    Author(s): Vitor H PominVitor H Pomin

    Although many biomedical applications for sulfated fucans and galactans have been discovered over the past two decades, only in inflammation, hemostasis, and vascular biology and their mechanisms of actions have been satisfactorily elucidated to a real contribution in drug development. Moreover, advanced structure-function relationships have been achieved only for the anticoagulant and antithrombotic activities, in which glycans of welldefined structures have been assayed. Here, the current status, and the remaining challenges of fucanomics and galactanomics in drug discovery and in glycomics are presented... View More»
