Computer Design Leads To Cystic Fibrosis Drug Candidates
Starting with the structure of a protein related to cystic fibrosis, Duke University computational chemists have gone from theory to possible drug candidates for the disease (PLoS Comput. Biol., DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1002477). Cystic fibrosis is an inherited condition in which mucus builds up in the lungs and digestive tract, making it difficult to breathe and absorb food nutrients. The underlying cause is a . . .
