Abstract/Summary The pharmaceutical industry has become increasingly interested in biologics from animal venoms as a potential source for therapeutic agents in recent years, with a particularly emphasis on peptides. To date six drugs derived from venom peptides or proteins have been approved by the FDA, with nine further agents currently being investigated in clinical trials.This unique book provides an up to date and comprehensive account of the potential of peptides and proteins from animal venoms as possible therapeutics.The first text to focus on this fascinating area and bridging an important gap, it provides the reader with essential and current knowledge on this fast-developing area. Venoms to Drugs will find wide readership with researchers working in academia and industry working in all medicinal and pharmaceutical areas.
