About us

The history of Peptek is closely connected with the discovery of a fundamentally new class of compounds — muramylpeptides by E. Lederer in 1974.

Also in the seventies, independent research by a group of scientists led by Ph. D. T. Andronova, carried out in the laboratory of peptide chemistry Of the Institute of Bioorganic chemistry of the USSR Academy of Sciences resulted in the production of an analogue of muramylpeptide-glucosaminyl muramyldipeptide (GMDP).

The synthesis of GMDP gave rise to many years of research into the biological activity of this compound, which formed the basis for the creation of a new immunotropic drug Lycopid (GMDP), and led to the creation of Peptech UK Ltd in 1985 (from the English peptide technology).
