Book Description :

Of the thousands of novel compounds that a drug discovery project team invents and that bind to the therapeutic target, typically only a fraction of these have sufficient ADME/Tox properties to become a drug product. Understanding ADME/Tox is critical for all drug researchers, owing to its increasing importance in advancing high quality candidates to clinical studies and the processes of drug discovery. If the properties are weak, the candidate will have a high risk of failure or be less desirable as a drug product. This book is a tool and resource for scientists engaged in, or preparing for, the selection and optimization process. The authors describe how properties affect in vivo pharmacological activity and impact in vitro assays. Individual drug-like properties are discussed from a practical point of view, such as solubility, permeability and metabolic stability, with regard to fundamental understanding, applications of property data in drug discovery and examples of structural modifications that have achieved improved property performance. The authors also review various methods for the screening (high throughput), diagnosis (medium throughput) and in-depth (low throughput) analysis of drug properties. * Serves as an essential working handbook aimed at scientists and students in medicinal chemistry * Provides practical, step-by-step guidance on property fundamentals, effects, structure-property relationships, and structure modification strategies * Discusses improvements in pharmacokinetics from a practical chemist's standpoint

Book Description :

Recent analyses of drug attrition rates reveal that a significant number of drug candidates fail in the later stage of clinical development owing to absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination (ADME), and toxicity issues. Lead optimization in drug discovery, a process attempting to uncover and correct these defects of drug candidates, is highly beneficial in lowering the cost and time to develop therapeutic drugs by reducing drug candidate failures in development. At present, parallel synthesis combining with high-throughput screening has made it easier to generate highly potent compounds (i. e. , hits). However, to be a potential drug, a hit must have drug-like characteristics in addition to potency, which include optimal physicochemical properties, reasonable ph- macokinetic parameters, and good safety profiles. Therefore, research tools must be available in drug discovery to rapidly screen for compounds with favorable drug-like properties, and thus adequate resources can be directed to projects with high potential. Optimization in Drug Discovery: In Vitro Methods is a compilation of detailed experimental protocols necessary for setting up a variety of assays important in compound evaluation. A total of 25 chapters, contributed by many experts in their research areas, cover a wide spectrum of subjects including physicochemical properties, abso- tion, plasma binding, metabolism, drug interactions, and toxicity. A good pharmacokinetic profile has long been recognized as an imp- tant drug-like characteristic. Pharmacokinetic parameters are affected by many properties of drug molecules such as physicochemical nature, abso- tion, metabolic stability, and so on.

Book Description :

Drug design is a complex, challenging and innovative research area. Structure-based molecular design has transformed the drug discovery approach in modern medicine. Traditionally, focus has been placed on computational, structural or synthetic methods only in isolation. This one-of-akind guide integrates all three skill sets for a complete picture of contemporary structure-based design. This practical approach provides the tools to develop a high-affinity ligand with drug-like properties for a given drug target for which a high-resolution structure exists. The authors use numerous examples of recently developed drugs to present "best practice" methods in structurebased drug design with both newcomers and practicing researchers in mind. By way of a carefully balanced mix of theoretical background and case studies from medicinal chemistry applications, readers will quickly and efficiently master the basic skills of successful drug design. This book is aimed at new and active medicinal chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, natural product chemists and those working in drug discovery in the pharmaceutical industry. It is highly recommended as a desk reference to guide students in medicinal and chemical sciences as well as to aid researchers engaged in drug design today.

Book Description :

This book is aimed at, from students to advanced researchers, for anyone that is interested or works with current experimental and theoretical methods in medicinal chemistry and biological physics, with particular interest in chemoinformatics, bioinformatics, molecular modeling, QSAR, spectrometry, molecular biology and combinatorial chemistry for many therapeutic purposes. This book attempts to convey something of the fascination of working in these multidisciplinar areas, which overlap knowledge of chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biology and pharmacology. This second volume, in particular, contains 11 chapters, of which 6 are related to theoretical methods in medicinal chemistry and at least 5 deal with experimental/mixed methods. In the modern computational medicinal chemistry, quantum mechanics (QM) plays an important role since the associated methods can describe molecular energies, bond breaking or forming, charge transfer and polarization effects. Historically in drug design, QM ligand-based applications were devoted to investigations of electronic features, and they have also been routinely used in the development of quantum descriptors in quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSAR) approaches. In chapter 1, we present an overview of the state-of-the-art of quantum methods currently used in medicinal chemistry. Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulation is a sophisticated molecular modeling technique useful to describe molecular structures and macroscopic properties in very large molecular systems comprising hundreds or even thousands of atoms. In the field of drug discovery, MD simulation has been widely used to understand the biomolecule structure, drug and biomolecule interactions. The chapter 2 outlines the theory and practical details of MD approach and focuses on its application in studies of prediction of binding affinities for putative receptor-ligand complexes. In chapter 3 we discuss the important role of the homology modeling procedure in the drug discovery process. This strategy, associated with computational power and more sophisticated and robust algorithms, has been used to predict properties, energies, conformations and support the binding modes of ligands inside their receptor sites. This approach is vital in structure-based drug design (SBBD), since it can quickly predict the tertiary structure of the target whose structure has not been experimentally solved. In drug discovery research, a massive dataset of information is involved and the high throughput screening of typically millions of compounds plays an important role. Different docking protocols can be combined in order to predict binding models and affinities of a ligand with a target receptor, selecting as example the best drug-like compound candidates to further experimental assays, leading to a reduction in the time and cost of the drug discovery process. In the chapter 4, we discuss the general basis and aspects of this approach, presenting some successful cases in drug discovery. Structure-based approaches have increasingly demonstrated their value in drug design. The impact of these technologies on early discovery and lead optimization is significant. Although there is a multiplicity of different approaches being employed in early stages of drug discovery, structure-based drug design (SBDD) is one of the most powerful techniques, and has been used quite frequently by scientists in the pharmaceutical industry as well as in academic laboratories over the past twenty years. The evolution of medicinal chemistry has resulted in an increase in the number of successful applications of structure-based approaches. Some case studies are presented in chapter 5, exploring the value of structure-based virtual screening (SBVS) approaches in drug design, highlighting the identification of novel, potent and selective receptor modulators with drug like properties. Drug discovery has moved toward more rational strategies based on our increasing understanding of the fundamental principles of protein-ligand interactions. The combination of available knowledge of several 3D protein structures with hundreds of thousands of commercially available small molecules has attracted the attention of scientists from all over the world for the application of structure-based pharmacophore strategies. Pharmacophore approaches offer timely and cost-effective ways to identify new drug-like ligands for a variety of biological targets, and their utility in drug design is unquestionable. In the chapter 6, the understanding and limitations of this approach in drug R&D are discussed. Modern molecular biology has inundated drug discovery organizations with countless potential novel drug targets. A foremost challenge for the researchers is to validate this asset of targets with bioactive small molecules (bioproducts can also be included). Eventually, they will be developed into drugs for the more promising targets. The difficulty of finding a good small-molecule starting point is at the beginning of the searching for a proper chemical space that is well related to biological space. Drugs that are small molecules and act at enzyme targets account for over 50% of all medicines in therapeutically use in the marketplace. It is for this reason that chapter 7 take thermodynamics of the small molecule-target enzyme interactions into account to a limited scope. So far, the main purpose of this chapter is to provide a guidance profile of biocalorimetry and its role in drug discovery and development. The chapter 8 intends to describe how proteomes can be analyzed and studied. It addresses some available databases and bioinformatics tools. The description of certain instrumentation, such as mass spectrometry is also presented, but not highly detailed. The aim of chapter 9 is to introduce the reader to the wide spectrum of tools currently available in the drug validation process. With the conclusion of the human genome sequencing, an increase demand for target validation follows the development of high throughput techniques used in the identification of potential new drugs. In vitro technology as the RNA interference (RNAi) and recombinant protein array together with advances on the in vivo technology as the development of transgenic animals, including here the humanized ones, will certainly improve the safety of future clinical trials processes and ultimately play an important role in the treatment of several human diseases. A therapeutically significant drug may have limited utilization in clinical practice because of various shortcomings like poor organoleptic properties (chloranphenicol), poor bioavailability (ampicilin), lack of site specificity (antineoplastic agents), incomplete absorption (epinephrine), poor aqueous solubility (corticosteroids), high first-pass metabolism (propranolol), low chemical stability (penicillin), high toxicity (thalidomide) or other adverse effects. Sometimes, an adequate pharmaceutical formulation can overcome these drawbacks, but often the galenic formulation is inoperant and a

Book Description :

Informatics and robotics are the workhorses of a technological revolution in drug research. On them are based combinatorial chemistry, which yields compounds by the many thousands, and high-throughput bioassays, which screen them for activity. The results are avalanches of 'hits', which invade the databases like swarms of locusts. But far from being a plague, these innumerable compounds become a blessing if properly screened for 'drugability', i.e., for 'drug-like' properties such as good pharmacokinetic (PK) behavior. Pharmacokinetic profiling of bioactive compounds has, thus, become a sine qua non condition for cherry-picking the most promising hits. Just as important, but less visible, are the structure-property and structure-ADME relations, which emerge from PK profiling and provide useful feedback when designing new synthetic series. As a result, the screening, design, and optimization of pharmacokinetic properties has become the bottleneck and a major challenge in drug research. To shorten the time-consuming development and high rate of attrition of active compounds ultimately doomed by hidden pharmacokinetic defects, powerful biological, physicochemical, and computational approaches are being developed, whose objectives are to increase the clinical relevance of drug design and to eliminate as soon as possible compounds with unfavorable physicochemical properties and pharmacokinetic profiles. The profiling of ADME properties (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion) is the topic of this book. Following the extraordinary success of the previous work ('Pharmacokinetic Optimization in Drug Research: Biological, Physicochemical, and Computational Strategies', Eds. B. Testa, H. van de Waterbeemd, G. Volkers, R. Guy, Verlag Helvetica Chimica Acta, Zürich, 2001, 655 pages), there was a need for an essentially new edition focusing on the latest theoretical and technological breakthroughs. In this unique work, international authorities and practicing experts from academia and industry offer state-of-the-art presentations of concepts, methods and technologies now in use or development in drug research. The biological strategies emphasized in the book include cell cultures, drug-metabolizing enzymes, transporters and plasma protein binding. The physicochemical strategies focus on artificial membrane-permeability assays, on solubility and lipophilicity and related molecular properties as factors and predictors of pharmacokinetic behavior, and on stability and solid-state properties. Computational strategies comprize the exploration of property spaces, pharmacophore searching to predict biotransformation and enzyme inhibition, and expert systems to process biopharmaceutical profiling data. In addition to its 28 chapters, the book includes a CD-ROM containing the invited lectures, oral communications, and posters (in full version) presented at the Third LogP Symposium, 'Physicochemical and Biological Profiling in Drug Research', held at the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) of Zürich in March 2004.
