Reconstitution in peptide therapy is the process of mixing a dry, powdered form of a peptide (also known as lyophilized peptide therapy) with a liquid (usually sterile bacteriostatic water) to create a solution that can be used for injection or other forms of administration. This process is necessary because many peptides are not effective in their powdered form and require a liquid medium for efficacy. Reconstitution typically involves adding the prescribed amount of liquid to the peptide powder, mixing it gently until it dissolves completely, and then using the resulting solution for treatment.
