Transcript of Peptides

A compound consisting of two or more amino acids in which the Carboxyl group of one acid is linked to the amino group. Peptides play a crucial role in the fundamental physiological and biochemical functions of life.
Most peptides must be administered by injection, because oral administration would lead to degradation and destruction by the digestive system. However, Oral route would be preferred because of its high levels of patient acceptance and long term compliance, which increases the therapeutic value of the drug.
