Biotechnological Innovations in Health Care provides insight and information on how modern biotechnology may be applied to produce useful medicinal products. This book begins with a general introduction to biotechnology, summarizing its historical development, possible role in health care, and impact on society. The stages involved in developing and producing a medicinal product and general elements that a licensing file of a biotechnological medicinal product should contain are also deliberated. The rest of the chapters are devoted to several case studies that commences with the initial concept of examining the need for the product followed by product evaluation through discussion of the pre-clinical and clinical trials. This publication is valuable to students and researchers with a basic understanding of restriction enzymes, genetic manipulation procedures and principles underpinning cell fusion technology.We could, for example, add to each end of the insulin gene the nucleotide sequence CT AG, to produce a sequence with the structure: GATC insulin gene CTAG If we now incubate the linear plasmid DNA with the insulin gene, then they willanbsp;...
