Since the first edition of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology was introduced over a decade ago, a not so subtle shift in the meaning of the term "biotechnology" has occurred. It has come to mean something very specific, namely (in the case of pharmaceuticals) the development of drug substances with large protein and polypeptide molecules. These substances are used to manipulate cellular DNA in order to produce a required molecule that is believed to have desirable properties in the treatment of a disease. Accordingly, the second edition of this work reflects on that change of definition by including all new material that deals directly with the development of these protein-based therapeutic substances.
