A comprehensive compilation on plasma protein production from the leading experts in the field, Production of Plasma Proteins for Therapeutic Use presents manufacturing, testing methods, and regulatory issues for plasma-derived therapeutics, a global US10 billion industry. Culling material that until now have only been available in scattered forms across journals and books, the text features twenty-three detailed protein-by-protein chapters written by the major manufacturers of plasma protein products, addressing all aspects of these proteins, including biology, clinical use, manufactu.
