Fragment methods in drug discovery: the potential grows
An interesting set of articles focussed on Fragment methods published in Drug Discovery Today.
Fragment methods have now become well established within the repertoire of drug discovery technologies used within the pharma and biotech industries. Success has been repeatedly demonstrated in the application of fragment methods as the basis for the discovery of drug candidates with attractive physicochemical properties for soluble protein targets….In this issue of Drug Discovery Today, Editor’s Choice highlights four recent papers that consider how to make the best use of fragments both in terms of their optimisation and their application more broadly in drug discovery. The papers featured are all available as free downloads, so please have a look at them; I’m sure that you will find them interesting and thought provoking.
