Drug Discovery
Early Pharmacokinetics

Early Pharmacokinetics

Discovery DMPK is an essential part of drug discovery, as it is conducive to the evaluation and optimization of compound properties in the early stage of R&D improving molecule  characteristics to minimize development risks in later stages. Medicilon is one of the first CRO companies in China to offer discovery DMPK services. We have an experienced pharmacokinetic research team, as well as an advanced platform that provides fast and reliable early DMPK services for clients.

  • Why is Early DMPK Important?

    In 1991, up to 40% of failures in the clinical phase of new drug development were associated with drug DMPK properties; in 2000, the likelihood of late failure was dramatically reduced to less than 10% as major pharmaceutical companies shifted to early DMPK studies.

    (1) Early pharmacokinetic testing allows for a low-cost, short-term risk-benefit assessment of new drug development projects.

    (2) Guiding the processes from optimization of lead compounds to determination of preclinical drug candidates.

  • What are the Six Major Types of Early DMPK Studies?

     (1) Protein binding: plasma, brain tissue, microsomal protein, FBS; Erythrocyte /plasma partition ratio

     (2) Optimization permeability and transshipment: Caco - 2. MDCK - MDR1 / BCRP, OATs/OCTs/OATPs

     (3) In vitro metabolic DDI: P450 inhibited TDI, P450 induced /PXR, metabolic enzyme phenotype.

     (4) Metabolic stability: microsomes, S9, hepatocytes, plasma, whole blood

     (5) Metabolite Screening and Identification: in vitro, in vivo, and GSH Trapping

     (6) In vivo PK: rat, mouse, dog, monkey, pig, rabbit box/single administration


    --- Continuous cross/single point blood sampling

    --- BBB(homogenate /CSF), Tissue distribution excretion (BDC), in vivo DDI (ABT)

  • Can Medicilon Complete Preclinical DMPK Services?

    (1) 19+ years of accumulated experience.

    (2) Completing preclinical DMPK filing studies for about 20 new drugs per year.

    (3) In vivo PK screening of >2000 compounds per year.

    (4) One-stop service for PK/PD.

    (5) Antibody/ADC preclinical DMPK services.

    (6)Technical service solution for isotope drug metabolism research.
