A range of assay methods are used to detect viral contaminants in the raw materials and final finished products. It is obvious that a single viral assay cannot detect the entire viral types present in the sample. So how can we actually determine the viral contaminants. The strategy developed is simple. It mainly focuses on the possible viral contaminant of the source material being used. Also it does not include newly discovered or unknown viral contaminants. Current viral assays falls into 3 categories. 1. Immunoassays 2. Assays based on viral DNA probes
Aptamers are segments of DNA or RNA that congregate to form a 3D structure thereby allowing them to bind to a specific target. This binding is characterized by * High Specificity * High affinity- nanomolar to picomolar range- often resembles the binding of antibody and antigen.
Let us continue with the New Drug Approval Process. Another important area where utmost care must be taken is the Product Labeling. The labeling instructions should be made in compliance to Code of Federal Regulations and approved by FDA. Labeling requirements vary from prescription, non-prescription, animal drug products.

Hello my dear student friends, I hope everyone is busy and doing well in the exams!! With the new igniting minds i hope every one of you want to do something new. Coming to our profession, Novelty, Utility and Non Obviousness-(the major essentials of a patent) are necessary whenever you discover a new product. Before you begin the clinical trials first thing you need to do is, apply for Investigational New Drug Application or IND. A brief discussion of IND will be given by Gangadhar Hari!!

Mineral based adjuvants: A number of minerals are used as an adjuvants. Examples include Calcium phosphate, Calcium chloride. But aluminium based compounds are mostly used- Aluminium phosphate and aluminium hydroxide.
