Description

This first systematic summary of the impact of fragment-based approaches on the drug development process provides essential information that was previously unavailable. Adopting a practice-oriented approach, this represents a book by professionals for professionals, tailor-made for drug developers in the pharma and biotech sector who need to keep up-to-date on the latest technologies and strategies in pharmaceutical ligand design. The book is clearly divided into three sections on ligand design, spectroscopic techniques, and screening and drug discovery, backed by numerous case studies.
PART 1: CONCEPT AND THEORY
The concept of fragment-based ligand design
Multivalency in Ligand Design
Entropic consequences of linking ligands
Location of Binding Sites on Proteins by the Multiple Solvent Crystal Structure Method
PART 2: FRAGMENT LIBRARY DESIGN AND COMPUTATIONAL APPROACHES
Cheminformatics approaches to fragment-based lead discovery
Structural fragments from marketed oral drugs
Fragment docking to proteins with the multi-copy simultaneous search (MCSS) methodology
PART 3: EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES
NMR - guided fragment assembly
SAR by NMR: an analysis of ptency gains realized through fragment-linking and fragment-elaboration strategies for lead generation
Pyramid: an integrated platform for fragment-based drug discovery
Fragment-based lead discovery and optimization using X-ray crystallography
Synergistic use of protein crystallography and solution-phase NMR spectroscopy in structure-based drug design: strategies and tactics
Ligand SAR using electrospray ionization mass spectrometry
Tethering
PART 4: EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
Click chemistry for drug discovery
Dynamic combinatorial diversity in drug discovery
‘…this is indispensable reading for drug discovery researchers in the pharma and biotech sector.’ (Anticancer Research, 2007)
