Summary There is a mounting interest in the therapeutic potential of bioactive peptides which collectively present a cornucopia of bioactivities for exploitation in vivo. Bioactive peptides trigger certain functionalities such as antioxidative, antimicrobial, antihypertensive, cytomodulatory and immunomodulatory activities in the living body system. With research and development, there exists an opportunity to effectively harness these functionalities for the treatment, prevention and mitigation of different medical conditions. This critical review discusses some potential therapeutic applications of bioactive peptides in the light of advances in general biopharmaceutical production based on proteomics and genomics.
