A small molecule is a small, chemically manufactured compound with a low molecular weight. Small molecule drugs help regulate a biological target such as an enzyme, channel or receptor to modify a disease process.
The large majority of drugs on the market today are small molecules and most are delivered orally. Small molecule drugs are part of what Syncona calls, the “First Wave” of technologies in healthcare and are dominated by large pharmaceutical companies.
