Peptibodies

While peptides have functions and attributes that give them significant therapeutic potential, they also tend to be rapidly cleared from the body. Consequently, peptide medicines may require daily injections, which limit their use to a relatively narrow list of diseases. By fusing a peptide to part or all of an antibody, a peptibody combines the activity of a peptide with the longer duration of activity of an antibody.
