In Vitro ADME Services

In the early stages of drug discovery, in vitro ADME studies (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion) are critical in understanding candidate compounds' efficacy and safety. Our company has highly experienced and matured scientists capable of undertaking the entire set of services from drug discovery to pre-clinical studies to accelerate your ADME studies on the treatment of rare diseases.

Introduction to ADME

In vitro ADME studies are used to evaluate the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of drugs. In the early stages of drug discovery, in vitro ADME studies are used to identify chemotypes and lead compounds with favorable pharmacokinetic and toxicological profiles.

During the lead optimization and preclinical candidate stages, comprehensive in vitro ADME studies including protein binding, metabolic stability, drug interaction-related transporters, and CYP inhibition are often required to predict human pharmacokinetic properties. Optimizing the properties of ADME in drug design and screening can significantly reduce the failure rate of drug discovery. With the realization of new technologies and the improvement of existing technologies, high-throughput screening technology is widely used in ADME studies.
