USP NF 2009 (United States Pharmacopeia 32 / National Formulary 27)

The United States Pharmacopeia–National Formulary and its Supplements become official six months after being released to the public. The USP–NF, which is released on November 1 of each year, becomes official on May 1 of the following year.

This change was adopted to give users more time to bring their methods and procedures into compliance with new and revised USP–NF requirements.

The table below describes the new official dates. The 2008 USP31–NF26, and the Supplements and Interim Revision Announcements (IRAs) to that edition, will be official until May 1, 2009, at which time the USP32–NF27 becomes official.

Pharmaceutical Microbiology

The textbook on `Pharmaceutical Microbiology` has been adequately developed and expanded according to the AICTE- Approved Syllabus-2000 meant for the Pharmacy Degree Programme across all the Indian Universities, and others abroad offering similar curricula.

Specific attention has been duly paid to the presentation of each chapter that essentially includes: brief introduction, theoretical aspects, classification, neat and vivid diagrammatic illustrations of figures-graphics-equipments, lucid explanations, supportive classical examples, and profusely supplemented with explanatory`foot notes`-references in addition to further reading bibliography.

The text content runs over ten chapters that may prove to be of paramount interest and enormous readability not only confined to the B.Pharm., students but also to various M.Sc., academic curricula in such disciplines as: Food Microbiology, Environmental Science, Microbiology etc.

Key Features IncludeConcise and exhaustive presentation of scientific informations from several sources.A wealth of theoretical information that opens newer possibilities.Detailed classification of various microbial aspects.Pharmaceutical assays and methodologies.Comprehensive index includes significant terminologies.Well documented statement of facts.


Non-Prescription Medicines 2nd Edition

This revised edition assesses the range of non-prescription, over-the-counter medicines that can be recommended for the most frequently encountered minor illnesses. The first edition has been updated to reflect changes in the legal status and availability of products and new opinions on and approaches to treatment. A new section on emergency hormonal contraception is also included. The information is presented in a structured formulary format with products described both generically and by brand name along with supplier details. Each chapter also contains a summary of key points with suggestions regarding the most appropriate products. The book should enable pharmacists, GPs, nurses and other healthcare professionals to make well-informed recommendations and to give patients and customers sound advice on non-prescription medicines.

Drug-Drug Interactions: Scientific and Regulatory Perspectives, Volume 43 (Advances in Pharmacology)

Drug–Drug Interactions is a comprehensive review of the scientific and regulatory perspectives of drug–drug interactions from the point-of-view of academia, industry, and government regulatory agencies. This book is intended for professionals in the pharmaceutical industry, health care, and governmental regulatory agencies. Topics of interest include the mechanistic understanding of drug–drug interactions, the prediction of drug–drug interaction potential of new drugs, and the avoidance of clinically significant drug–drug interaction in patients.

Key Features

* Provides useful references on the science of drug-drug interactions
* Describes in a basic and comprehensive manner drug-drug interactions from the mechanistic viewpoint
* Contains original data from academic and industrial laboratories
* Presents an overview of regulatory agency positions

Pharmaceutical Drug Analysis

During the past two decades, there have been magnificent and significant advances in both analytical instrumentation and computerized data handling devices across the globe. In this specific context the remarkable proliferation of windows-based computer software stretched overwhelmingly towards instrument control, real time data handling abilities and the ultimate usage of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) are surprisingly noteworthy.

Pharmaceutical Drug Analysis in its present form essentially comprises six parts containing in all 32 well-elaborated chapters predominantly dealing with the set of descriptive analytical methodologies developed to control and assure the quality of the final marketed product; and, therefore, includes both qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis to help in the identification as well as purity of the product.

The main purpose of this textbook is to discuss in an explicit and lucid manner several of the newer methods that now find rather wider application in the domain of pharmaceutical analysis. The basic principle of each technique is critically treated with emphasis on factors that directly affect its proper and judicious application to various analytical problems. An in-depth knowledge of these principles, instrumentations, modus operandi, experimental parameters, and sample preparation procedures in order to optimize the performance procedure of typical assay of pharmaceutical secondary products i.e., dosage forms, calculations etc., along with cognate assays from the Official Compendia have been included profusely.

Undergraduate and postgraduate students of pharmaceutical drug analysis, quality assurance chemists, industrial trainees, bulk-drug professionals and those in related disciplines earnestly requiring a substantial fundamental understanding and knowledge of the subject will certainly find this a much needed suitable compilation for reading and reference.

The broad coverage included in each of the selected analytical techniques would render Pharmaceutical Drug Analysis to be an useful source of ideas, inspiration for research, and developing newer practical solutions to problems in the ever expanding field of pharmaceutical analysis.
