Addressing the increased use of protein and peptide candidates as treatments for previously untreatable diseases, this comprehensive and progressive source provides the reader with a roadmap to an increased understanding of issues critical for successfully developing a protein or peptide therapeutic candidate. Proteins and Peptides is an invaluable source for drug discovery and development scientists in the biopharmaceutical industry who frequently navigate the maze of protein and peptide pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and metabolism.

Key features include:

  • issues related to delivery of protein and peptide therapeutics in elderly populations and pharmacogenomics
  • lessons learned on the major marketed areas of proteins and peptides, including interleukins, interferons, growth factors, and peptide hormones
  • innovations for protein and peptide delivery such as needle-less delivery
  • strategies for delivery of these molecules to locations such as the eye and brain
  • generic issues of proteins and peptides
