing antibodies directed against protein therapeutics

Validation of Cell-based Assays in the GLP Setting provides the professional with an invaluable reference source, featuring key guidelines. The book will prove extremely useful to all scientists working in the areas of drug development.

Biotechnology for Beginners, Second Edition, presents the latest information and developments from the field of biotechnology—the applied science of using living organisms and their by-products for commercial development—which has grown and evolved to such an extent over the past few years that increasing numbers of professionals work in areas that are directly impacted by the science. For the first time, this book offers an exciting and colorful overview of biotechnology for professionals and students in a wide array of the life sciences, including genetics, immunology, biochemistry, agronomy, and animal science.

This book also appeals to the lay reader without a scientific background who is interested in an entertaining and informative introduction to the key aspects of biotechnology. Authors Renneberg and Demain discuss the opportunities and risks of individual technologies and provide historical data in easy-to-reference boxes, highlighting key topics. The book covers all major aspects of the field, from food biotechnology to enzymes, genetic engineering, viruses, antibodies, and vaccines, to environmental biotechnology, transgenic animals, analytical biotechnology, and the human genome. This stimulating book is the most user-friendly source for a comprehensive overview of this complex field.

Provides accessible content to the lay reader who does not have an extensive scientific backgroundIncludes all facets of biotechnology applicationsCovers articles from the most respected scientists, including Alan Guttmacher, Carl Djerassi, Frances S. Ligler, Jared Diamond, Susan Greenfield, and moreContains a summary, annotated references, links to useful web sites, and appealing review questions at the end of each chapterPresents more than 600 color figures and over 100 illustrationsWritten in an enthusiastic and engaging style unlike other existing theoretical and dry-style biotechnology books
