DMPK Service

Drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK) plays an important role in drug discovery. The DMPK properties of the product determine how much of the drug will reach its target and how long it will stay in the target area. DMPK is therefore closely related to the safety assessment. Pharmacologists are constantly adjusting DMPK during the discovery of biologic drugs to help select the best candidates to enter clinical trials. Inadequate ADME properties can decrease the bioactivity of a drug. Therefore, BOC Sciences is committed to selecting the most appropriate DMPK studies, including in vitro assays and animal models for evaluation. Our teams fully consider all aspects of how the compound of interest is metabolized in the human body including how the drug gets into the body, how it moves within the body, and how it get out of of the body. In addition to sufficient potency against the target protein and acceptable safety, the balance of optimized PK parameters and minimized drug-drug interaction potential helps to assess the safety and efficacy of the new biologics, maximizing the chances of the drug candidate becoming a successful therapy.
