Fragment-based drug discovery market trends and forecast from 2014 to 2024 detailed in new research report

Medical Market Research

Fragment-based drug discovery, also called as fragment-based lead recovery, is a measure to find lead compounds in drug discovery process. The process is based on identification of small chemical fragments that may not strongly bind to the biological target and combining or growing them in order to produce a lead that has higher similarity.

Market Dynamics

The time-saving characteristics and prompt access to techniques related to biophysical fragment screening is the essential drivers of global fragment-based drug discovery market. The fragment-based drug discovery has emerged as a measure to design unique molecules.

This system uses smaller ligands or fragments that consist of lower molecule weight. However, weak potency of some compounds which are the resultant of fragment screening and requirement of specific fragment libraries in order to conduct research are some of the key factors hindering the fragment-based drug discovery market growth.
