This Fourth Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to take account of international developments in pharaceutical chemistry and to maintain the position of Practical Pharmaceutical Chemistry as the leading University textbook in the field of pharaceutical analysis and quality control. Part 2 deals with physical techniques of analysis for more advanced courses. It gives a broad coverage of the most widely used techniques in quantative chromatography. The treatmentof spectroscopy and radiopharmaceuticals has also been increased. Thre are additional chapters on the contribution and role of physical methods of analysis in the various stages of drug development; and a series of workshop-style exercises, illustrating the application of spectroscopic techniques in structural elucidation and verification of identity. Users of the two volumes will welcome the internationalisation of the text, with examples based on drugs and dosage forms that are widespread and in commun use in human medicine in Britain, continental Europe and North America. Additionally there is some reference to veterinary pharmaceuticals where they provide appropriate examples.
?This book introduces some emerging functional foods that are natural resources with tremendous promise as nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals. The author considers biodiversity and bioprospecting as a response to food security issues, drug-resistance, nutrition-poor diets and other problems, exploring the prospects of several under-utilized nutrients and bioactive repositories. Readers will discover biochemical makeups, validated health benefits, explanations of underlying mechanisms, hurdles in the path of popularity and promotion strategies. Chapters explore particular plants, seeds and fruits including the strawberry guava, opuntia fruits, the Carissa genus, grape seeds, quinoa and the milk thistle (Silybum), amongst others. They are considered as food sources where possible and from the perspective of the roles they can play in complementary and alternative medicine, such as in wound healing, antimicrobial activity, gastroprotective activity in treatment of cancers and as natural antioxidant sources. This rich compilation holds plausible solutions to a range of current issues and it endorses the much-needed goal of sustainability in terms of diet and drugs. It paves the path for further research and development on hitherto obscure natural resources. Scientists working in the area of food development, phytochemical and antioxidant analysis, bioprospecting of low-profile foods and in complementary and alternative medicine will find this work particularly valuable. It will also be of interest to the general reader with an interest in food science, food security, phytochemicals and functional food studies.
Math is a critical element of pharmaceutical care and a sound knowledge of math concepts is key to succeeding as a pharmacy technician. The second edition of PHARMACEUTICAL CALCULATIONS FOR PHARMACY TECHNICIANS: A WORKTEXT provides an effective, hands-on guide to essential math skills, from simple addition and subtraction to formulas used in dosage calculations and basic business math. This highly practical reference helps students develop strong math skills to perform accurate calculations with confidence and prevent medication errors. In addition to informative content, the text includes abundant examples of medication labels, medical forms, and other images to help students apply professional skills in real-life situations. Now thoroughly updated, this edition is more useful than ever, providing an invaluable resource for students and professional pharmacy technicians alike.
