Book Description :

The Future of Drug Discovery: Who decides which diseases to treat? provides a timely and detailed look at the efforts of the pharmaceutical industry and how they relate, or should relate, to societal needs. The authors posit that as a result of increasing risk aversion and accelerated savings in research and development, the industry is not developing drugs for increasingly prevalent diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, untreatable pain, antibiotics and more. This book carefully exposes the gap between the medicines and therapies we need and the current business path. By analyzing the situation and discussing prospects for the next decade, the The Future of Drug Discovery is a timely book for all those who care about the development needs for drugs for disease. Provides an in-depth, broad perspective on the crisis in drug industry Exposes the disconnect between what society needs and what the drug companies are working on Analyses and projects over 10 years into the future Explains what it means for scientists and society Determines what is needed to be done to make sure that the industry responds to society's needs, remains commercially attractive and answers the question as to who decides which diseases to treat

Book Description :

As the principal agency regulating food, drugs, medical devices, and biological products used by Americans, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) serves one of the most critical consumer protection functions of the federal government. The FDA's reach is enormous, regulating products that represent roughly 25 percent of all consumer spending in the United States. Since 1992, however, federal funding for the agency has diminished, and the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) currently relies on the fees it receives from the industry it regulates to fund the majority of its drug regulation functions. Prescription drug safety is receiving heightened press coverage and congressional scrutiny as a result of recent, highly publicized events, such as the recall of Vioxx because of its link to heart attacks, and the link between certain antidepressants (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs) and an increased risk of suicidal ideation in children. To address these concerns, the FDA in 2005 commissioned the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to conduct an independent assessment of the current U.S. drug safety system. In September 2006, the IOM committee released its report-The Future of Drug Safety: Promoting and Protecting the Health of the Public-which included 25 recommendations for improving the system for drug safety review. The committee identified four major vulnerabilities in the U.S. drug safety system: (1) chronic underfunding; (2) organization problems, particularly inadequate integration of pre-and postmarket data review; (3) a range of technical problems related to the insufficient quantity and quality of postmarket data and inadequate capability to systematically monitor the risks and benefits of drugs after marketing; and (4) unclear regulatory authority and insufficiently flexible regulatory tools. Since the IOM report was issued, the FDA has taken a number of steps toward implementing the recommended improvements. Like many government agencies, however, the FDA is financially strained by its existing responsibilities, and fully implementing the recommended improvements to the drug safety system would require significant financial commitments.The IOM report addressed some of the costs associated with its recommendations, but left many unanswered questions about the resources required to fully achieve the envisioned improvements. To better understand the types and magnitude of resources required to achieve the goals of the IOM report, the IOM's Forum on Drug Discovery, Development, and Translation convened a 1-day symposium in March 2007. Challenges for the FDA: The Future of Drug Safety, Workshop Summary explains the presentations and discussions in seven key areas: addressing the FDA's resource challenges; strengthening the scientific base of the agency; integrating pre- and postmarket review; enhancing postmarket safety monitoring; conducting confirmatory drug safety and efficacy studies; enhancing the value of clinical trial registration; and enhancing the FDA's postmarket regulation and enforcement.

Book Description :

Experienced cancer researchers from pharmaceutical companies, government laboratories, and academia comprehensively review and describe the arduous process of cancer drug discovery and approval. They focus on using preclinical in vivo and in vitro methods to identify molecules of interest, detailing the targets and criteria for success in each type of testing and defining the value of the information obtained from the various tests. They also define each stage of clinical testing, explain the criteria for success, and outline the requirements for FDA approval. A companion volume by the same editor (Cancer Therapeutics: Experimental and Clinical Agents) reviews existing anticancer drugs and potential anticancer therapies. These two volumes in the Cancer Drug Discovery and Development series reveal how and why molecules become anticancer drugs and thus offer a blueprint for the present and the future of the field.

Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Business economics - Operations Research, grade: A, Vrije University Brussel (Vesalius College), course: Economics, language: English, abstract: The health of their population has always been a great concern for governments of Post-War Europe. In order to achieve their goals they had to work closely together with the pharmaceutical Industry. With the phenomenon of the aging population the importance of development of new drugs is increasing. The increasingly old population of Europe creates a big market for pharmaceutical companies. The pharmaceutical Industry is a very complex sector with close links to other Industries. The chemical Industry for example is an important supplier for materials needed in the process of creating new drugs. Furthermore is the market for pharmaceuticals characterized by extremely little concentration and a huge variety of products. Globally in 1998, the 300 best-selling products held a share of less than 45% of the worlds market. The top two products held 1.3% of the market each.1 This fact creates a necessity for the companies to research new, so called “Blockbuster drugs” to succeed on this market with a high competition. The data on the various methods of drug discovery is enormous and sophisticated. In this paper the structure of the Research & Development sector of the European pharmaceutical industry will be examined, which is of increasing importance for the success of the individual companies. The specific data on the R & D section will be given a general character. Furthermore it will give a brief overview of the different regions in Europe and their individual differences. In the end, the difficulties and challenges of R & D in the pharmaceutical industry will be described and compared to other pharma markets abroad.

Book Description :

While biotechnological advances, genomics and high throughput screenings or combinatorial and asymmetric syntheses are opening new opportunities in drug discovery, the industry is facing serious innovation deficit. The total number of new molecules registered per year has dropped in contrast to expected increase. Post marketing failures of blockbuster drugs have become major concerns of industries. On the other side, globally there is a major shift to sue of traditional medicine involving complementary and alternative therapies. Ethnopharmacology and traditional medicines have contributed in past significantly in the process of natural product drug discovery. There are two clear tracks where ethnopharmacology has potential to contribute in future drug research. First, as a discovery engine to provide new targets, leads, and second, use of quality assured and standardized traditional medicines. In this scenario, it is important to understand the mechanisms of drug discovery and pharmaceutical development with a focus on herbal drugs and neutraceutical. This book provides historical perspective, future prospects and significance of ethnopharmacology in drug research. It also provides important steps in botanical drug discovery and development including bioprospecting, quality control, standardization, pharmaceutics, stability, pharmacokinetics, and bioavailability with examples from ethnopharmacology and herbal medicine. One of the important feature of this book is to give an excellent insight to Good Laboratory and Good Clinical Practices along with very useful summary steps involved in filing IND or NDA of botanical products. The book also gives Regulators' perspective of validating claims and how ethnopharmacological or traditional medicines need different approach.

Book Description :

This paper models how the evolving field of pharmacogenomics (PG), which is the science of using genomic markers to predict drug response, may impact drug development times, attrition rates, costs, and the future returns to research and development (R&D). While there still remains an abundance of uncertainty around how PG will impact the future landscape of pharmaceutical and biological R&D, we identify several likely outcomes. We conclude PG has the potential to significantly reduce both expected drug development costs (via higher probabilities of technical success, shorter clinical development times, and smaller clinical trials) and returns. The impact PG has on expected returns is partially mitigated by higher equilibrium prices, expedited product launches, and longer effective patent lives. Our conclusions are, of course, accompanied by numerous caveats.

Book Description :

Successful drugs have a good return on investment by bringing in considerably more revenue than the expenses of discovery, development, and manufacturing. Successful drugs pay for all drug projects, those that fail and those that have yet to fail or succeed. Most research and development (R&D) projects fail. Since R&D is the future of the company, a lot is at stake in the business of R&D. This chapter considers the organization of biopharmaceutical R&D, as well as various organizational experiments, that are already under way, that deal with the enormous risk and cost of biopharmaceutical R&D. There is a fairly uniform sequence of events involved in the discovery and development of biopharmaceuticals. The Stage-Gate Organization of the project pipeline is described along with stage-related goals. The high attrition in the industry is examined as well as reasons for project failure, particularly in the clinic. The fact that most projects fail in the biopharmaceutical industry means that risk, the probability that a project will fail, influences a number of key behaviours in biopharmaceutical R&D. The manner in which risk influences probability of success, cost, value and corporate commitment is considered. Not all discoveries occur within a company – many are in-licenced. Reduced revenues challenge a company's ability to develop all its assets, increasing the demands on project and portfolio management, and for out-licencing or partnering. In large biopharmaceutical companies, resource tends to be organized into business units, therapy areas, line departments, and platform technology groups. In the new era of reduced profits many companies are moving away from vertical integration towards decentralization, performing many to most functions in other companies, and in the extreme, towards virtual drug discovery and development. The risks and benefits with the external allocation of resource via outsourcing and partnering are discussed. Experiments with the organizational model of biopharmaceutical R&D are explored which aim to reduce risk, increase success and efficiency, including attempts to be big and small at the same time, planning for failure, and open innovation. There are also external revenue challenges, including generics competition and third-party payer constraints. On the upside are a number of opportunities to increase revenue, including new biologics and new areas of exploration – epigenetics and gene therapy – and by expanding markets into rapidly developing countries. Managers face complex challenges to the business of biopharmaceutical R&D. But, regardless of the type of company or set of partnered companies, academic institutions and service organizations that perform biopharmaceutical R&D, to a large extent the sequence of events in which a drug is discovered and developed will always be the same. And as long as the industry can continue to find new therapies that positively impact the lives of patients, it will continue to be an exciting and challenging industry.
