Overview

Comprehensive coverage of biomarker research applied to drug discovery and development

Two key factors have emerged in the race to discover approvable new drugs faster and with fewer resources: biomarkers and in vitro/in vivo correlations (IVIVC). Predictive Approaches in Drug Discovery and Development: Biomarkers and In Vitro/In Vivo Correlations provides comprehensive coverage of how these factors are enhancing the drug pipeline and accelerating development.

An invaluable resource, the book presents essential information on the importance of biomarkers in translational medicine, the clinical applications of biomarkers, relevant regulatory perspectives, and the potential of in vivo research. With each chapter written by one or more expert authors from the global front lines of the pharmaceutical industry and regulatory agencies, the book also incorporates academic research that unites these two fields and describes their applications, from technical lab experiments to strategic management.

Covering many aspects of biomarker research as applied to drug discovery and development, the book brings together state-of-the-art appraisals of the practical utility of "-omics", biochemical, and protein biomarkers with case histories and lessons from successful and unsuccessful real-world applications. Regulatory agency perspectives and initiatives in the United States and around the world are also discussed, as are GLP validation and, safety biomarkers, and proteomic biomarkers.

Biomarkers and IVIVC present unique opportunities for identifying more robust clinical candidates and selecting leads more intelligently, making Predictive Approaches in Drug Discovery and Development a must-have for researchers and professionals in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, as well as for use in advanced graduate and undergraduate courses.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The ability to correlate in vitro and in vivo biomarker information in the process of drug discovery and development lies at the heart of translational research. The goal is to rapidly translate basic discoveries into clinical applications. This book provides state-of-the-art information on this exciting new research approach.”  (Doody’s, 8 February 2013)

“The text is packed with interesting, comprehensive, and pertinent information, clearly presented with salient points reinforced by inclusion in text boxes . . . This is an admirable textbook for those dealing with drug discovery and development. I enjoyed reading through it and I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest, or is developing an interest, in the field of biomarkers and their, as yet, unfulfilled potential.”  (ISSX International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics, 1 December 2012)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: Translational research is a current buzz word that deals with bringing bench research to the bedside. This book in the Wiley Series on Technologies for the Pharmaceutical Industry focuses on the use of in vitro and in vivo biomarkers to facilitate drug discovery and development.
Purpose: The editors' objective is to provide a critical compilation of the most important aspects of the use of in vitro and in vivo biomarkers to facilitate translating basic pharmacology and drug effects into clinical utility and regulatory acceptance. They have done a marvelous job of bringing these correlations together.
Audience: This book is designed to be of value to all those in academia or the pharmaceutical industry who are involved in the process of new drug discovery all the way from concepts, "go-to-no-go" decision processes, and regulatory aspects.
Features: Part I deals with the use of biomarkers in drug discovery including importance, validation, and proteomic and metabolomics methods. Part II focuses on clinical applications of biomarkers including vascular biomarkers and imaging, success and failure in the prediction human safety via cardiovascular biomarkers, the use of molecular imaging for receptor occupancy for decision making in drug discovery, and the use of biosensors as clinical markers. Part III deals with regulatory perspectives and includes chapters providing European and Japanese perspectives. Part IV covers predicting responses in vivo such as in vitro/in vivo correlations of hepatic drug clearance, the potential of a combination of in silico and in vitro approaches to predict in vivo drug-drug interactions, pharmacokinetics, and toxicity; and the use of in vitro/in vivo correlations for developing concepts and applications in toxicology, plus assessing the potential for induction of cytochrome p450 enzymes and predicting in vivo metabolism.
Assessment: The ability to correlate in vitro and in vivo biomarker information in the process of drug discovery and development lies at the heart of translational research. The goal is to rapidly translate basic discoveries into clinical applications. This book provides state-of-the-art information on this exciting new research approach.
