Peptide and Peptidomimetic Therapeutics : From Bench to Bedside, Paperback / softback Book

Paperback / softback

  • Information


Peptide and Peptidomimetic Therapeutics: From Bench to Beside offers applied, evidence-based instruction on developing and applying peptide therapeutics in disease treatment, driving drug discovery, and improving patient care.

Here, researchers, clinicians and students will find tools to harness the full power of peptides and peptidomimetics and improve bioavailability, stability, efficiency and selectivity of new therapeutics and their application in treatment plans.

More than 20 leaders in the field share their approaches for identifying and advancing peptide and peptidomimetic therapeutics.

Topics examined run from "bench to bedside," beginning with fundamental peptide science, protein-protein interactions and peptide synthesis. Later chapters examine modes for peptide drug delivery, including cell penetration peptide and peptidomimetic delivery, as well as the targeting of specific disease types, peptide therapeutics as applied to infectious disease, cancer, metabolic disorders, neurodegenerative disorders, and skin disorders, and antiparasitic and immunosuppressive peptidomimetics.
