Small Molecule API Overview

Small molecule active pharmaceutical ingredients are basically tiny molecules that consists of amino acids, monosaccharides and other components utilized in biological procedures. These are organic compound with low molecular weight that is significantly of smaller size as of 1 nm. These are intended to deliver numerous macromolecules along with strong therapeutic effect with least dosage, at times below 10 mgs and many times in micrograms by oral mode of administration.

Small molecule API are highly beneficial in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of a vast range of disorders and is useful as research tool to study biological function and develop new therapeutic agents. Few small molecule API can impede a protein's specific function or disrupt protein-protein interactions that is used in treatment of various disorders.

The increasing prevalence of various chronic disorders such as, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, cancer along with the transforming lifestyle leading to issues like high cholesterol, obesity is driving the demand for small molecule active pharmaceutical ingredient used in the treatment of these disorders.

However, the biopharmaceutical companies are focusing on the research and development sector for developing viable therapeutic drugs that is providing lucrative opportunity for the market’s growth.
