About this book


In Drug Targeting: Strategies, Methods, and Protocls, Gillian E. Francis and Cristina Delgado have assembled an outstanding collection of leading-edge protocols for drug targeting studies. In addition to providing detailed step-by-step instructions, the highly experienced authors review the principal current targeting strategies, discuss how to build the constructs, examine theoretical considerations relevant to solid tumors, and describe experimental and clinical applications of targeted drug delivery systems. Also presented are new chemical and biological approaches to the preparation of targeted biopharmaceuticals, including ribonuclease-antibody chimeras, bispecific antibodies, enzyme-antibody conjugates, and folate-bearing conjugates. Applications include the targeting of myocardial infarctions using liposomal systems, the use of monoclonal antibodies to target malaria and HIV-infected cells, the targeting of fusion proteins to leukemias and lymphomas, the use of antioxidant enzyme-antibody conjugates to target the pulmonary endothelium, as well as methods addressing both the active and passive targeting of tumors.
Comprehensive and innovative, Drug Targeting: Strategies, Methods, and Protocols documents in practical detail the major new chemical and biological targeting methods now being used to produce today's emerging rich array of novel diagnostic agents and promising biopharmaceuticals.
