BigNews.Biz - May 14,2012 - PEGylation has become a well-accepted method for the delivery of biopharmaceuticals-especially peptide and protein drugs.1-4 Simple modification of a drug with polyethylene glycol (PEG) not only is capable of improving the drug’s solubility, diminishing the potential for aggregation, and minimizing interference for both in vitro and in vivo applications, but is also able to protect it from proteolytic digestion, increasing its half-life in biological applications in the process.1-4
