Peptide Therapy

The field of peptide therapy is one of the most advanced and exciting fields in medicine. It is an up-and-coming area that has as much potential as stem cell therapy in changing the way we treat patients. Peptide therapy can help patients with disease and patients who would like to prevent disease. But what are peptides? Peptides are basically between 2 and 50 amino acids held together with a peptide bond; these peptides bind to receptors to achieve a certain outcome. The most widely used and well known peptide is insulin.
