Abstract

As of 2020, there were >100 approved peptides with therapeutic or diagnostic applications. However, a complete database providing information on marketed peptides is not freely available, making the peptide chemists' job of designing future peptide drug candidates challenging. Unlike the rules for small-molecule drugs, there is no general set of guidelines for designing a successful peptide-based drug. In this review, together with our freely available database (PepTherDia, http://peptherdia.herokuapp.com), we provide insights into what a successful peptide therapeutic or diagnostic agent looks like and lay the foundation for establishing a set of rules to help future medicinal chemists to design peptide candidates with increased approval rates. TEASER: We describe a freely accessible database of approved peptide therapeutics and diagnostics, providing an overview of key structural and compositional trends to help guide the design of future peptide medicines.
