We have reviewed aspects of the medicinal chemistry of Tuftsin. Biochemical and clinical aspects including physiology and assays are briefly accounted for. Structure-activity relationships found in the literature provide a link between the synthetic/design strategies and the biological response. Directed rational design and synthetic techniques are reviewed for both tuftsin and its analogs.
