5. Pharmaceutical Stability Testing to Support Global Markets (Biotechnology: Pharmaceutical Aspects Book 12)

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B008BB7KIA&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=IN&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=techpublish 21&language=en IN

The International Conference of Harmonization (ICH) has done extension work to harmionize the guidance on stability studies through a stability guideline Q1A (R2). Still, pharmaceutical community has continued to discuss to further improve requirements, streamlining practices, improving processes in order to bring safe and effective medical supplies to the patients around the world.

In 2007, the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Stability Focus Group organized two workshops – the Stability Workshop and the Degradation Mechanism Workshop. These meetings attracted many industry scientists as well as representatives from several regulatory agencies in the world to discuss important topics related to pharmaceutical stability practices. The author of this book has worked with speakers to assemble a collection of 30 articles from presentations given at these two meetings, mainly the Stability Workshop. This book will be beneficial to pharmaceutical professionals in providing guidance and up-to-date information for building quality stability programs.

6. Bottle of Lies : Ranbaxy and the Dark Side of Indian Pharma

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=9353450446&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=IN&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=techpublish 21&language=en IN

In 2004, Dinesh Thakur, a senior employee of Ranbaxy, then India’s largest pharma company, discovered a terrible secret.Ranbaxy had been fabricating the test results of their drugs,endangering millions of patients. Thakur resigned and became a whistleblower to the US Food and Drug Administration, one of the regulators Ranbaxy had been lying to, and ultimately brought the multibillion-dollar behemoth to its knees. This is the sensational account of the high-stakes chase to bring Ranbaxy to book and the fall from grace of one of corporate India’s biggest success stories. But the rot in Indian pharma isn’t confined to Ranbaxy alone.

In this book, investigative journalist Katherine Eban relies on over 20,000 FDA documents and interviews with over 240 people to show how fraud and trickery are deeply entrenched in much of the industry in India, and raises troubling questions about some of its biggest names – Wockhardt, Dr Reddy’s, Glenmark and RPG Life Sciences. Filled with shocking and eye-opening details, this book lays bare the ugly truth of Indian pharma. It will make you view every pill you take with foreboding and suspicion.

8. Statistical Applications for Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) in the Pharmaceutical Industry (Statistics for Biology and Health)

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B06WLMSHDM&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=IN&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=techpublish 21&language=en IN

This book examines statistical techniques that are critically important to Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Control (CMC) activities. Statistical methods are presented with a focus on applications unique to the CMC in the pharmaceutical industry.
The target audience consists of statisticians and other scientists who are responsible for performing statistical analyses within a CMC environment. Basic statistical concepts are addressed in Chapter 2 followed by applications to specific topics related to development and manufacturing. The mathematical level assumes an elementary understanding of statistical methods. The ability to use Excel or statistical packages such as Minitab, JMP, SAS, or R will provide more value to the reader.

The motivation for this book came from an American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) short course on statistical methods applied to CMC applications presented by four of the authors. One of the course participants asked us for a good reference book, and the only book recommended was written over 20 years ago by Chow and Liu (1995). We agreed that a more recent book would serve a need in our industry.

Since we began this project, an edited book has been published on the same topic by Zhang (2016). The chapters in Zhang discuss statistical methods for CMC as well as drug discovery and nonclinical development. We believe our book complements Zhang by providing more detailed statistical analyses and examples.
