The Era of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Data Science in the Pharmaceutical Industry

The Era of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Data Science in the Pharmaceutical Industry

The Era of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Science in the Pharmaceutical Industry examines the drug discovery process, assessing how new technologies have improved effectiveness. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are considered the future for a wide range of disciplines and industries, including the pharmaceutical industry. In an environment where producing a single approved drug costs millions and takes many years of rigorous testing prior to its approval, reducing costs and time is of high interest. This book follows the journey that a drug company takes when producing a therapeutic, from the very beginning to ultimately benefitting a patient's life. This comprehensive resource will be useful to those working in the pharmaceutical industry, but will also be of interest to anyone doing research in chemical biology, computational chemistry, medicinal chemistry and bioinformatics.

Essential Enzyme Kinetics

Essential Enzyme Kinetics

Essential Enzyme Kinetics: A Textbook for Molecular Life Scientists describes the theoretical basis and best-practice approaches for using initial-rate, fast reaction, and kinetic isotope effect experiments to define enzyme catalysis. Because a detailed knowledge of enzyme transition-states is the main driver for the rational design of slow, tight-binding inhibitors destined to become tomorrow's small-molecule drugs, Essential Enzyme Kinetics is the must-have reference for chemists, biochemists, and pharmacologists intent on pursuing careers in Big Pharma. Given the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary drug development, this book provides a lucid short-course that will also benefit nonspecialists seeking to understand the scope and reach of modern enzyme kinetics.

Probiotics in Mental Health

Probiotics in Mental Health

Author: Colin R. Martin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/03/2021

The concept that the gut and brain are intricately linked is widely accepted not just within the lay community but increasingly within scientific and therapeutic circles as well. Terms such as heartache and gut wrenching are more than mere metaphor, they represent key fundamental aspects of human experience which all individuals will invariably endure from time to time. The relationship between the gut and brain is complex but fundamental to health and wellbeing. Increasing and compelling evidence supports the existence of a relationship between the health and status of the gut and the manifestation of significant psychopathology. Uniquely within the field of mental health and psychiatry, the role of gut flora and probiotics in both the understanding and treatment of mental illness represents an emerging science whether the potential for therapeutic intervention, through the use of probiotics, offers an opportunity to determine efficacy within a coherent evidence-based model of both action and pathology or, moreover, offers interventions that are comparatively benign compared to the side-effect profile associated with most drugs used to treat mental illness. Probiotics in Mental Health examines the role of probiotics in a range of clinical presentations associated with significant psychopathology and facilitates a reconsideration of how mental illness may be conceptualised within a coherent gut-brain model of health and wellbeing. Under the rubric of enhancing wellbeing rather than dwelling on illness and disease, this exciting new volume not only comprises the latest evidence in the field but also advocates an approach characterised by the understanding of mental disorder within an evidence-based model and the pursuit of mental health and wellbeing through the most benign of interventions.

Palladium Assisted Synthesis of Heterocycles

Palladium Assisted Synthesis of Heterocycles

Author: Navjeet Kaur Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/03/2021

This book is a compilation of the recent applications of palladium catalysts in organic synthesis. The book demonstrates that it is a highly dynamic research field. This methodology has emerged as a powerful tool for the efficient and chemoselective synthesis of heterocyclic molecules. In the past few years, several strategies have been pointed out to pursue more efficient, sustainable, and environment friendly chemical processes. Among those strategies, catalysis and the design of new processes that avoid the use of toxic reagents have been the focus of intense research.
