An opinion of ChatGPT about smart drugs
Published in Drugs development.
I think the concept of “smart drug” is generally associated with nootropics, which are substances that enhance cognitive functions of the brain, rather than drugs designed to treat organ diseases.
However, there are drugs intended to treat organ diseases that can be considered “smart” due to their ability to specifically target affected areas while minimizing side effects on the rest of the body.
For example, some drugs used to treat autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis work by specifically inhibiting immune cells that attack the body’s tissues. Similarly, some anticancer drugs specifically target cancer cells while minimizing damage to healthy cells.
These drugs are often the result of extensive research and development, and are designed to be effective while minimizing side effects on the body. However, they are not considered “smart drugs” in the strict sense of the term, which primarily refers to nootropics.
