The Advantages of Monodisperse PEG In Drug Development?
With advancements in both synthetic and purification chemistry over the past two decades, monodispersed PEG linkers have become more commercially viable. Monodispersed PEG linkers have been found to be beneficial in drug design, specifically in small molecule drugs. Some of the problems that are often seen in small molecule drugs include its ability to be easily removed from the body, low solubility and less target-specificity. The introduction of monodispersed PEG linkers to small molecule drugs increases the drug’s solubility and molecular weight. This may allow an extended drug half-life in the body. The use of monodispersed PEG linkers has also improved drug development with its ability to produce homogeneous PEGylated drugs with a specific molecular weight.
Pharmaceutical companies such as NEKTAR and AstraZeneca have made use of attached PEG linkers to small molecule drugs. OBD and OIC medications such as Movantik (naloxol) incorporate monodispersed PEG linkers to enhance the efficacy of the drug. Movantik includes an m-PEG7 linker. The introduction of this linker to Movantik reduced transport across the blood-brain barrier preventing side-effects to the central nervous system.

Biopharma PEG Provides Multi-arm PEG Derivatives Crosslinked Into Hydrogels
Polyethylene (ethylene glycol) is a hydrophilic polymer that can have a very high water content when cross-linked into a network. Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a suitable material for biological applications because it does not normally elicit an immune response. Since the 1970s, PEG has been used to modify therapeutic proteins and peptides in order to increase their solubility, reduce their toxicity, and prolong their cyclic half-lives. In the late 1970s,
Semaglutide VS Liraglutide: Which Is Better For Weight Loss
Among adults with overweight or obesity, once-weekly subcutaneous semaglutide plus counseling for diet and physical activity results in significantly greater weight loss at 68 weeks than once-daily subcutaneous liraglutide, according to a study published in the Jan. 11 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Domenica M. Rubino, M.D., from the Washington Center for Weight Management and Research in Arlington, Virginia, and colleagues compared the efficacy and adverse event
What Are Components And Mechanism Action of Antibody-Drug Conjugates
Antibody-Drug Conjugates (ADC) is a type of anticancer drug that links a drug to cancer-targeting antibodies. The antibody detects tumor-specific proteins expressed on cancer cells and directs the cytotoxic anticancer drug towards the cancer cell. Compared to alternative cancer treatments, for example, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation, and stem cell therapy, ADC combines chemotherapy and immunotherapy and allows selective delivery of anticancer drugs and reduces systemic exposure and toxicity of anticancer drugs. Components of ADC One
Sacituzumab govitecan shows promise in treating the most aggressive type of brea …
A unique antibody drug conjugate (ADC), which delivers a high dose of a cancer-killing drug to tumor cells through a targeted antibody, has been found in a global phase 3 clinical study to nearly double the survival time of patients with refractory metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. The study of the ADC drug sacituzumab govitecan (SG), for which Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) was a lead clinical research site after serving as

Biopharma PEG Provides Monodisperse PEGs In Drug Development
Monodisperse PEG products usually are organic compounds with a molecular weight of less than 1000. Monodispersed PEG linkers are pure compounds with a single molecular weight. Monodisperse polyethylene glycol(PEG) molecular weight is fixed. It can not be obtained by polymerization. It must be by the appropriate reaction of the basic polyethylene glycol fragment. With advancements in both synthetic and purification chemistry over the past two decades, monodispersed PEG linkers have become more commercially
High Quality PEG Raw Materials From Biopharma PEG
Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a polyether compound derived from petroleum with many applications, from industrial manufacturing to medicine. PEG is also known as polyethylene oxide (PEO) or polyoxyethylene (POE), it has wide variety of applications depending on the length of the polymer chain and the molecular weight of the final polymer. The synthesis of PEG is done by polymerizing ethylene oxide, the main ingredient in antifreeze, using a ring-opening
