Launch of New ADME Guide
Cyprotex PLC (AIM:CRX), a specialist ADME-Tox and Bioscience Contract Research Organisation, today announce the launch of their new ADME guide titled ‘Everything you need to know about ADME’. ADME is an acronym for absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion, which are the processes occurring to a pharmaceutical drug following dosing. Knowledge of these processes assist us in understanding drug concentrations in the blood and tissues within the body, which in turn influences efficacy, toxicity and potential drug-drug interactions.
Our original ADME guide was launched back in 2006 and since this time, Cyprotex have distributed thousands of copies to our fellow scientists in the industry. Because of developments in the industry over the past decade, the new guide, which is the 2nd edition, is very different to the original version, and contains largely new material. The new guide complements our existing ‘Mechanisms of Drug-Induced Toxicity’ guide and our ‘DDI Regulatory Guidance’ handbook.
Anthony Baxter PhD, Chief Executive Officer of Cyprotex, comments on the launch of the new ADME guide, ‘We have been offering ADME services since the inception of the company in 1999. Through our corporate responsibility policy, we aim to share our experience and knowledge in the field for the benefit of our customers and wider scientific community. Our guides have proved extremely popular and provide a valuable resource for scientists in a range of disciplines who want to have an up-to-date overview of the current testing methods and how the data are interpreted in both a drug discovery and development setting .’
