Drug discovery program

The worldwide business sector for drug discovery technologies and products reached $38.4 billion in 2011. It is expected to expand to $41.4 billion in 2012 and to $79.0 billion in 2017, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.8% somewhere around 2012 and 2017. Another report by visiongain, an independent media company based in London, predicts that the world market for drug discovery outsourcing will reach $16.6 billion in 2015.

 Drug-drug interactions occur when a drug interacts, or interferes, with another drug modify the way one or both of the drugs act in the body, or cause unexpected side effects. The drugs involved can be prescription medications, over-the-counter medicines and even vitamins and natural products.

In the fields of medicine, biotechnology and pharmacology, drug discovery is the process by which new candidate medications are discovered. Historically, drugs were discovered through identifying the active ingredient from traditional remedies or by serendipitous discovery. Later chemical libraries of synthetic small molecules, natural products or extracts were screened in intact cells or whole organisms to identify substances that have a desirable therapeutic effect in a process known as classical pharmacology. Since sequencing of the human genome which allowed rapid cloning and synthesis of large quantities of purified proteins, it has become common practice to use high throughput screening of large compounds libraries against isolated biological targets which are hypothesized to be disease modifying in a process known as reverse pharmacology. Hits from these screens are then tested in cells and then in animals for efficacy.
