Biomarkers in Late-Stage Clinical Trials: Applications, opportunities and activities of leading players
Business Insights

Biomarkers reduce the attrition rate of late-stage clinical trials by assessing drug potential in terms of efficacy and toxicity at the early stages of clinical development. Thus, biomarkers significantly increase productivity, lower the cost and duration of clinical trials, and help researchers complete the drug development process at a faster pace.

The Future of R&D Outsourcing: Investigating development hurdles, key challenges & strategies to optimize CRO relationships
Business Insights

While some drug-makers have optimized their R&D outsourcing methodologies and developed sophisticated processes to select, monitor and manage a wide range of projects, many other R&D outsourcing projects fail due to poor planning. A large proportion of these failures could be averted, as many of the most common reasons for failure are preventable problems relating to R&D outsourcing strategy.

The Prestwick Chemical Library (R), A Valuable Tool for Screening
1. Prestwick Chemical, 220 Blvd Gonthier d'Andernach, 67400 Strasbourg-Illkirch, FRANCE 2. University of Strasbourg, Therapeuthic Innovation Laboratory, UMR7200 CNRS, Faculty of Pharmacy, 74 route du

The Prestwick Chemical Library® (PCL) is Prestwick’s flagship product dedicated to screening. It is a collection of 1280 molecules comprising 100% approved drugs (FDA, EMEA and other agencies) selected for their high chemical and pharmacological diversity. The PCL was designed to reduce the risk of "low quality" hits and therefore the cost of the initial screening, and appears to be an efficient smart library for hit discovery. The PCL comes with an extended fully-annotated database.
Scale up of Atorvastatin Delayed Release Nanoparticles for Treatment of Hyperlipidemia: Quality by Design (QbD) Approach

Identifying protein partners of a small bioactive molecule is of great
interest in many aspects of life sciences and specifically in the drug
discovery and development process cycle. It is a support to (i) decipher
the mechanism of action after for example a “High Content” screening,
(ii) study “off-target” effects, (iii) adjust therapeutic indications and
clinical regimens of a drug and (iv) consider drug repositioning.
