Abstract The recent advances in high throughput screening for biological activities and combinatorial chemistry have greatly expanded the number of drug candidates. Rapid screening for BBB penetration potential early in drug discovery programs provides important information for compound selection and guidance of synthesis for desirable CNS properties. In this paper, we discuss a modification of the parallel artificial membrane permeation assay (PAMPA) for the prediction of blood-brain barrier penetration (PAMPA-BBB). The assay was developed with 30 structurally diverse commercial drugs and validated with 14 Wyeth Research compounds. The PAMPA-BBB assay has the advantages of: predicting passive blood-brain barrier penetration with high success, high throughput, low cost, and reproducibility.
