Peptides are increasing in popularity as a novel means to produce therapeutic drugs for the treatment of human disease. With more peptide therapeutics undergoing clinical trials, anesthesiologists may potentially administer peptides or peptide-like agents in increasing numbers during daily practice. Compared to other drugs, peptides are different in structure and pharmacology. With the quick onset, rapid extra-hepatic metabolism and effective elimination, peptides are ideal agents for use by an anesthesiologist. Here, we discuss peptides and peptide-like agents presently administered and encountered in clinical practice by an anesthesiologist. The future of peptide therapeutics in the field of anesthesiology is also described.
