Complex Carbohydrate Chemistry: A Key To Addressing Unmet Medical Needs
By David Platt, Ph.D., CEO of Boston Therapeutics, Inc.
Carbohydrates have been shown to play a fundamental role in normal cell functions as well as in major disease pathologies including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and inflammatory diseases. As a class of molecules, carbohydrates have an enormous range of shape, orientation, and composition. Due to this structural diversity, carbohydrate chemistry can be applied to develop a broad range of complex therapeutic molecules and drugs, including pure carbohydrates as well as protein-linked carbohydrates, or glycoproteins. As a consequence of their structural complexity, carbohydrates have not received as much scientific attention as nucleic acids and proteins; however, significant progress is being made in this area.

How To Improve Isolation And Purification Of Natural Product Extracts
By Grace
Natural products continue to play a significant role in the discovery of bioactive agents and the development of new therapies and treatments. Crude natural product extracts typically contain lead compounds requiring multiple steps to isolate and purify. Conventional flash purification techniques used for isolating such compounds either fail to detect compounds that are nonchromophoric or they lack the necessary sensitivity required for detection of low level components.
