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.
A review of potential COVID-19 therapeutics revealed that the most effective are likely to be those directly targeting SARS-CoV-2, such as remdesivir and tilarone.
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.
If not correctly assessed, drug candidates with undesirable safety issues may progress through clinical development, resulting in costly failures later in the development process. Given that many drugs fail in clinical trials due to nephrotoxicity, this article describes the importance of understanding kidney transporter function in drug development, how current…
A collaboration between Elsevier and the FDA will present an algorithm for the accurate prediction of drug-induced liver injury. Drug Target Review investigates the benefits this toxicology project will bring to the drug discovery industry.
Humanised immune system (HIS) models have enabled numerous in vivo evaluations of immuno-modulating biologic drugs and ongoing improvements continue to extend their utility. Paul Volden explores the application of HIS models in precision and personalised medicine with a focus on biologics, including how HIS models are used, why they are…
CAR T-cell therapy has caused quite a stir in the immunotherapy world, but it is a process that requires precision and care. Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) has thus far been the stalwart technique for providing a check on copy numbers, but here Ping Jin explains why droplet digital PCR…
A potential treatment for polycystic kidney disease has shown positive results in animal testing.
