Our high-quality data and efficiency of the experimental cycle meet the demands from the early drug discovery to the new drug declaration, acquiring the customer's consistent good comments.
Drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK) is the study of drug disposition process in the organism, which use mathematics and dynamics models to describe the process of absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME), then combining the exposure of drugs in blood circulation and target organs with clinical manifestations (pharmacodynamics and toxic side effects).

In order to reduce the clinical failure of candidates due to the characters as poor PK, instability, low permeability or high toxicity, there have been considerable efforts put into developing in vitro, in vivo and in silico approaches to screening candidates for various DMPK properties. Characterization of ADME profiles is an important part of the selected leads screening, and a completed profile of the candidates’ drug-like properties could be obtained in this step. Meanwhile, the research can be used as a means of ranking compounds for further in vivo studies. The winner of the selection in vitro will play in vivo experiments where the assessment of pharmacokinetics in experimental animals provides the most physiologically relevant preclinical test system which reflects the complexity of all DMPK properties, including PK/PD analysis, compounds distribution, toxicity and safety data. All these pre-screening tests may provide a prediction of what will happen after the candidates applied on the human. And the selected process will benefit the whole drug discovery and development program with less time and costs, but high quality.
