Enzyme Immobilization & Therapeutics

Enzymes are the extremely selective biocatalysts synthesized by living cells. Therapeutic enzymes are those enzymes which can be used medically either isolately or adjunctly with other therapies with the purpose of treatment of various diseases safely. Use of these enzymes as drugs for the treatment of medical problems forms the basis for “Therapeutic use of enzymes”. Enzyme supplements are often prescribed for patience suffering from disorders that affect the digestive processes such as Cysic fibrosis, Gaucher'"s disease and celiac disease. Enzymes have the ability to purify the blood,stenghen the immune system, enhance the mental capacity, cleanse the colon and maintain the proper pH balance in urine. Enzyme immobilization  is another broad field which is applied in therapeutics. Immobilization process is to optimize the operational perforformance of an enzyme for industrial application. Immobilization improves many properties of  enzymes such as performance in organic solvents, pH tolerance, selectivity, heat stability and functional stability.
