Expediting early-phase development of small molecules: An integrated approach


Small molecule drug development has changed substantially in recent years. With the heightened focus on molecularly targeted therapies, small molecule active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and drug products are more complex and potent than ever, requiring increasingly specialized manufacturing processes and drug delivery solutions. At the same time, the competitive demand for rapid entry into clinical development—combined with accelerated review pathways—translate into compressed manufacturing and delivery timelines.

In this whitepaper, we discuss key strategies for efficiently advancing small molecules from API to pre-clinical data and clinical supply.
