This book reviews the history, regulatory status, pharmacopeial specifications, and harmonization of pharmaceutical excipients in the United States and Europe, and provides a comprehensive understanding of the current scientific basis for safety evaluation and risk assessment.
Examines excipients as a unique class of products and explores new procedures for determining toxicity
A timely and unique addition to the pharmaceutical literature, containing over 570 citations that support and enhance the text, Excipient Toxicity and Safety
identifies the differences between excipients (inactive ingredients), food ingredients, and drug products
evaluates issues of dose administration, species selection, and study design for various routes of exposure
provides detailed information on the historical uses of excipients in drug formulations
clarifies the Safety Committee of the International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council's (IPEC) guidelines and technical specifications for conducting tests for each route of exposure
explains how data generated in toxicity models are applied to identify hazards in drug formulations
details exposure assessment to link hazard identification with risk
considers the requirements and importance of purity specifications
and much more
Excipient Toxicity and Safety is a blue-ribbon reference ideal for pharmacists; toxicologists; pharmacologists; analytical chemists; quality control, quality assurance, and regulatory compliance managers; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.


Genetically Modified Organisms, A Biosafety Manual

RRP $273.99

For a number of years the promise of biotechnology has been dimmed by concerns over the intrinsic safety of transgenic organisms. Although considerable knowledge of the properties of recombinant systems and a vast volume of data gathered from different application of biotechnology are now available, these concerns are still evident. In the developing world, there are also fears that such countries might be used as testing grounds for recombinant products. Considerations of this nature have often overshadowed the benefits these countries might derive from the application of genetic engineering.
In response to these concerns, UNIDO, together with the United Nations Environment Programme and the World Health Organization, formed in 1985 the Informal Working Group on Biosafety. In 1991 the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations also joined the Group. The present volume was commissioned by the Group and is intended to help scientists and regulators to conceptualize the major issues underlying biological safety as well as to understand how these affect policies to regulate biotechnology.

Recently there has been a growing awareness of the need to conduct sound and inclusive interdisciplinary research in key academic and applied areas. Interdisciplinary Food Safety Research answers the increasing calls to better understand and analyze the impact of food safety efforts. By collecting a wide range of multidisciplinary examples, the text identifies important areas of research while providing a resource for future group-building activities.
Topics covered include:
Food research safety teams
E. coli contamination in a beef slaughterhouse
Costs of pathogen reduction strategies for Australian beef slaughter plants
Food safety and quality assurance in the food chain
Phytosanitary barriers to trade
Food safety issues in developing nations
Product liability and food safety
Consumer acceptance of irradiated meats
Food safety control for retail butchers
Bases of food safety concerns
Future needs
This book encourages comprehensive research by recognizing significant early efforts and considers a range of food safety problems, research techniques, and solutions. The use of global examples and interdisciplinary team-based reports, along with information from the fields of academia, government, and industry, makes Interdisciplinary Food Safety Research an important resource for enhancing the safety of our food supply.


Ethnic American Food Today

RRP $332.99

Ethnic American Food Today introduces readers to the myriad ethnic food cultures in the U.S. today. Entries are organized alphabetically by nation and present the background and history of each food culture along with explorations of the place of that food in mainstream American society today. Many of the entries draw upon ethnographic research and personal experience, giving insights into the meanings of various ethnic food traditions as well as into what, how, and why people of different ethnicities are actually eating today. The entries look at foodways-the network of activities surrounding food itself-as well as the beliefs and aesthetics surrounding that food, and the changes that have occurred over time and place. They also address stereotypes of that food culture and the culture's influence on American eating habits and menus, describing foodways practices in both private and public contexts, such as restaurants, groceries, social organizations, and the contemporary world of culinary arts. Recipes of representative or iconic dishes are included. This timely two-volume encyclopedia addresses the complexity-and richness-of both ethnicity and food in America today.


Infrastructure And Safety In A Collaborative World

RRP $409.99

The book investigates how, and which, forgiving road environments (FOR) andÿself-explaining road measures (SER) will contribute to increasing road safety and also increase network efficiency on the road.

It presents both the general approach and the methodology for generating the possible FOR and SER measures. The book further discusses the prioritization and the testing methodologies, as well as the designing VMS methodology.

The next parts of the book present a few important examples: lane departure warning systems; intelligent speed adaptation systems and perception enhancement studies;ÿdesigns of European pictorial signs, e.g. for VMS but also examples of designs of European road wordings; and finally how personalization can take place of VMS signs and wordings for the individual driver.

The last part shows the final evaluation of FOR and SER, andÿdetailed Multiple Criterion Analysis and Cost Benefit Analyses are performed on a number of FOR and SER measures. This results in the development of a set of guidelines, conclusions and recommendations for the future.
