Drug repurposing is a well-known strategy for enhancing the therapeutic and commercial value of marketed drugs:
- Greater probability of success compared to developing new drugs, due to the existing data, particularly safety, already generated on the marketed drug.
- Existence of data may also result in lower overall development costs and shorter development timelines.
- Commercial potential of these drugs may be enhanced by differentiation by way of formulation, route of administration or dose and gaining patent protection.
We aim to use our expertise in solid form science to discover and file patent applications on new solid forms to facilitate development of alternative formulations and delivery methods to repurpose marketed drugs into differentiated products for new indications.
