Item description for Carbohydrate-based Drug Discovery by Chi-Huey Wong...

This handbook presents the latest knowledge on carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry so as to exploit the full potential of this diverse compound class for the development of novel active substances. While it is unique in covering the entire field, particular emphasis is placed on carbohydrates with pharmaceutical potential. Topics include the following:
  • Chemical synthesis of carbohydrates
  • Carbohydrate biosynthesis and metabolism
  • Carbohydrate analysis
  • Cellular functions of carbohydrates
  • Development of carbohydrate-based drugs
A premier resource for carbohydrate chemists and drug developers, this comprehensive two-volume work contains contributions by more than 50 of the world's leading carbohydrate chemists.
