A strategic approach to reducing late stage attrition in drug development

Almost 50% of late stage failures in drug development are reported to be target-dependent, majorly associated with efficacy and safety issues. Intrinsic characteristics of a target may result in candidate attrition during the drug development process. While there may be therapeutic benefits associated with the target, it might be hard to drug, requiring a very highly selective candidate that is difficult to obtain. Even if a high degree of selectivity is obtained, the target may lie in a biological network that could trigger unintended responses upon modulation. Therefore, identifying the right target early is critical for ensuring the success of your program.

We have developed an in silico 360° analysis approach towards solving this challenge, by integrating available information and informatics-based insight to arrive at a careful advancement strategy during early discovery phase. In this webinar, we will share some insights on designing a decision-making algorithm for selecting the right drug target, and also demonstrate the value of in silico target analyses with supporting case-studies.
