Current Developments in Biotechnology and Bioengineering: Bioprocesses, Bioreactors and Controls provides extensive coverage of new developments, state-of-the-art technologies, and potential future trends, reviewing industrial biotechnology and bioengineering practices that facilitate and enhance the transition of processes from lab to plant scale, which is becoming increasingly important as such transitions continue to grow in frequency. Focusing on industrial bioprocesses, bioreactors for bioprocesses, and controls for bioprocesses, this title reviews industrial practice to identify bottlenecks and propose solutions, highlighting that the optimal control of a bioprocess involves not only maximization of product yield, but also taking into account parameters such as quality assurance and environmental aspects. Describes industrial bioprocesses based on the reaction media Lists the type of bioreactors used for a specific bioprocess/application Outlines the principles of control systems in various bioprocesses

Tested and proven solutions to the challenges of biological drug product development Biological drug products play a central role in combating human diseases; however, developing new successful biological drugs presents many challenges, including labor intensive production processes, tighter regulatory controls, and increased market competition. This book reviews the current state of the science, offering readers a single resource that sets forth the fundamentals as well as tested and proven development strategies for biological drugs. Moreover, the book prepares readers for the challenges that typically arise during drug development, offering straightforward solutions to improve their ability to pass through all the regulatory hurdles and deliver new drug products to the market. Biological Drug Products begins with general considerations for the development of any biological drug product and then explores the strategies and challenges involved in the development of specific types of biologics. Divided into five parts, the book examines: Part 1: General Aspects Part 2: Proteins and Peptides Part 3: Vaccines Part 4: Novel Biologics Part 5: Product Administration/Delivery Each chapter has been prepared by one or more leading experts in biological drug development. Contributions are based on a comprehensive review and analysis of the current literature as well as the authors' first-hand experience developing and testing new drugs. References at the end of each chapter serve as a gateway to original research papers and reviews in the field. By incorporating lessons learned and future directions for research, Biological Drug Products enables pharmaceutical scientists and students to improve their success rate in developing new biologics to treat a broad range of human diseases.

The editors of this special volume would first like to thank all authors for their excellent contributions. We would also like to thank Prof. Dr. Thomas Scheper, Dr. Marion Hertel and Ulrike Kreusel for providing the opportunity to compose this volume and Springer for organizational and technical support. Tissue engineering represents one of the major emerging fields in modern b- technology; it combines different subjects ranging from biological and material sciences to engineering and clinical disciplines. The aim of tissue engineering is the development of therapeutic approaches to substitute diseased organs or tissues or improve their function. Therefore, three dimensional biocompatible materials are seeded with cells and cultivated in suitable systems to generate functional tissues. Many different aspects play a role in the formation of 3D tissue structures. In the first place the source of the used cells is of the utmost importance. To prevent tissue rejection or immune response, preferentially autologous cells are now used. In particular, stem cells from different sources are gaining exceptional importance as they can be differentiated into different tissues by using special media and supplements. In the field of biomaterials, numerous scaffold materials already exist but new composites are also being developed based on polymeric, natural or xenogenic sources. Moreover, a very important issue in tissue en- neering is the formation of tissues under well defined, controlled and reprod- ible conditions. Therefore, a substantial number of new bioreactors have been developed.

Production of Biologicals from Animal Cells in Culture reviews the state of the art in animal cell biotechnology, with emphasis on the sequence of events that occur when generating a biological from animal cells in culture. Methods that enable adjustment of nutrient feed streams into perfusion bioreactors so as to increase productivity are described. A number of issues are also addressed, such as the usefulness of the fingerprint method for cell characterization. Comprised of 135 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the problems and benefits of animal cell culture, followed by a discussion on the isolation of immortal murine macrophage cell lines. The reader is systematically introduced to the use of DNA fingerprinting to characterize cell banks; immortalization of cells with oncogenes; lipid metabolism of animal cells in culture; and energetics of glutaminolysis. Subsequent chapters explore serum-free and protein-free media; the physiology of animal cells; gene expression in animal cell systems; and animal cell bioreactors. The monitoring and assay of animal cell parameters are also considered, along with downstream processing and regulatory issues. This monograph will be of interest to students, practitioners, and investigators in the fields of microbiology and biotechnology.
