Fragment-Based Approach towards the Design of Potent and Versatile Anti-Cancer Agents
Abstract:   Despite years of clinical research and trials of encouraging new therapies, cancer remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. The fragment-based drug discovery has evolved formerly as an efficient approach for identification, optimization, and generation of lead. After identifying the fragments having binding affinity with the target using computational method for fragment screening, the ...Read More - Download PDF - View Fulltext

Approaches of Prodrug Designing to Treat Cancer, Neurodegenerative Disorders and Viral Diseases
Abstract:   Classical prodrug design is a sweeping approach to throw away futile side effects related to drug therapy. The main purpose of prodrug designing is to ameliorate physicochemical, pharmaceutical, and pharmacokinetic characteristics of particular compounds to resolve issues like formulation, delivery to the target site, and toxicity limitations. To fabricate the pharmacological action in CNS, drugs ...Read More - Download PDF - View Fulltext
