The effects of peptide derivatives as agonists or antagonists of formylpeptide receptors are described, taking into account the related cellular responses by neutrophils. These effects are related to the structure of peptide derivatives, some of which are potent anti HIV-1 agents. Finally, formylpeptide receptor models are depicted.
