Strategies for Formulations Development: A Step-by-Step Guide Using JMP is based on the authors' significant practical experience partnering with scientists to develop strategies to accelerate the formulation (mixtures) development process. The authors not only explain the most important methods used to design and analyze formulation experiments, but they also present overall strategies to enhance both the efficiency and effectiveness of the development process. With this book you will be able to: Approach the development process from a strategic viewpoint with the overall end result in mind. Design screening experiments to identify components that are most important to the performance of the formulation. Design optimization experiments to identify the maximum response in the design space. Analyze both screening and optimization experiments using graphical and numerical methods. Optimize multiple criteria, such as the quality, cost, and performance of product formulations. Design and analyze formulation studies that involve both formulation components and process variables using methods that reduce the required experimentation by up to 50%. Linking dynamic graphics with powerful statistics, JMP helps construct a visually compelling narrative to interactively share findings that are coherent and actionable by colleagues and decision makers. Using this book, you can take advantage of computer generated experiment designs when classical designs do not suffice, given the physical and economic constraints of the experiential environment. Strategies for Formulations Development: A Step-by-Step Guide Using JMP(R) is unique because it provides formulation scientists with the essential information they need in order to successfully conduct formulation studies in the chemical, biotech, and pharmaceutical industries.

Many chemists – especially those most brilliant in their field – fail to appreciate the power of planned experimentation. They dislike the mathematical aspects of statistical analysis. In addition, these otherwise very capable chemists also dismissed predictive models based only on empirical data. Ironically, in the hands of subject matter experts like these elite chemists, the statistical methods of mixture design and analysis provide the means for rapidly converging on optimal compositions. What differentiates Formulation Simplified from the standard statistical texts on mixture design is that the authors make the topic relatively easy and fun to read. They provide a whole new collection of insighful original studies that illustrate the essentials of mixture design and analysis. Solid industrial examples are offered as problems at the end of many chapters for those who are serious about trying new tools on their own. Statistical software to do the computations can be freely accessed via a web site developed in support of this book.

With a growing number of scientists and engineers using JMP software for design of experiments, there is a need for an example-driven book that supports the most widely used textbook on the subject, Design and Analysis of Experiments by Douglas C. Montgomery. Design and Analysis of Experiments by Douglas Montgomery: A Supplement for Using JMP meets this need and demonstrates all of the examples from the Montgomery text using JMP. In addition to scientists and engineers, undergraduate and graduate students will benefit greatly from this book. While users need to learn the theory, they also need to learn how to implement this theory efficiently on their academic projects and industry problems. In this first book of its kind using JMP software, Rushing, Karl and Wisnowski demonstrate how to design and analyze experiments for improving the quality, efficiency, and performance of working systems using JMP. Topics include JMP software, two-sample t-test, ANOVA, regression, design of experiments, blocking, factorial designs, fractional-factorial designs, central composite designs, Box-Behnken designs, split-plot designs, optimal designs, mixture designs, and 2 k factorial designs. JMP platforms used include Custom Design, Screening Design, Response Surface Design, Mixture Design, Distribution, Fit Y by X, Matched Pairs, Fit Model, and Profiler. With JMP software, Montgomery’s textbook, and Design and Analysis of Experiments by Douglas Montgomery: A Supplement for Using JMP, users will be able to fit the design to the problem, instead of fitting the problem to the design. This book is part of the SAS Press program.

This Bayesian modeling book provides a self-contained entry to computational Bayesian statistics. Focusing on the most standard statistical models and backed up by real datasets and an all-inclusive R (CRAN) package called bayess, the book provides an operational methodology for conducting Bayesian inference, rather than focusing on its theoretical and philosophical justifications. Readers are empowered to participate in the real-life data analysis situations depicted here from the beginning. Special attention is paid to the derivation of prior distributions in each case and specific reference solutions are given for each of the models. Similarly, computational details are worked out to lead the reader towards an effective programming of the methods given in the book. In particular, all R codes are discussed with enough detail to make them readily understandable and expandable. Bayesian Essentials with R can be used as a textbook at both undergraduate and graduate levels. It is particularly useful with students in professional degree programs and scientists to analyze data the Bayesian way. The text will also enhance introductory courses on Bayesian statistics. Prerequisites for the book are an undergraduate background in probability and statistics, if not in Bayesian statistics.

The increasing power and decreasing price of smalI computers, especialIy "personal" computers, has made them increasingly popular in statistical analysis. The day may not be too far off when every statistician has on his or her desktop computing power on a par with the large mainframe computers of 15 or 20 years ago. These same factors make it relatively easy to acquire and manipulate large quantities of data, and statisticians can expect a corresponding increase in the size of the datasets that they must analyze. Unfortunately, because of constraints imposed by architecture, size or price, these smalI computers do not possess the main memory of their large cousins. Thus, there is a growing need for algorithms that are sufficiently economical of space to permit statistical analysis on smalI computers. One area of analysis where there is a need for algorithms that are economical of space is in the fitting of linear models.

“What would happen if Harry met Sally in the age of Tinder and Snapchat? . . . A field guide to Millennial dating in New York City” (New York Daily News). When New York–based graphic designers and long-time friends Timothy Goodman and Jessica Walsh found themselves single at the same time, they decided to try an experiment. The old adage says that it takes 40 days to change a habit—could the same be said for love? So they agreed to date each other for 40 days, record their experiences in questionnaires, photographs, videos, texts, and artworks, and post the material on a website they would create for this purpose. What began as a small experiment between two friends became an Internet sensation, drawing 5 million unique (and obsessed) visitors from around the globe to their site and their story. 40 Days of Dating: An Experiment is a beautifully designed, expanded look at the experiment and the results, including a great deal of material that never made it onto the site, such as who they were as friends and individuals before the 40 days and who they have become since.

This volume explores the application of Quality by Design (QbD) to biopharmaceutical drug product development. Twenty-eight comprehensive chapters cover dosage forms, liquid and lyophilized drug products. The introductory chapters of this book define key elements of QbD and examine how these elements are integrated into drug product development. These chapters also discuss lessons learned from the FDA Office of Biotechnology Products pilot program. Following chapters demonstrate how QbD is used for formulation development ranging from screening of formulations to developability assessment to development of lyophilized and liquid formats. The next few chapters study the use of small-scale and surrogate models as well as QbD application to drug product processes such as drug substance freezing and thawing, mixing, sterile filtration, filling, lyophilization, inspection and shipping and handling. Later chapters describe more specialized applications of QbD in the drug product realm. This includes the use of QbD in primary containers, devices and combination product development. The volume also explores QbD applied to vaccine development, automation, mathematical modeling and monitoring, and controlling processes and defining control strategies. It concludes with a discussion on the application of QbD to drug product technology transfer as well as overall regulatory considerations and lifecycle management. Quality by Design for Biopharmaceutical Drug Product Development is an authoritative resource for scientists and researchers interested in expanding their knowledge on QbD principles and uses in creating better drugs.

This second edition of a global bestseller has been completely redesigned and extensively rewritten to take into account the new Quality by Design (QbD) and lifecycle concepts in pharmaceutical manufacturing. As in the first edition, the fundamental requirements for analytical method validation are covered, but the second edition describes how these are applied systematically throughout the entire analytical lifecycle. QbD principles require adoption of a systematic approach to development and validation that begin with predefined objectives. For analytical methods these predefined objectives are established as an Analytical Target Profile (ATP). The book chapters are aligned with recently introduced standards and guidelines for manufacturing processes validation and follow the three stages of the analytical lifecycle: Method Design, Method Performance Qualification, and Continued Method Performance Verification. Case studies and examples from the pharmaceutical industry illustrate the concepts and guidelines presented, and the standards and regulations from the US (FDA), European (EMA) and global (ICH) regulatory authorities are considered throughout. The undisputed gold standard in the field.
