Pharmaceutical Drug Development – Stages of Drug Development

Table of Contents: What are the stages of drug development? 1: Discovery and Development 2: Preclinical Research 3: Clinical Research 4: FDA Drug Review 5: FDA Post-Market Drug Safety Monitoring What are the stages of drug development? 1: Discovery and Development Discovery Typically, researchers discover new drugs through: Existing treatments have unforeseen side effects. New insights into a disease process allow researchers to create a product that must include the prescribed information for the medicine. Many molecular compound experiments may find more information to discover potential positive effects against a wide range of ailments. New technologies, such as those that allow medicinal items to be targeted to particular areas inside the body or enable genetic material to be manipulated At this point in the process, hundreds of molecules may be prospective candidates for development as a medicinal therapy. However, based on preliminary testing, only a few chemicals appear promising and warrant additional investigation. Development Once researchers have identified a potential…

Mitochondrial Uncoupling: If You Want to Live Longer, Look to the Skies

Over the years an enormous amount of both scientific and pseudo-scientific speculation has been aimed at explaining prevailing trends in the lifespan of animals,and how we might apply those lessons to humans. Since clear, observable trends exist with respect to various groups of animals and lifespan, if we can understand the underlying processes behind those trends, we might be able to extend and maximize our own lifespans.  The most obvious trend is body size versus lifespan, which is robust and repeatable, yet has some outliers that offer tantalizing grounds for speculation. Figure 1 shows the trend between size and lifespan.  The trend lines, both of which have significant scatter, clearly show two trends, with the data broken down to illustrate the difference between flying and non-flying species.  The striking difference between species who can and cannot fly will be immediately available to anyone who has ever kept a parrot – some species can reliably outlive their human owners. A number of…

Will Big Pharma Sabotage its’ Own Re-Shoring?

The need to reshore American products has been recognized on a federal level for many decades, with legislation such as the original Buy American Act, dated to 1933. The urgency has grown in recent years, with the burgeoning dependence of the United States on foreign medicines and medical equipment now constituting a huge strategic burden.  The issue has recently come to forefront because of  renewed distrust in supply chain stability thanks to Covid-19, however, and current legislation is upping the ante by including Big Pharma among the list of key players that need to be reformed. The imperative to return American products home is primarily being addressed through legislation offering incentives aimed at making American businesses more competitive, imposing tariffs on foreign goods and offering tax benefits for American manufacturers.  Although 28% of registered worldwide pharmaceutical API manufacturing sites are located within the US, according to government statistics when we consider the sourcing of raw materials, various estimates suggest that…

Thanks for the Plague, California!

Because if hiding dead bodies isn’t a conspiracy, we don’t know what is.The bubonic plague (and its’ siblings, the septicemic and pneumonic plagues) is alive and well in the Western United States.  In fact, in the most plague-stricken region in the United States (Northern New Mexico) several cases pop up every year.  Even with modern antibiotics, nearly 1 in 6 plague patients will die – which is still better than no treatment at all, since some forms are 99% fatal if untreated. Thanks to horizontal gene transfers and other mechanisms, soon antibiotics may not even help: one recently isolated strain of the plague was found to be resistant to eight antibiotics, including all of the three primary treatments for plague.  Even more disturbing, a Nevada woman who eventually died was treated for a bacterial infection in early 2017 that was resistant to every antibiotic available in the United States.  Yersinia pestis typically hides out in long-term environmental reservoirs, which may provide more…

Anti-Vaxxers a Top Health Threat

A new threat to the health and safety of children has recently begun to take center stage: diseases that were once thought eradicated have reemerged into public consciousness.  These diseases have been aided and abetted by the irresponsible and dangerous behavior of people opposed to vaccines, otherwise known as anti-vaxxers.
