This is the long-awaited third edition of the most comprehensive compilation of drug information resources available. A co-publication with the Medical Library Association, it draws on industry expert Bonnie Snow's 30+ years of experience with pharmaceutical information needs and applications.Snow reviews 400+ print and electronic resources. More than a bibliography, this readable guide brings together the best resources plus practical advice on everything from expert search techniques to core collections for libraries. Subject areas covered include: pharmaceutical technology; legal and regulatory issues world-wide; industrial pharmacy; market research; product guides and prescribing information in the global marketplace; drug interactions; drug effects on pregnancy, lactation, and reproduction; pharmacovigilance; and much, much more.Completely revised, reorganized, and updated, the third edition focuses on information sources not covered elsewhere. Absolutely unique in its value as both a desk reference and a text for classroom use or self-study, this edition manages to meet the needs of students, information professionals, health care providers, and pharmacy practitioners.
Recent years have seen enormous advances in the field of protein and peptide engineering and a greater understanding in the way in which biological response modifiers function in the body. It is now possible through the use of recombinant DNA techniques, or by solid phase protein synthesis, to produce significant quantities of a wide variety of regulatory agents that are therapeutically applicable. The list of these response modifiers expands almost daily to include interferons, macrophage activation factors, neuropeptides and agents that may have potential in cardiovascular disease, inflammation, contraception etc. Prospects to use some of these materials in medicine have reached the stage where products have either been approved by regulatory authorities or are the subject of applications as investigatory drugs or as new therapeutic agents. In some uses the pertinent agent will be administered on an acute basis in the form of a simple injection, as, for example, the use of a tissue plasminogen activator for the treatment of coronary infarct. In other cases regulatory proteins and peptides are indicated for chronic therapy and here they will need to be administered by an appropriate delivery system. Unfortunately, the research on delivery systems for peptides and proteins has not kept pace with the rapid progress in biotechnology and, consequently, there are presently few systems that are entirely appropriate for the administration of macromolecular drugs according to complex dosage regimens, (eg intermittent and pulsed therapy). Furthermore essential pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data may be missing.
Libraries in the Arab world are numerous and have a long and distingished history. Today, they serve over 250 million people. To provide good service to this large population and improve other areas of librarianship and information services, the evaluation of library and information services becomes a necessity. This is particularly true in the case of libraries in the Arab world, because locating such materials is not an easy task, given the lack of comprehensive and current bibliographies that cover Arab-related Library and Information Science literature. This bibliography fills this significant gap and provides an indispensable guide for any research in the field with over 1,000 entries covering books, scholarly and professional journal articles, chapters in books, doctoral dissertations, and conference papers. Items included are mainly in Arabic, English, and French; but some German, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, and Italian works are also covered. The bibliography includes author, title, and subject indexes.
