Reduce Drug Discovery Times
It currently takes on average 15 years and a billion dollars for obtain a FDA approved drug through
the conventional drug discovery pipeline. In particular, the first drug discovery phase takes
around 3-5 years. There are many sub-processes within drug discovery which make it expensive and
timely, and ExtractPharma’s comprehensive AI ecosystem simplifies and improves many of these sub-processes.
For example, obtaining the Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) for the different
candidate compounds, or exploring potential compounds that adhere to fundamental principles such
as ADMET or Lipinski’s Rules can all now be done in an automated way with a higher accuracy.
Rather than relying on experience and manual attempts, de novo designs of chemical compounds with
certain desired properties such as hydrophobicity can also be generated automatically, thus significantly reducing drug discovery times.
