Genomics in drug discovery: the best things come to those who wait


, : Genomics in drug discovery: the best things come to those who wait. Current Opinion in Drug Discovery & Development 11(3): 303-311

The year 2007 has been marked by the maturation of high-throughput technologies that combine automation and miniaturization to enable systematic surveys of genome sequence variation, gene expression and gene function. These technologies have the potential to affect drug discovery in many ways, from target identification and validation, to pinpointing the molecular variants that influence medicine response. In the current climate of declining pharmaceutical R&D productivity, these approaches offer hope, but a price tag is attached. This review covers exciting advances in the field of genomics, and discusses when to act on genomic data versus when to wait for further information.

This study demonstrated the feasibility of measuring microalbuminuria in diabetic pa...

In comparison to carcasses of B, C or E maturity, carcasses of A maturity produced broiled steaks which had higher (P < 0.05) palatability ratings in 62-86% of comparisons, were decidedly less variable (C.

Inflammatory stimuli induce prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) synthesis by upregulating cycloxgenase-2 (COX-2) and microsomal PGE synthase-1 (mPGES-1). Glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) reportedly plays an important role in inflammatory reactions, whereas...
