Patheon Quadrant 2TM predictive modeling platform to solve solubility and bioavailability challenges
You have many questions about your small molecule. How should you synthesize it? How can you develop it for study? What’s the best formulation? How can I scale up my project? What’s the impact on the supply chain? What’s the right level of data to file my IND with speed? What issues might arise? We help you get small molecule development right the first time, with a combination of end-to-end solutions, deep expertise, and industry-leading technology.
Large molecules are generally injected, readily delivering them into the patient’s system. Small molecules, however, have a greater challenge—making it through the gastrointestinal system and liver, which act as defensive barriers against potentially harmful synthetic molecules. Small molecules must also dissolve to be absorbed, and the rates of absorption may need to be tailored. Finally, the solid-state properties of small molecules require manufacturing into consistent and safe unit doses for patients.
