Pharmacokinetics in Drug Development: Advances and Applications, Volume 3

The topics chosen for this volume were selected because they are some of the current development or technological issues facing drug development project teams.  They regard the practical considerations for assessment of selected special development populations.  For example, they include characterization of drug disposition in pregnant subjects, for measuring arrhythmic potential, for analysis tumor growth modeling, and for disease p...

Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements in Arid Environments

This book offers comprehensive coverage of trace elements in arid zone regions. It begins by introducing the nature and properties of arid zone soil, followed by coverage of the major aspects of the trace elements and heavy metals of most concern in the world’s arid and semi-arid soils. A comprehensive, focused case study on transfer fluxes of trace elements in Israeli arid soils is used to illustrate the themes presented in the book.

Batch Processes

Reduced time to market, lower production costs, and improved flexibility are critical success factors for batch processes. Their ability to handle variations in feedstock and product specifications has made them key to the operation of multipurpose facilities, and therefore quite popular in the specialty chemical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and biotechnology-enabled products industries. The editors of Batch Processes analyze the d...
