Molecular hybridization: A useful tool in the design of new drug prototypes
MetadataShow full item record
Molecular hybridization is a new concept in drug design and development based on the combination of pharmacophoric moieties of different bioactive substances to produce a new hyrid compound with improved affinity and efficacy, when compared to the parent drugs. Additionally, this strategy can results in compounds presenting modified selectivity profile, different and/or dual modes of action and reduced undesired side effects. So, in this described several example of different strategies for drug design, discovery and pharmacomodulation focused on new innovative hybrid compounds presenting analgesic, anti-inflammatory, platelet anti-aggregating, anti-infections, anticancer, cardio- and neuroactive properties.
