With increasing cases of drug failure, due to problems associated with pharmacokinetic profiles of candidate therapies, absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) properties and inherent toxicity, industry players are actively looking for more advanced solutions.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), less than 10% of investigational new drug (IND) candidates progress beyond the submission of a new drug application (NDA); this implies that majority of the drug / therapy candidates fail to reach the market owing to unacceptable safety and efficacy profiles and the problems associated with their pharmacokinetic profiles, ADME properties and inherent toxicity. ADME studies are considered to be critical in establishing the safety and efficacy of drug candidates.
