Detection and Quantification of Antibodies to Biopharmaceuticals

by Michael G. Tovey

The definitive book on the neutralization of recombinant biopharmaceuticalsRecombinant biopharmaceuticals are an important tool for treating a range of illnesses; however, their efficacy can be severely impaired by their immunogenicity. When introduced into the body, these pharmaceuticals can cause the immune system to produce anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) that neutralize their effects.The first and only book to cover neutralization in connection with biopharmaceuticals and the measurement and application of neutralizing antibodies in modern medicine at any real length, Detection and Quantification of Antibodies to Biopharmaceuticals: Practical and Applied Considerations offers a comprehensive and in-depth look at all the principal aspects of the detection and quantification of antibodies that are essential to understanding and responding to the challenges they present.Bringing together a large-scale review of neutralization and biopharmaceuticals and the ability to measure, detect, and apply antibodies to modern science and medicine with international regulatory perspectives, the expectations of regulatory authorities, and the strengths and weaknesses of various assays, the book describes several novel ideas for detecting ADAs.Designed to serve as a resource for biopharmaceutical drug development, the book provides biotechnology companies and pharmaceutical drug development specialists, as well as non-experts, with key insights into the design, optimization, and qualification of assays, the establishment of sampling strategies, the choice of appropriate assay end-points, and data analysis for the detection and quantification of neutralizing antibodies.

Detection of Malingering during Head Injury Litigation

by Cecil R. Reynolds Arthur Macneill Horton Jr.

Increased public awareness of traumatic brain injuries has fueled a number of significant developments: on the one hand, more funding and more research related to these injuries and their resulting deficits; on the other, the possibility of higher stakes in personal injury suits--and more reasons for individuals to feign injury. Expanding both the conceptual and clinical knowledge base on the subject, the Second Edition of Detection of Malingering during Head Injury Litigation offers the latest detection tools and techniques for veteran and novice alike. As in its initial incarnation, this practical revision demonstrates how to combine clinical expertise, carefully-gathered data, and the use of actuarial models as well as common sense in making sound evaluations and reducing ambiguous results. And, the book navigates the reader through the many caveats that come with the job, beginning with the scenario that an individual may be malingering despite having an actual brain injury. Among the updated features: *Specific chapters on malingering on the Halstead-Reitan, Luria-Nebraska, and MMPI-2. *A framework for distinguishing genuine from factitious PTSD in head injury cases. *Detailed information regarding performance on the WMT, MSVT, and NV-MSVT by children with developmental disabilities. *Guidelines for explaining symptom validity testing to the trier of fact. *Entirely new chapters on mild TBI and on malingering of PTSD symptoms in the context of TBI litigation. Professional neuropsychologists and forensic psychologists will appreciate this new edition of Detection of Malingering during Head Injury Litigation as an invaluable source of refinements to their craft, and improvement as an expert witness.

Detective Stories

by Peter Washington

Now, in the appealing and collectible Pocket Classics format, an anthology of beloved, classic detective stories--riveting and irresistibly addictive tales of crimes and those who unravel them. Beginning with modern masters such as Sara Paretsky, Ruth Rendell, and Ian Rankin, this collection works its way back through the golden age of the 1920s and '30s to the genre's source in Edgar Allan Poe and Arthur Conan Doyle. The famous detectives who stalk these pages range from the brilliant and eccentric (Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Poe's C. Auguste Dupin) to the deceptively unlikely (G. K. Chesterton's humble priest, Father Brown; and Agatha Christie's tweedy spinster, Miss Marple); from the tough-guy private eyes created by Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler to accidental bystanders, such as the perceptive neighbors in Susan Glaspell's haunting "A Jury of Her Peers. " From classic whodunits featuring Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason and Georges Simenon's Inspector Maigret to Jorge Luis Borges's postmodern tribute to Poe in "Death and the Compass," the stories in this volume will tantalize, perplex, and amaze.

Detective Stories from the Bible

by J. Ellsworth Kalas

When we think of a detective story, we often think of murder mysteries. But the Bible contains some different kinds of detective stories. How is it, for instance, that some of the key personalities in the Bible story slip into the story almost unnoticed--like Judah, for example, an ancestor of King David and Jesus Christ. How did the symbolism of blood in Communion get started? When Cain was warned that the ground would no longer yield for him because he had killed his brother--did that set a precedent for connecting moral behavior with environmental harshness? These themes and many others are investigated in this study, accompanied by a discussion guide.
