Researchers Push for Faster Drug Development

As the number of new molecular entities approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration plummets year to year, researchers are scrambling for ways to speed up the laborious drug development process.

Currently it takes about 18 years from the start of target discoveryidentifying a certain enzyme or cell or protein one wants to influenceto introduce a new drug to market. The sheer leng......

Therefore, were trying to find a way to go through a large number of compounds to find out what would happen in the human bod......

It will first of all hopefully decrease the time from drug identification to a new molecular entity on the market, and it will also increase the probability that the identified compound will actually act as a drug in vivo.

Mattys noted that getting the industry to move on new and faster ways of doing drug discovery may......
