Drug Optimization

Drug Optimization

Drug optimization or lead optimization aims at enhancing the chemical compounds from drug screening to improve potency, and reduce toxicity. It is one of the most important steps in drug development. In drug discovery and development, once a chemical compound is identified, the following step is to evaluate its ADMET/ADME-Tox (absorption/administration, distribution, metabolism, elimination/ excretion, and toxicity). And then, it comes to lead optimization to maintain favorable properties of lead compounds and improve other parameters.

CD BioSciences offers a complete panel of drug discovery and development services from chemical compound screening, drug target identification, ADME/PK analyses to lead optimization and preclinical tests. With us, your discovery of potential drugs for curing diseases is with the highest level of assurance.
