The development of suitable assays, the integration of appropriate technology, and the effective management of the essential infrastructure are all critical to the success of any high-throughput screening (HTS) endeavor. However, few scientists have the multidisciplinary experience needed to control all aspects of an HTS drug discovery project. A Practical Guide to Assay Development and High-Throughput Screening in Drug Discovery integrates the experience of diverse experts who offer fundamental and practical guidance across numerous situations.
The book first discusses assay developments for important target classes such as protein kinases and phosphatases, proteases, nuclear receptors, G protein-coupled receptors, ion channels, and heat shock proteins. It next examines assay developments for cell viability, apoptosis, and infectious diseases. The contributors explore the application of emerging technologies and systems, including image-based high content screening, RNA interference, and primary cells. Finally, they discuss the essential components of the integrated HTS process, such as screening automation, compound library management, the screening of natural products from botanical sources, and screening informatics.
Designed to motivate researchers to bring further advances to the field, this volume provides practical guidance on how to initiate, validate, optimize, and manage a bioassay intended to screen large collections of compounds. Drawing on the knowledge from experts actively involved in assay development and HTS, this is a resource that is both comprehensive and focused.

Destined to become every regulatory director's essential desktop companion
rofessionals working to submit major documents to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are guaranteed to encounter numerous unexpected and daunting hurdles. Guidebook for Drug Regulatory Submissions offers a readable and clearly written road map for effective submission of documents for required regulatory reviews during drug development.
Demystifying this complex, high-stakes process, author and nationally recognized drug regulation expert Sandy Weinberg presents professionals with authoritative tips, tools, and advice including suggestions for preparation, checklists for submission, an FDA evaluation tool for review, and copies of relevant FDA guidelines.
As well, vital information is provided on the most common types of submissions, including:
Orphan Drug Applications
Investigatory New Drug Applications (INDAs)
New Drug Applications (NDAs)
Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs)
This reference also explores the pressures affecting the industry and the general public, as well as how these pressures will change the general nature and specific aspects of the submissions process over the near future. In addition, retired Canadian trade consul and regulatory consultant Carl Rockburne guest-authors a chapter comparing the FDA process to the four other major regulatory environments of Canada, the European Union, Japan, and Australia.
Guidebook for Drug Regulatory Submissions is more than a useful guide—it is an essential tool to be kept on the desk of every regulatory director, submissions manager, vice president of Regulatory Affairs, and Food and Drug Administration reviewer responsible for the process of drug regulatory submissions.
