About the Topic

This symposium covers different aspects and challenges of peptide drug discovery and therapeutic candidate development including the following topics:

  • Peptide drug development from a chemistry perspective: (a) the status of peptide therapeutics progress and future directions, (b) advances in peptide engineering tools and techniques for converting a bioactive peptide to a drug like molecule from the chemistry perspective and (c) development of control strategies for peptide manufacturing form regulatory and industry perspectives
  • Approaches to discover, optimize, assess, and deliver combination peptide therapeutics for treatment of metabolic diseases
  • Oral delivery, cell-penetrating peptide, tight junction regulation
  • Nonclinical expectations to support clinical trials and NDA applications for different types of peptide products will be discussed.  Examples will be provided for peptide monotherapy and combination products.
  • Current regulatory expectations for packaging/delivery systems, risk-based approaches to material safety evaluation and examples to illustrate material challenges
  • Key factors affecting the absorption, distribution, and elimination of peptide drugs
  • Oxytocin and evidence for a role in weight loss/obesity: biology and clinical studies
  • And more…
