Description

Pharmaceutical Monographs, Volume 4: Polysaccharides Peptides and Proteins provides information pertinent to a wide variety of naturally-occurring macromolecules that are either peptide, protein, or polysaccharide in nature, which are important as medicinal and pharmaceutical agents. This monograph presents the basic physical and chemical properties of polysaccharides. Organized into four chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the pharmaceutical importance of the class of compounds known as polysaccharides. This text then provides data on the structure of the polysaccharides that is obtained by isolating and identifying the product formed on hydrolysis of the molecule itself. Other chapters consider plant gums and mucilages as important medicinal and pharmaceutical products. This monograph discusses as well the autohydrolysis of gum arabic. The final chapter deals with the clinical applications of various peptide-type antibiotics. This monograph is a valuable resource for undergraduate students of pharmacy and allied subjects.
