Methotrexate PEG Maleimide
Methotrexate PEG derivatives are a class of bioactive PEGs that can be used to for drug discovery or bioassay development. Methotrexate, also called MTX, amethopterin, is an antimetabolite and antifolate drug. It is used in treatment of cancer, autoimmune diseases, ectopic pregnancy, and for the induction of medical abortions. It acts by inhibiting the metabolism of folic acid. Pegylated methotrexate provides better water solubility. Nanocs can provide other methotrexate PEG derivatives based on customer request.
