Discovery and Background of the Bowman-Birk Protease Inhibitors
This is an account of the initial work on a protease inhibitor now generally and appropriately designated simply as BBI. It is also appropriate that this account be brief. It is the work of other investigators that provides whatever significance inhibitors of this type possess.
