Carbohydrate Drug Design

Edited by Anatole A. Klyosov, Zbigniew J. Witczak, and David Platt

American Chemical Society

Carbohydrate Drug Design discusses pre-clinical studies and clinical trials of carbohydrate-based drugs, drug delivery and pain managements, biocompatibility, clearance and metabolic pathways of carbohydrate drugs, and actual medical devices employing carbohydrates. Furthermore, this book also covers the invasion of cancer cells, the protein-glycan interactions and their inhibitors, new carbohydrate-based therapeutics, crystal structure of antibodies with unusually high affinity for carbohydrates, and a number of other features of carbohydrate drugs. Galactomannans and hyaluronans, as well as thio-, imino- and carba-sugars are particularly considered with respect of their structural and functional impacts.
