Scientists have shared a new method that aims to accelerate the discovery of chemical compounds that inhibit a particular enzyme implicated in several cancers.
Mundipharma EDO GmbH's Dr Thomas Mehrling talks through the benefits of streamlining the drug discovery and development process using the EDO model...
Believed by many to be a relic of past centuries, tuberculosis (TB) causes more deaths than any other infectious disease including HIV/AIDs. In 2015 there were an estimated 10.4 million new cases of TB and 1.4 million deaths from the disease.
Although this target class is already heavily investigated, there are still a significant number of opportunities for discovery of novel drugs targeting additional GPCRs. In this review, scientists from AstraZeneca R&D discuss the general build-up of GPCR screening cascades for discovery of chemical leads that can be further developed into…
