Sessions and Tracks
Drug designing is one of the essential components for drug discovery process. Drug Screening predicts the binding energy of the lead molecule to the target & the thermodynamic properties. Molecular mechanics/Molecular dynamics is the most used methods to predict the model conformation changes
This session will discuss the practical difficulties in drug targeting and designing and approaches to overcome them.
Pharmacokinetic activity depends on the amount of drug levels at the target site . Recent advances in analytical and quantitative methodologies are often non-invasive assessments of drug pharmacokinetics at the site of action for better understanding of pharmacokinetic properties.
Pharmacodynamics is affected by various factors including receptor binding and sensitivity, post receptor effects, chemical interactions, physiologic changes due to genetic mutations, diseases, aging, or impact of other drugs. Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics explain the effects of drugs to the host body.
Session on Pharmacogenomics
The effect and response of drug varies for each individual due to variations in genome for each individual. Pharmacogenomics helps to analyse genetic effect of individuals in response of particular drug and gene-drug interactions in body.
Pharmacogenomics is the basis of personalized medicines, a relatively new concept and expected to flourish in the future.
Pharmacology has evolved as a multi-disciplinary science with many sub-specialties including clinical pharmacology, cardiovascular pharmacology, behavioral pharmacology, neuropsychopharmacology, pharmacogenetics, and Pharmacoeconomics.
Pharmacology assess the positive effects of the drugs while toxicology deals with the negative effects of the drug as well as chemical substances and the means to ameliorate such effects.
Session on Pre-formulation & Formulation Aspects
The physio-chemical and mechanical properties of the drug are indispensable in the preparation of the drug in pre-formulation studies. In dealing with protein pre-formulation, it is important to consider the solution behaviour of a given protein under different physiological conditions.
While formulating the drug, physio-chemical properties like particle size, polymorphism`, pH and solubility are should be taken into consideration as they impact bio availability and the activity of a drug. The formulation should ensure that the dosage should have a uniform appearance, acceptable taste and capsule disintegration properties.
