Fragment-Based Drug Discovery

Fragment-Based Drug Discovery

With the second ever FDA approval of a fragment derived drug in April, the potential of fragment-based drug design (FBDD) was discussed in September’s Nature Reviews Drug Discovery. The article which can be found here addresses the strengths of fragment libraries including probe-like qualities and the ability to cover vast chemical space with a small collection.

Compound Cloud offers high-quality fragments for FBDD through our partnership with Selcia. You can find the 1,366 molecule Selcia Fragment Library in our online shop, and you can download the structure files for free here.
