With the global ageing population at risk of death from influenza, what is pharma doing to develop more effective vaccines to combat the virus?
Host pathways in coronavirus replication and COVID-19 pre-clinical drug target identification using proteomic and chemoinformatic analysis
The identification of host dependency factors mediating virus infection may provide key insights into effective molecular targets for developing broadly acting antiviral therapeutics against SARS-CoV-2 and other deadly coronavirus strains. Here, Joseph Steward highlights key findings of recent research.
Several new advances have been made in the field of drug discovery for diabetes – here, three of the most recent have been rounded up.
To reach the full potential of artificial intelligence (AI) in the pharma industry, it is essential that companies harmonise their data to remove the need for unnecessary human intervention. This article outlines how companies are working towards digital maturation and the obstacles they need to overcome to ensure the value…
Cancer can be an immovable beast, tenacious in its numerous mechanisms to thrive and grow. However, the healthcare industry has an ever-expanding arsenal of therapies designed to thwart it, with variable levels of success. Nikki Withers speaks to Dr Jill O’Donnell-Tormey, CEO and Director of Scientific Affairs at the Cancer…
At the beginning of March, US President Donald Trump pressed the pharmaceutical industry to “accelerate the development” of vaccines and therapies to contain the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. This article explores what is currently known about COVID-19 and potential treatments that are in the pipeline.
The importance of product characterisation throughout the entire drug development process cannot be understated. Success, money and lives depend on it. This article delves into why you need to understand every aspect of an ADC in order to prevent unwelcome surprises down the line.
Advances in informatics have afforded researchers the ability to extrapolate petabytes of human genomics data and translate it into biologically relevant information. However, further translating this information into knowledge can prove challenging. Slavé Petrovski, Vice President and Head of Genome Analytics and Bioinformatics for AstraZeneca’s Centre for Genomics Research, spoke…
The future of drug discovery lies in an automated world where the workflows for biological assays, chemical synthesis and data analysis are connected by flexible, mobile and modular hardware, integrated with software solutions that will interface with scientists for increased efficiency and productivity (the realisation of Industry 4.0). This article…
Development of cell line expression systems to produce biologic medicines is complex, multi-stage and time consuming, requiring specific expertise and access to suitable technologies. This can limit the development of novel medicines to existing users and may restrict companies developing new medicines. In this article, major methods and technologies used…
Gone are the days where mere data is considered king. We now understand the real value is in proper data management; but how best to harness its value? This article addresses current market options for companies wanting to extract every ounce of knowledge from raw data.
Developers of small molecule pharmaceuticals perform a battery of analytical tests before early clinical trials.
During cell line development, key attributes such as cell productivity, stability and monoclonality are required before progressing cells for manufacturing.
Detailed knowledge of the human genome can provide us with extensive information about the causes of disease and how patients will respond to treatments. In this article, Pushpanathan Muthuirulan explores the concept of genetic testing and the potential for pharmacogenomic testing to transform healthcare.
