The emerging importance of receptor kinetics in drug discovery: what goes (k)on must come (k)off

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


The characterization of receptor binding kinetics of preclinical drug candidates is now becoming more readily appreciated as a key addition to the discovery process. Benefits of studying kinetics include increased understanding of prolonged duration of action, ability to differentiate between different pre-clinical candidates and in the understanding of differential in vivo efficacies. At present these effects are dependent on the suitability of a radioligand and therefore limits which receptors and molecules can be investigated.
