Pharmacokinetic profiling in drug research: biological, by Bernard Testa, Stefanie D. Krämer, Heidi

By Bernard Testa, Stefanie D. Krämer, Heidi Wunderli-Allenspach, Gerd Folkers

Informatics and robotics are the workhorses of a technological revolution in drug learn. On them are dependent combinatorial chemistry, which yields compounds by way of the numerous hundreds of thousands, and high-throughput bioassays, which reveal them for job. the consequences are avalanches of 'hits', which invade the databases like swarms of locusts. yet faraway from being a pandemic, those innumerable compounds develop into a blessing if appropriately screened for 'drugability', i.e., for 'drug-like' homes equivalent to sturdy pharmacokinetic (PK) habit. Pharmacokinetic profiling of bioactive compounds has, hence, develop into a sine qua non situation for cherry-picking the main promising hits. simply as very important, yet much less noticeable, are the structure-property and structure-ADME family members, which emerge from PK profiling and supply important suggestions while designing new man made sequence. consequently, the screening, layout, and optimization of pharmacokinetic homes has turn into the bottleneck and a big problem in drug study. To shorten the time-consuming improvement and excessive fee of attrition of lively compounds eventually doomed by means of hidden pharmacokinetic defects, strong organic, physicochemical, and computational techniques are being constructed, whose ambitions are to extend the scientific relevance of drug layout and to dispose of once attainable compounds with detrimental physicochemical houses and pharmacokinetic profiles.

The profiling of ADME homes (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion) is the subject of this ebook. Following the intense luck of the former paintings ('Pharmacokinetic Optimization in Drug study: organic, Physicochemical, and Computational Strategies', Eds. B. Testa, H. van de Waterbeemd, G. Volkers, R. man, Verlag Helvetica Chimica Acta, Z? 2001, 655 pages), there has been a necessity for an basically new version concentrating on the most recent theoretical and technological breakthroughs. during this designated paintings, foreign specialists and practising specialists from academia and supply cutting-edge shows of innovations, equipment and applied sciences now in use or improvement in drug examine. The organic suggestions emphasised within the publication comprise telephone cultures, drug-metabolizing enzymes, transporters and plasma protein binding. The physicochemical innovations specialise in man made membrane-permeability assays, on solubility and lipophilicity and comparable molecular homes as elements and predictors of pharmacokinetic habit, and on balance and solid-state homes. Computational concepts comprize the exploration of estate areas, pharmacophore looking out to foretell biotransformation and enzyme inhibition, and professional platforms to technique biopharmaceutical profiling information.

as well as its 28 chapters, the e-book features a CD-ROM containing the invited lectures, oral communications, and posters (in complete model) provided on the 3rd LogP Symposium, 'Physicochemical and organic Profiling in Drug Research', held on the Federal Institute of expertise (ETH) of Z?in March 2004.
