Fragment-based lead discovery (FBLD) also known as fragment-based drug discovery (FBDD) is a method used for finding lead compounds as part of the drug discovery process. It is based on identifying small chemical fragments, which may bind only weakly to the biological target, and then growing them or combining them to produce a lead with a higher affinity. Increasing adoption of fragment-based screening programs by most of the major pharmaceutical companies, increasing availability of more assay options in research departments of most pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies for high hit rates of fragment-based screens are the major drivers of the global fragment-based drug discovery market, and are likely continue this trend during the forecast period.
