Carbohydrates serve as the structural components and energy sources of the cell.Oligosaccharides, moreover, are involved in a variety of molecular recognitionprocesses in intercellular communication.The fact that these biomolecules play akey informative role in biology is becoming more and more evident, confirming theirpotential as therapeutic agents.Excellent progress has been made in the past fewyears in the synthesis of oligosaccharides, making the potential of these moleculesas therapeutic agents more realistic.
