New Tool Uses 'Drug Spillover' to Match Cancer Patients with Treatments
Researchers have developed a new tool that improves the ability to match drugs to disease: the Kinase Addiction Ranker (KAR) predicts what genetics are truly driving the cancer in any population of cells and chooses the best "kinase inhibitor" to silence these dangerous genetic causes of disease.
Computer Model Could Explain how Simple Molecules Took First Step Toward Life
Two Brookhaven researchers developed theoretical model to explain the origins of self-replicating molecules.

Brown University computer scientists have developed a new interactive tool to help researchers and clinicians explore the genetic underpinnings of cancer.
An Innovative Algorithm to Decipher How Drugs Work Inside the Body
Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) have developed a computer algorithm that is helping scientists see how drugs produce pharmacological effects inside the body.
How do Networks Shape the Spread of Disease and Gossip?
A team of mathematicians from Oxford University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Rutgers University used a set of mathematical rules to encode how a contagion spreads, and then studied the outcomes of these rules.
AncestryDNA and Calico to Research the Genetics of Human Lifespan
Collaboration will analyze family history and genetics to facilitate development of cutting-edge therapeutics.
Informatics Tool Helps Scientists Prioritize Protein Modification Research
Researchers have developed a new informatics technology that analyzes existing data repositories of protein modifications and 3D protein structures to help scientists identify and target research on "hotspots" most likely to be important for biological function.
Software Differences can Skew Medical Scan Results

Unified Laboratory Intelligence for Impurity Resolution Management
Bookmark and Share

ACD Labs

Maximizing the effective patent life of a marketed drug is one of the main priorities for researchers. According to a March 2010 article in Nature, the estimated average cost for pharmaceutical companies to bring a new chemical entity (NCE) to market is approximately 1.8 billion and requires 13.5 years on average. Identifying and characterizing an impurity in a couple of days less time can literally equate to a gain of a million dollars in net present value. Being able to do this repeatedly as impurities are encountered through the drug development and acceptance of a drug substance can shave weeks, or even months, off the time to market, increasing returns by millions of dollars.

Unified Laboratory Intelligence (ULI) is a category of R&D informatics that combines software, algorithmic tools, and databases to form a scalable platform for the collection and unification of chemical, structural, and analytical data. ULI accumulates information and knowledge from successive projects across different chemistry disciplines to create a one-to-many chemical intelligence-from-information ‘live’ cycle. With ULI, scientists can easily search and quickly retrieve ‘live’ data to gain and apply intelligence and insight that improves decision-making.
