We would like to invite you to submit an original manuscript, communication or review for this special issue. Your contribution to this topic will greatly enhance the understanding of this important topic to the readers of Pharmaceuticals. We would like the focus of this issue to be on the structure-activity relationships between promoiety structure and absorption, targeting and/or activation. Additional focus on the physicochemical changes that the prodrug moiety adds to the molecule and how that results in different PK, distribution kinetics and toxicities are also welcome.
