Book Description

In this volume, experts from academe, industry, and public health institutes discuss the issues involved in toxicology evaluation, safety assessment, and regulation of biotechnology-derived drugs, foods, and plant products. Coverage includes recombinant DNA agents, monoclonal antibodies, recombinant hormones and other proteins, biotechnology-derived drug delivery systems, gene therapy for genetic diseases, and genetically engineered plants and plant products. Full consideration is given to key methodological issues in product development and testing, such as use of "in vitro" and "in vivo" toxicology tests, choice of animal models, and use of transgenic animal models and genetically altered species to study human diseases. The book includes an appendix describing available animal models and a glossary of terms, definitions, and acronyms.
