Protein Therapy: Introduction

Protein therapy is related to the replacement of damaged protein.
Protein therapy is a form of treatment that involves sending in well-structured proteins to a precise target location to repair or replace damaged ones. This is one of the most widely used treatment methods due to its accuracy and lack of negative side effects.
Therapeutic proteins can be used to replace a protein that is abnormal or deficient in a particular disease. They can also augment the body’s supply of a beneficial protein to help reduce the impact of disease or chemotherapy.
Therapeutic proteins are extensively used in the treatment of cancer, HIV, and other diseases. Monoclonal antibodies, IFNs, and cytokines are examples of some of the macromolecular therapeutic proteins.
Therapeutic proteins can be used to replace a protein that is abnormal or deficient in a particular disease. They can also augment the body’s supply of a beneficial protein to help reduce the impact of disease or chemotherapy. Genetically engineered proteins can closely resemble the natural proteins they replace, or they can be enhanced by adding sugars or other molecules that extend the protein’s duration of activity.
