Future Strategies for Drug Delivery with Particulate Systems.
Edited by Julia E. Diederichs & Rainer H. Müller. 1998.

Research on particulate delivery systems is an important discipline of the pharmaceutical sciences, being performed in many academic and industrial laboratories all around the world. Particulate systems offer a large potential for the controlled delivery of drugs, diagnostic agents, antigens, and genetic material. Additionally they are of increasing interest for the controlled delivery of active compounds in cosmetics. The book presents trends and future strategies in these fields using: liposomes • emulsions • polymeric nanoparticles • solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNTM, LipopearlsTM) • nanosuspensions of poorly soluble & bioavailable drugs • particulate diagnostics. In this book, European pharmaceutical research groups at the universities of Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and Utrecht present their current research activities and outline the strategies for controlled delivery of the future. Contents: Nanoparticles and Liposomes for Drug Targeting • Liquid Based Drug Delivery Systems for Peptide and Protein Drug Delivery • Interaction of Plasma Proteins with Liposomes • Influence of Surface Properties on Adsorption Patterns and Protein Conformation • Iron Oxides as Contrast Agents in Magnetic Resonance Lymphography • Solid Liquid Nanoparticles, Nanosuspensions and Liposomes for Pharmaceutical Cosmetic Applications • Liposomes as Drug Carrier for Diagnostics, Cytostatics and Genetic Material • Strategies for Site Specific, Time and Rate Controlled Delivery of Drugs, Genes and Antigenes • Index. Softcover, 194 pp., 68 figs., 12 tables.

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

Genetic Testing.
Policy Issues for the New Millennium.
Science and Innovation Series.
OECD. 2001.
Genetic tests are being developed at an impressive rate and a significant number have already reached the market. Substantial involvement of the private sector has led to unprecedented growth in commercial genetic testing services and in trade of such services. This trend is expected to increase as knowledge gained from the mapping of the human genome and of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) is applied to the identification of disease-causing genes and of inherited differences in drug response. The potential socio-economic and ethical impacts are staggering. This report provides a state-of-the-art review of advances in genetic testing and of main international policy concerns drawing from the OECD workshop on “Genetic Testing: Policy Issues for the New Millennium” held in Vienna on 23-25 February 2000. Paperback, 76 pp.

Guide to the Preperation, Use and Quality Assurance of Blood ComponentsGuide to the Preparation, Use and Quality Assurance of Blood Components. 9th Edition.
Council of Europe. 2002.
In the absence of substitutes, the use of blood components remains essential in therapy. This new edition presents a compendium of measures designed to ensure the safety, efficacy and quality of blood components and is particularly intended for all those working in blood transfusion services. In accordance with the approach recommended by the Council of Europe, the guide is based on the premise of voluntary, non-remunerated blood donation. It also describes the different blood components and gives information on their clinical indications and possible side effects. Adopted in 1995 as a technical appendix to Recommendation no. R (95) 15 of the Council of Europe, this guide continues to be the 'Golden Standard' for blood transfusion services and forms the basis for many national guidelines, in Europe and outside. For example, in 2000 Australia mandated the guide in its standard for blood components. In this 8th edition, chapter 12 on red cells obtained by aphaeresis has been completely overhauled. Where necessary, chapters have been revised in order to take into account what can be achieved with new technology. For example, in chapter 1 on selection of donors the requirements for aphaeresis donors have been updated. The Guide to the Preparation, Use and Quality Assurance of Blood Components will be of interest to blood transfusion centers, legislators, health personnel and all those working in the field of blood transfusion. Paperback, 267 pp.

International Classification of Diseases for Oncology. (ICD-O). 3rd Edition. 
WHO. 2001.
Now in its third edition, the International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O) has been used for nearly 25 years as the standard tool for coding diagnoses of neoplasms in tumor and cancer registrars and in pathology laboratories. ICD-O is a dual classification with coding systems for both topography and morphology. The topography code describes the site of origin of the neoplasm and uses the same 3-character and 4-character categories as in the neoplasm section of Chapter II, ICD-10. The morphology code describes the characteristics of the tumor itself, including its cell type and biologic activity. The book has five main sections. 1. general instructions for using the coding systems and rules for their implementation in tumor registries and pathology laboratories; 2. numerical list of topography codes - unchanged from the previous edition; 3. numerical list of morphology codes - introduces several new terms; 4. alphabetical index - gives codes for both topography and morphology and includes selected tumor-like lesions and conditions; 5. guide to differences in morphology codes between the second and third editions- includes lists of all new code numbers, new terms and synonyms added to existing code definitions, terms that changed morphology code, terms for conditions now considered malignant, deleted terms, and terms that changed behavior code. In preparing this new edition, the editors have made a special effort to change as few terms as possible, to add new terms at empty spaces, and to avoid reuse of previously assigned codes. To the greatest extent possible, ICD-O uses the nomenclature published in the WHO series, International Histological Classification of Tumours.
