GCP Auditing. Methods and Experiences. Presented by an Expert Group of the German Society for Good Research Practice,. 2nd revised edition. 2007. Due to the ”Good Clinical Practice” (GCP) requirements the high demands of quality assurance internationally became an integral part in the conduct of clinical trials. The conducting of audits enables pharmaceutical companies, CROs, authorities etc. to verify whether the required standards are complied with. The methods used for the planning, conducting and evaluation of auditing measures are presented in detail. Thus this textbook provides the necessary material for both the audits as such and for their evaluation. Different fields of work are presented – investigator, clinic, laboratory and CROs. The subjects dealt with include the trial protocol, information for study participants, computer system validation, validation in clinical studies employing electronic data capture systems, audit schedule and audit report. The authors (members of a board of experts of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gute Forschungspraxis, DGGF; German Society for Good Research Practice) work in the pharmaceutical industry or at CROs and have had many years of experience in the quality assurance field. 192 pp. ISBN 10: 3-87193-356-2; ISBN 13: 978-3-87193-356-1. $110.00

Peptidomics in drug development. D. Gänshirt, F. Harms, S. Rohmann, P. Schulz-Knappe. 2005. Peptidomics is used in a wide and growing range of applications in academia, biotech, and pharmaceutical industry. Being driven by innovative technologies, this novel field utilises the information from genomic data to describe disease states and molecular mechanisms of drug action by analyzing the multitude of peptides in living systems. It is already clear that peptidomics is ideally suited for biomarker discovery. The precise diagnosis and personalized treatment of disease is the vision that motivates researchers to enter peptidomics. In this book the peptidomics pioneer BioVisionN gives insight into its unique technologies of differential display analysis of peptides and illustrates appropriate bioinformatics- and data mining tools. They also describe some of the most prominent medical applications of this rapidly emerging technology in CNS diseases, cancer, and diabetes. In addition the Health Care Competence Center – HC3, a specialist for innovative health care strategies, highlights the role and future perspectives of peptidomics in drug development as determined in a global primary data evaluation in the pharmaceutical industry. 152 pp, hardcover.
