The Discovery and Optimization of Nucleic Acid Drug Candidates
Creative Biolabs helps clients turn hits from screening into lead compounds that can be further optimized, realizing the discovery of nucleic acid drug candidates. The lead compound can be a screened hit or a series of homologues. For high-throughput screening, there are discrete and multi-series hits. This requires the selection of one of the series for further study, which is the process of Hit to Lead. Creative Biolabs has advanced computing tools, highly automated analytical instruments and efficient integration capabilities to help customers achieve this. The selection of a lead compound for preclinical evaluation can transform it into a nucleic acid drug candidate and optimize the lead compound. Creative Biolabs is capable of conducting pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies. When modifying lead compounds, we can assist customer to observe the changes of physical and chemical properties. For compounds with no selectivity, we can use off - target effect and other technical means to further study.
Services We Can Provide:
1. Chemical Modifications of Nucleic Acid Drug
Creative Biolabs can supply professional customized service about the chemical modifications of nucleic acid drugs and support of your research and technology appliance.
We provide but are not limited to:
- Chemical modified nucleotide
- Oligonucleotide conjugatives
Categories of Chemical Modifications:
- Chemical modification of nucleotides
- Covalent conjugation of nucleic acids
The usage of synthetic oligonucleotides for clinical applications has proven to be a rapid and rational method for drug discovery. Creative Biolabs can get oligonucleotide-based compounds with drug-like properties by placing the chemical modifications in their structure. To achieve these, the chemical structure of the oligonucleotide needs to be optimized through various modifications including sugar, backbone, nucleobase, and 3'- and 5'-terminal and conjugate modifications.
