Small Molecule Drug Development Platforms

Small molecule drugs are increasingly used in rare diseases. Our company launched a small molecule drug development platform, which can provide comprehensive services from small molecule drug discovery to preclinical studies for rare diseases. We have rich experience helping global pharmaceutical companies and research institutions offer small molecule drug development.

Small Molecule Drugs for Rare Diseases

Small molecule drugs are the most common drugs and are molecularly defined chemical entities of low molecular weight ranging from 0.1 to 1.0 kDa. With the increasing prevalence of rare diseases year by year, the total number of rare diseases worldwide is nearly 400 million. Therefore, drug discovery and innovative therapies for rare diseases are urgent. There are clear opportunities for the development of small-molecule drugs for rare diseases.

Small molecule drugs are organic compounds that affect molecular pathways by targeting essential proteins that are low in molecular weight and easily penetrate cells. The preclinical development process of small molecule drugs includes identification and verification of initial targets, screening of lead compounds, method development and modeling, selection of preclinical drug candidates, pharmacokinetic characterization, and preclinical safety assessment.
