Product description

From the Back Cover

Molecular therapeutics incorporates genetics, recombinant DNA technology, biochemistry, protein production and purification, microbiology, molecular biology, immunology, pathobiology, and biotechnology. It addresses the treatment of human beings with “new drugs” and poses a range of ethical issues, particularly with respect to clinical trials, animal models, financial considerations and availability of treatment.

Recent advances in molecular therapeutics means that many of these cutting edge methods will soon be ready to be considered for clinical trial. It is essential that scientists, doctors, nurses and allied health professionals involved in these novel therapies understand how these techniques have evolved, what their benefits and drawbacks might be, the ethical issues associated with them and what their potential is for the future.

Targeted at postgraduate and undergraduate biomedical, allied health, medical and life science students, ‘Molecular Therapeutics’ provides an invaluable introduction to this rapidly evolving field.
