Is this molecule a drug?
We may prove it right or wrong. Anyway, there will be an answer.
Da-Ta Biotech provides tools for testing the drug like properties of the investigated molecule and its accompanied formulation.
ADME and Toxicity Optimization should be passed through along the R&D pathway. Few start this route in parallel with the scientific building blocks setting.
For becoming a drug, the active molecule needs to be administered (A) into the body/ tissue. The rout of administration is dependent upon chemical-physical properties of the molecules. Correct formulation is valuable. Should the treatment be orally administered, the active molecule might be required to pass into the blood stream – Can it?
The active compound can only induce its effect if it gets distributed (D) to the target organ – Does it?
Can the molecule survive the body fluids and systems until it gets there? The Molecule should survive metabolism long enough yet it should be metabolized (M) – How is it?
Finally, the molecule needs to be excreted (E) from the body – How? When?
