Pharmacological biological activity refers to the physiological implications (adverse and beneficial) of pharmaceutical agents. The study of biological activity of each and every clinically applicable drug that includes the intended biological response as well as side effects is crucial to access the immediate and long term impacts of administration of a specific drug or a combination of drugs.
Safety assessment of drugs especially when it is administered in conjunction with other drugs is crucial in gaining the approval of medical authorities for its widespread clinical recommendation. Hence, study of pharmacological biological activity is quite possibly the most important step in the process of drug discovery.
Furthermore, the recent technological advancements, especially in the field of bioinformatics and computational modeling enable medical researchers to design and adopt the bottom up approach to identify and synthesize novel pharmaceutical agents that possess the desired properties and physiological implications. To highlight the scientific and practical importance of biological activities, the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry is hosting a special issue titled “Biological Activity in Drug Discovery”.
The special issue will publish original scientific manuscripts that are based on recent developments made in the field of study and application of pharmacological bioactivity information in the process of drug discovery. This special issue is pledged to publish research manuscripts that are directly or indirectly related to any/all of the below mentioned scientific disciplines:
The special issue is aimed to contribute to the furtherance of drug delivery research with special emphasis on the biosafety of the conventionally used and recently developed pharmaceutical formulations.
