Echinacea: Herbal Medicine with a Wild History


This book provides an in-depth analysis of one the of most popular medicinal plants?Echinacea a species that is native to only the US and Canada. There are nine Echinacea species and several roots and above-ground portions of these showy wildflowers have been used in herbal medicine as an immune stimulant and to reduce one’s chances of catching a cold. Considerable medical research supports these claims. The most popular species and the primary one wild-harvested is the one native to the Great Plains, Echinacea angustifolia. It has a long history of use, including being both historically and currently the most widely-used medicinal plant by any of the Great Plains Native Americans. The importance of this species is described by the editor with a few key contributors chosen to relate the important facets of the story of this interesting plant: Echinacea’s biology, ecology, medicinal uses, markets, production and harvest, along with population biology, legal protections, ethnobotany, and history. The US Forest Service has expressed concern about the conservation status of Echinacea species on their lands, especially on the National Grasslands and National Forest units in the northern Great Plains. Overall, the future status of Echinacea, as an important medicinal plant and in the wild is not grim, but this book provides a clear perspective of why both cultivated and wild-harvested Echinacea will continue to be available to consumers without threatening the remaining populations.

Fine Particles in Medicine and Pharmacy


Pharmaceutical manufacture is very exacting – for example, drugs must be uniform in size, shape, efficacy, bioavailability, and safety. The presence of different polymorphs in drug production is a serious problem, since different polymorphs differ in bioavailability, solubility, dissolution rate, chemical and physical stability, melting point, color, filterability, density, and flow properties. Fine Particles in Medicine and Pharmacy discusses particle size, shape, and composition and how they determine the choice of polymorph of a drug.

Quality Operations Procedures for Pharmaceutical, API, and Biotechnology


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Syed Imtiaz Haider, Erfan Syed Asif

To stay in compliance with regulations, pharmaceutical, medical, and biotech companies must create qualtiy SOPs that build in the regulatory requirements into actions and describe personal flow, internal flow, flow of information, and processing steps. Quality Operations Procedures for Pharmaceutical, API, and Biotechnology and the accompanying CD-ROM take into account all major international regulations, such as FDA, EU GMP, cGMP, GLP, PDA technical monographs, PDA technical reports, PMA concepts, journals of PDA, GCP, and industry standard ISO 9000, to be in compliance with documentation guidelines. No other resource deals exclusively with the key elements of quality control and quality assurance procedures for pharmaceutical operations and provides hands-on templates to be tailored to achieve global regulatory compliance.

The book provides instant answers about what to include in critical quality assurance and quality control SOPs and how to enhance productivity. The CD-ROM contains nineteen quality control and thirty-three quality assurance SOPs designed so that users can input them into their computers and use their Microsoft Word programs to edit and print these documents. The book ensures minimization of the number of documents, helping to reduce the nightmare-like aura that surrounds an FDA audit. The SOPs exclusively refer to the documents specially required for compliance; however, specific formats are not included to ensure that the electronic templates can be easily used by pharmaceutical, bulk pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotechnology industries.

The combination of text and CD-ROM presents a ready-to-use resource on the quality systems of aseptic pharmaceutical non-aseptic production and to provide general information and guidelines. They comprise a tool that can be used to develop a set of quality SOPs in order to support the road map established for the on-time successful start-up of the facility operation in compliance with the GMP requirements.

Pharmaceutical Care Issues of Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis: From Hospital to Community


This book presents concise, comprehensive summaries of topics necessary to understand rheumatoid arthritis (RA) management, aligned with patient needs, as a reference suitable for practitioners and students of all levels. Special attention is paid to the innovative RhMAT (Rheumatoid Arthritis Medication Assessment Tool), in addition to descriptions of the pharmacological management of RA, pharmacoeconomic and pharmacovigilance considerations, the benefits of seamless care, and case presentations.Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most common forms of inflammatory arthritis in the world, with a prevalence of 0.5 to 1%. While no cure has yet been established, modern biotechnology has enabled highly effective management, if treatment begins early. However, cost and side effects, such as immune suppression, continue to present barriers, and monitoring of patients is pivotal to safe and effective disease management.
Both hospital and community pharmacists are involved in RA patient management, and have responsibilities to this patient population. Identifying pharmaceutical care issues and ensuring that the patients are managed in accordance to best evidence-based medicine are paramount. Best care is delivered when pharmacists effectively communicate with each other, the prescribers and the multidisciplinary team members involved in the care of the patient. This book aims to tackle the various aspects of the management of RA patients across all the settings.

Heart Rate and Rhythm: Molecular Basis, Pharmacological Modulation and Clinical Implications


Pathological heart rhythms are a major health issue. In this book experts from various fields provide an important context for understanding the complicated molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie normal and pathophysiological cardiac rhythms.

Individual chapters cover a full range of topics, including the ionic basis of pacemaking, the role of specific channels and transporters in sinoatrial node pacemaking, altered intracellular Ca2+ handling in response to disease, computer modeling of the action potentials of pacemaker and working cardiomyocytes, genetic and molecular basis of inherited arrhythmias and a review of established and novel antiarrhythmic agents. Due to the key importance of the specialized pacemaker cells and tissue (sinoatrial and atrioventricular nodes) in maintaining heart rate and rhythm, special emphasis is placed on the peculiar electrophysiology of these cells.
