  • 5. Why are new drugs needed? UNMET MEDICAL NEED new diseases (AIDS, Alzheimer’s, obesity)  low efficacy (dementia, cancer)  side effects (antidepressants, antipsychotics) downstream health costs; (Alzheimer’s, spinal injury)  cost of therapy; (Interleukins)  costs to individual/country
  • 6. HISTORY • 1557, Renaissance surgeon conducted first clinical trial unintentionally using turpentine, rose oil, egg yolk to prevent treatment to battlefield wounds ▫ New treatment was more effective. • 1747, James Lind, Father of clinical trails first to introduce control groups in his exp. ▫ Documented that citrus fruits could prevent scurvy. • Concept of study design began in 19th century. ▫ 1863 placebos were used for the first time ▫ 1923 idea of randomization was introduced • 1948 first randomized trial with blinding was conducted by Medical Research Council for use of streptomycin to treat pulmonary tuberculosis • Since 1945, ethical impact of clinical trial gained importance resulting in strict regulations of medical experiments on human subjects • 1947, Nuremberg code • 1964, Declaration of Helsinki (amended in 1975, 1983, 1989,1996,2000,2002,2004)
  • 7. HISTORY- Regulatory • Earlier drugs and medicines were based on ancient art of pharmacy. • 19th century, pharmaceutical industry came into being. Catalyst Event Sulfanilamide Tragedy Nazi Physicians Trial Thalidomide Tragedy Syphilis Study Regulatory Milestone Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act- 1938 – concept of testing marketed drugs on human subjects Nuremberg Code-1947- informed consent by subjects Kefauver-Harris Amendments-1962- efficacy tests for new drugs National Research Act-1974- Commission for Protection of Human Subjects for Behavioral and Biochemical Research
  • 8. HISTORY – regulations cont… • Drug development is lengthy and costly process. • FDA review takes upto 2.5 yrs • 1992- Prescription Drugs User Fee Act – reduced review process from 30 months to 15 months • 1999, founded. • 2006, FDA approves first cervical cancer vaccine, Gardasil in just 6 mnths as a part of FDA’s new priority review system.
  • 9. Drug Discovery and Development Process The Cost of Drug Discovery and Development  Average cost to discover and develop a new drug = $800 million Average length of time from discovery to patient = 10-15 years Only one NCE (new chemical entity) out of 10,000 leads will make it to launch. Target Identification and Validation Assay Development Lead Generation Hypothesis Generation Candidate Development Commercialization Phase III Submit Global Launch Global Optimization Lead Optimization First Human Dose Phase IA Phase IB/II
  • 10. DRUG DEVELOPMENT Three phases: Discovery Pre clinical development Clinical
  • 11. Drug Discovery & Development Identify disease Isolate protein involved in disease (2-5 years) Find a drug effective against disease protein (2-5 years) Preclinical testing (1-3 years) Formulation Human clinical trials (2-10 years) Scale-up FDA approval (2-3 years)
  • 12. Technology is impacting this process Identify disease Isolate protein Find drug Preclinical testing GENOMICS, PROTEOMICS & BIOPHARM. HIGH THROUGHPUT SCREENING MOLECULAR MODELING VIRTUAL SCREENING COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY IN VITRO & IN SILICO ADME MODELS Potentially producing many more targets and “personalized” targets Screening up to 100,000 compounds a day for activity against a target protein Using a computer to predict activity Rapidly producing vast numbers of compounds Computer graphics & models help improve activity Tissue and computer models begin to replace animal testing

  • 15. I. Choosing a Disease • What factors? ▫ Medical ▫ Economic ▫ Geographical Pharmaceutical companies must make a profit to exist Pharmaceutical companies will, therefore, avoid products with too small a market (i.e. a disease which only affects a small subset of the population) Pharmaceutical companies will also avoid products that would be consumed by individuals of lower economic status (i.e. a disease which only affects third world countries) Most research is carried out on diseases which afflict “first world” countries: (e.g. cancer, cardiovascular diseases, depression, diabetes, flu, migraine,
  • 16. II. Choosing a Drug Target • What are they?  Drug Target = specific macromolecule, or biological system, which the drug will interact with • How are they discovered?  Sometimes this can happen through incidental observation…  From drugs  From chemical messengers  Molecular genetics
  • 17. Identifying a Drug Target (cont.)  Example: In addition to their being able to inhibit the uptake of noradrenaline, the older tricyclic antidepressants were observed to “incidentally” inhibit serotonin uptake. Thus, it was decided to prepare molecules which could specifically inhibit serotonin uptake. It wasn’t clear that this would work, but it eventually resulted in the production of fluoxetine (Prozac). NH2 N H HO serotonin O HN prozac N N CH3 H3C Imipramine (a classical tricyclic antidepressant) F3C
  • 18. The mapping of the human genome should help! • Many medicines (and lead compounds) were isolated from plant sources. • Having the genetic code for the production of an enzyme or a receptor may enable us to over-express that protein and determine its structure and biological function. If it is deemed important to the disease process, inhibitors (of enzymes), or antagonists or agonists of the receptors can be prepared through a process called rational drug design. • Plants and natural sources are not likely to provide the cures to all diseases. • In a process called “combinatorial chemistry” large numbers of compounds can be prepared at one time. Combitorial chemistry
  • 19. • Multiple targets • Choosing the Bioassay In vitro: In an artificial environment, as in a test tube or culture media  High throughput screening  NMR (Nuclear Magnetic resonance) In vivo: In the living body, referring to tests conducted in living animals Ex vivo: Usually refers to doing the test on a tissue taken from a living organism Screening perhaps millions of compounds in a corporate collection to see if any show activity against a certain disease protein HIGH THROUPUT SCREENING:
  • 20. III. Find a Lead Compound • “lead compound” = structure that has some activity against the chosen target, but not yet good enough to be the drug itself. • Where?  Random screening ▫ Synthetic chemicals: already manufactured by pharmaceutical companies ▫ Natural products: Plants, microbes, the marine world, and animals Pacific yew tree Taxol
  • 21. III. Find a Lead Compound • Existing drugs ▫ Previously marketed for same disease ▫ Used for other diseases Using Someone Else’s Lead Design structure which is similar to existing lead, but different enough to avoid patent restrictions. Sometimes this can lead to dramatic improvements in biological activity and pharmacokinetic profile. (e.g. modern penicillins are much better drugs than original discovery).

  • 48. IND (Investigational New Drug Application) IND- notice of claimed investigational exemption for a new drug must be filed with regulatory body
  • 50. (C). CLINICAL DEVELOPMENT  Phase I  Phase II  Phase III  Phase 1V A clinical trial is defined as organized research on human beings intended to provide adequate information on the drug use as a therapeutic agent on its safety and efficacy.
  • 51. A clinical trial may be designed to : • Assess the safety and effectiveness of a new medication or device • Assess the safety and effectiveness of a different dose of a medication than is commonly used • Assess the safety and effectiveness of an already marketed medication or device for a new indication • Assess whether the new medication or device is more effective for the patient's condition than the already used, standard medication or device
  • 52. Phase 0 • Phase 0 is conducted in accordance with the U.S. FDA’s 2006 Guidance on Exploratory Investigational New Drug (IND) Studies. • Phase 0 trials are also known as human micro dosing studies. • Distinctive features include the administration of single sub- therapeutic doses of the study drug to a small number of subjects (10 to 15) to gather preliminary PK and PD data. • A Phase 0 study gives no data on safety or efficacy, being by definition a dose too low to cause any therapeutic effect.
  • 53. Phase I • Phase I trials classically are considered ‘‘first in human’’ studies. • A small (20-100) group of healthy volunteers will be selected. • Used to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of a drug. • Phase I trials include dose-ranging, also called dose escalation studies so that the appropriate dose for therapeutic use can be found. 20-100 in Phase I
  • 54. Phase II  Phase II trials are performed on larger groups (20-300).  They are designed to assess how well the drug works, as well as to continue Phase I safety assessments in a larger group of volunteers and patients.  A Phase II trial can last two to three years. Hundreds in Phase II
  • 55. • Phase II studies are sometimes divided into: • Phase IIA • Phase IIB • Phase IIA is specifically designed to assess dosing requirements (how much drug should be given). • Phase IIB is specifically designed to study efficacy (how well the drug works at the prescribed dose(s)).
  • 56. PHASE III • Also known as therapeutic confirmatory trials • randomized controlled • multicenter trials • on large patient groups (300–3,000 or more depending upon the disease/medical condition studied) • Safety ,drug interactions are accessed on a larger scale • Additional pharmacokinetic data may be obtained. • Phase III trials are the most expensive • time-consuming
  • 57. NDA (New Drug Application)  The vehicle through which drug sponsors formally propose that the regulatory body approve a new pharmaceutical for sale and marketing.  Form 44  The data gathered during the animal studies and human clinical trials of an Investigational new product become part of the NDA.
  • 59. Phase IV • Post marketing survelliance • Used to describe the research and studies associated with product safety evaluation after the drug has been approved for marketing. • Pms=Pharmacovigilance+Pharmacoeconomics+Pharmaco epidemiology. • No fix duration
  • 60. OBJECTIVES OF PMS  Confirm the efficacy and safety profile in large populations during practice  Detect the unknown adverse drug reaction/s  Evaluation of over-dosage and treatments  Identifications of new indications  Evaluation of new formulations, dosages, durations of treatment.  Evaluation in different age groups / types of patients
