Born out of a project of the IUPAC's committee on Medicinal
Chemistry and Drug Development, this reference addresses past and
current strategies for successful drug analog development,
extending the previously published volume by nine new analog
classes and eight case studies. Like its precursor, this volume
also contains a general section discussing universally applicable
strategies for analog discovery and development. Spanning a wide
range of therapeutic fields and chemical classes, the two volumes
together constitute the first systematic approach to drug analog
Most drugs are analogue drugs. There are no general rules how a new
drug can be discovered, nevertheless, there are some observations
which help to find a new drug, and also an individual story of a
drug discovery can initiate and help new discoveries. Volume III is
a continuation of the successful book series with new examples of
established and recently introduced drugs.
Retaining the successful approach found in the previous volume in this series, the inventors and primary developers of drugs that successfully made it to market tell the story of the drug's discovery and development and relate the often twisted route from the first candidate molecule to the final marketed drug. 11 selected case studies describe recently introduced drugs that have not been previously covered in textbooks or general references. These range across six different therapeutic fields and provide a representative cross-section of the current drug development efforts. Backed by copious data and chemical information, the insight and experience of the contributors makes this one of the most useful training manuals that a junior medicinal chemist can hope to find and has won the support and endorsement of IUPAC.
The first volume of the book series "Successful Drug Discovery" is focusing on new drug discoveries during the last decade, from established drugs to recently introduced drugs of all kinds: small-molecule-, peptide-, and protein-based drugs. The role of serendipity is analyzed in some very successful drugs where the research targets of the lead molecule and the drug are different. Phenotypic and target-based drug discovery approaches are discussed from the viewpoint of pioneer drugs and analogues. This volume gives an excellent overview of insulin analogues including a discussion of the properties of rapid-acting and long-acting formulations of this important hormone. The major part of the book is devoted to case histories of new drug discoveries described by their key inventors. Eight case histories range across many therapeutic fields. The goal of this book series is to help the participants of the drug research community with a reference book series and to support teaching in medicinal chemistry with case histories and review articles of new drugs.
The first authoritative overview of past and current strategies for successful drug development by analog generation, this unique resource spans all important drug classes and all major therapeutic fields, including histamine antagonists, ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, opioids, quinolone antibiotics, steroids and anticancer platinum compounds.
Of the 19 analog classes presented in detail, 9 are described by the scientists who discoverd them.
The book includes a table of the most successful drug analogs as based on the IMS ranking and compares them in terms of chemical structure, mode of action and patentability.
