Complex Carbohydrate Chemistry: A Key To Addressing Unmet Medical Needs By David Platt, Ph.D., CEO of Boston Therapeutics, Inc.
Carbohydrates have been shown to play a fundamental role in normal cell functions as well as in major disease pathologies including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and inflammatory diseases. As a class of molecules, carbohydrates have an enormous range of shape, orientation, and composition. Due to this structural diversity, carbohydrate chemistry can be applied to develop a broad range of complex therapeutic molecules and drugs, including pure carbohydrates as well as protein-linked carbohydrates, or glycoproteins. As a consequence of their structural complexity, carbohydrates have not received as much scientific attention as nucleic acids and proteins; however, significant progress is being made in this area.
How To Improve Isolation And Purification Of Natural Product Extracts By Grace
Natural products continue to play a significant role in the discovery of bioactive agents and the development of new therapies and treatments.
