TL;DR: The purpose of this report is to represent the progress in analytical methodologies over the last decade and assessment of the major agreements and issues discussed with regard to small molecules at both the conference and the workshop.
Abstract: This report is a synthesis of (1) the earlier conference on Analytical Methods Validation−Bioavailability, Bioequivalence and Pharmacokinetic Studies (Conference held in Arlington, VA, December 3–5, 1990 and the report published in Pharmaceutical Research, 9: 588-592, 1992) and (2) the workshop on “Bioanalytical Methods Validation—A Revisit with a Decade of Progress,” (Workshop held in Arlington, VA, January 12–14, 2000), sponsored by the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists and the U. S. Food and Drug Administration. The bioanalytical method validation workshop of January 12–14, 2000 was directed towards small molecules. A separate workshop was held in March 1–3, 2000 to discuss validation principles for macromolecules. The purpose of this report is to represent the progress in analytical methodologies over the last decade and assessment of the major agreements and issues discussed with regard to small molecules at both the conference and the workshop. The report is also intended to provide guiding principles for validation of bioanalytical methods employed in support of bioavailability, bioequivalence, and pharmacokinetic studies in man and in animals.

TL;DR: Chitin is the most abundant natural amino polysaccharide and is estimated to be produced annually almost as much as cellulose, and recent progress in chitin chemistry is quite noteworthy as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: Chitin is the most abundant natural amino polysaccharide and is estimated to be produced annually almost as much as cellulose. It has become of great interest not only as an underutilized resource, but also as a new functional material of high potential in various fields, and recent progress in chitin chemistry is quite noteworthy. The purpose of this review is to take a closer look at chitin and chitosan applications. Based on current research and existing products, some new and futuristic approaches in this fascinating area are thoroughly discussed.
