Product Introduction

Amino acids are the building blocks of life, and they play a crucial role in many biological processes. Amino acid drugs are usually used as supplements of amino acids in the human body in the form of compound preparations. In addition, specific amino acids or their derivatives may also have specific pharmacological effects. CD Formulation provides a variety of amino acid series pharmaceutical active ingredients, and provides customized services according to customer needs.

Amino Acid Series Product Category

We offer a diverse range of amino acid products which can be divided into natural amino acids and amino acid derivatives.

  • Natural Amino Acids 

There are 20 kinds of natural amino acids in living organisms. According to the chemical structure and properties of the R group, they can be divided into two categories: polar amino acids and non-polar amino acids. Except for glycine, all natural amino acids are L-α-amino acids. The production methods of amino acids usually include protein hydrolysis, fermentation and chemical synthesis. CD Formulation has an advanced technology platform and a professional technical team, which can provide high-quality natural amino acid products.

  • Amino Acid Derivatives.

Amino acid derivatives are substances made by combining amino acids through a series of reactions. Many substances in the human body, such as adrenaline and thyroid hormones, are amino acid derivatives. In terms of medicine, amino acid derivatives are currently very active in clinical use as therapeutic drugs. They have been widely used in the treatment of liver diseases, cardiovascular diseases, ulcer diseases, nervous system diseases, and anti-inflammatory. For amino acid derivatives, we can provide customized products according to customer needs. If you have any related needs, please feel free to contact us!

Applications of Amino Acids

  • Nutritional supplements

Patients suffering from insufficient protein intake, malabsorption, or amino acid deficiencies are treated with amino acid injections. In addition, it improves the nutritional status of patients after surgery.

  • Amino Acids in the Development of Prodrugs

Amino acid prodrug strategies are attractive in the field of improved and targeted drug delivery. In Nuno Vale's article[1], the application of amino acids in the development of prodrugs is reviewed. Amino acids, as part of prodrugs, can increase bioavailability, reduce drug toxicity and target drug delivery. These drug combinations include:

  • L-Valine, L-Isoleucine, etc. & Development of prodrugs related to antiviral.
  • L-Proline, D-Valine, etc. & Development of prodrugs related to anticancer.
  • L-Phenylalanine, D-Phenylalanine, etc. & Development of prodrugs related to antimalarial.
  • L-Alanine, DL-Alanine, etc. & Development of prodrugs related to antibacterial.
  • N-Acetyl-L-Phenylalanine etc. & Development of prodrugs related to anti-tuberculosis.
  • L-Tyrosine, L-Leucine, etc. & Development of prodrugs related to CNS diseases.
