This brief describes studies conducted by the authors on mid-size
drugs utilizing peptides and peptidomimetics, and on the
development of anti-HIV agents. Peptides are important biological
molecules and have various physiological actions. Peptide-based
drug discovery may help bring about the development of useful
medicines that are highly safe and show potent pharmacological
effects in small doses. Recently, it has been shown that there is
an important... more...
