- 8. Quality, safety and efficacy of drugs Safety and efficacy of pharmaceuticals are two fundamental issues of importance in drug therapy. The safety of a drug is determined by its pharmacological and toxicological profile as well as the adverse effects caused by the impurities in bulk and dosage forms. The impurities in drugs often possess unwanted pharmacological or toxicological effects by which any benefit from their administration may be outweighed (Nageswara at el., 2003). Therefore, it is quite obvious that the products intended for human consumption must be characterized as completely as possible....   [tags: Safety, Pharmaceuticals, drugs, Safe and Effective]

Applications of Protein Purification

- Protein purification has a variety of applications in drug delivery, tissue engineering, and biointerface science. Elastin-like polypeptides can undergo protein purification so that a single type of protein can be isolated from a complex mixture. Because of the increased demands of peptide-based biomaterials for drug delivery and tissue engineering, efficient protein purification techniques must be used. Four techniques that will be discussed in this report are: Affinity chromatography, Centrifugation-based Inverse Transition Cycling (ITC), Microfiltration-based Inverse Transition Cycling, and finally protein purification by self-cleaving purification tags....   [tags: Protein purification, medical, ]

Investigating the Effect of Temperature on the Volume of a Gas

- Investigating the Effect of Temperature on the Volume of a Gas Aim: To investigate the effect of temperature on the volume of a gas, given that the pressure acting on the gas is fixed. Hypothesis: According to CharlesÂ’s Law, the volume of a given amount of gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature when the pressure is constant. Thus, it is expected that as the temperature of the gas increases, its volume will increase also at a constant rate. When the temperature is increased, the particles in the gas gain more kinetic energy and as a result, the particles move faster and quicker and thus, the particles bombard each other more frequently....   [tags: Papers]
