Chirality in Drug Research

Approx Price: Rs 6,015 / Piece 

Chirality in Drug Research Eric Francotte (Editor), Wolfgang Lindner (Editor), Raimund Mannhold (Series Editor), Hugo Kubinyi (Series Editor), Gerd Folkers (Series Editor)370 pages

Description :

Divided into the three main sections of synthesis, analysis and drug development, this handbook covers all stages of the drug development process, including large-scale synthesis and purification of chirally pure pharmaceuticals.
The two editors from academia and a major pharmaceutical company have assembled an experienced, international team who provide first-hand practical advice and report previously unpublished data.

In the first section, the isolation of chiral drugs from natural sources, their production in enzymatic processes and the resolution of racemic mixtures in preparative chromatography are outlined in separate chapters. For the section on qualitative and quantitative analysis, enantioselective chromatographic methods are presented as well as optical methods and CE-MS, while the final section deals with the pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and metabolic aspects of chiral drugs, devoting whole chapters to stereoselective drug binding and modeling chiral drug-receptor interactions.
With its unique industry-relevant aspects, this is a must for medicinal and pharmaceutical chemists

After postdoctoral work at the University of Geneva, he joined the Central Research Laboratories at Ciba-Geigy, where he was working on optically active polymers. He is now Director and Head of Separations at the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research in Basel (Switzerland). He is also an editor of the Wiley journal "Chirality". His major interests include development and applications of chiral stationary phases for the separation of stereoisomers on an analytical and preparative scale.

Wolfgang Lindner received his PhD degree in Organic Chemistry from the University of Graz (Austria). After several academic positions, including a period at the FDA in Bethesda (USA), he was appointed the chair in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Vienna (Austria). He is also the editor of the Journal of Chromatography B, and the current president of the Austrian Society of Analytical Chemistry. His major interests lie in enantioselective separation techniques, including LC, CE, membranes, extractions and in stereoselective pharmacokinetics.

Assay Development and High-Throughput Screening in Drug Disc

Approx Price: Rs 11,035 / Piece(s) 
A Practical Guide to Assay Development and High-Throughput Screening in Drug Discovery Author(s): Taosheng Chen 291 Pages | 83 Illustrations Features
    • Integrates the knowledge of experts in biology, chemistry, informatics, instrumentation, automation, technology development, and project management
    • Enables researchers in industrial and academic settings to find the most efficient way to carry a project from start to finish
    • Identifies critical targets that are of relevance to drug discovery
    • Discusses the components of the HTS process and provides step-by-step instructions
    • Examines emerging technologies and systems



The development of suitable assays, the integration of appropriate technology, and the effective management of the essential infrastructure are all critical to the success of any high-throughput screening (HTS) endeavor. However, few scientists have the multidisciplinary experience needed to control all aspects of an HTS drug discovery project. A Practical Guide to Assay Development and High-Throughput Screening in Drug Discovery integrates the experience of diverse experts who offer fundamental and practical guidance across numerous situations. 

The book first discusses assay developments for important target classes such as protein kinases and phosphatases, proteases, nuclear receptors, G protein-coupled receptors, ion channels, and heat shock proteins. It next examines assay developments for cell viability, apoptosis, and infectious diseases. The contributors explore the application of emerging technologies and systems, including image-based high content screening, RNA interference, and primary cells. Finally, they discuss the essential components of the integrated HTS process, such as screening automation, compound library management, the screening of natural products from botanical sources, and screening informatics.


Designed to motivate researchers to bring further advances to the field, this volume provides practical guidance on how to initiate, validate, optimize, and manage a bioassay intended to screen large collections of compounds. Drawing on the knowledge from experts actively involved in assay development and HTS, this is a resource that is both comprehensive and focused.
