Research & Developement


 

 


Gylus Pharmaceuticals strongly believes in implementing the philosophy of enhancing and developing exclusive quality Pharmaceutical Products. This has been possible mainly because of the efforts of our highly experienced and dedicated professional team of R&D Researchers and Chemists and of course not to forget our autonomous state-of-the-art R&D Department. Our committed team persistently focuses on developing new molecules and formulations and also ensures advancement of stability and efficacy of existing products. We constantly carry out R&D activities on molecules, which go off patent. Also Research for new chemical entity is of prime importance to us.

Besides we have observed that execution of a Product Development Scheme, which is at par with the current market demands, constitutes a momentous contribution to the Pharmaceutical Industry.

The Formulation Development Team fortified with hi-tech instruments concentrates on the development and commercialization of cost effective formulations with enhanced bioavailability.

Gylus Pharmaceuticals is committed to continually developing specialty generics, distinguished products and registering them across markets. We strongly believe our success depends on a vivacious and proactive R& D role in order to ensure production of strong pipeline of new products which in turn will facilitate us to accomplish our vision and mission.


  Drug Developement


Drug development is a long, expensive, and failure-prone process. It requires cutting-edge scientific skills, and collaboration across multiple disciplines within the pharmaceutical industry and among educational institutions, research laboratories, government regulators and healthcare professionals.

It takes 8-12 years on an average for a new drug to be developed for human use, and only 10 of around 10,000 substances identified as potential drugs will make it to the human testing stage. What’s more, only about one in 10,000 substances identified as potential drugs on preliminary screening will eventually be marketable.

Potential new medicines are patented as soon as they are discovered, and the discoverer usually has less than 10 years of exclusive marketing rights remaining by the time regulators approve a medicine for marketing.

Drug development goes through three basic stages: discovery, full development and clinical trials.

  • Drug discovery: The process begins with a new idea directed at chemically modifying a disease process. It involves developing a drug that will react with a new molecular target within the human body. The idea is usually generated from a thorough knowledge and understanding of disease processes and a continuing involvement with research in the specific therapeutic area of interest.
  • Drug development is a risky business. More than half of candidate drugs that look promising in the research lab will ultimately fail. More than a quarter of drugs that reach the clinical trial stage will be rejected as ineffective. However, the wealth of genomic information now available through public databases – in particular, the rapidly growing number of known associations between diseases and specific genes – may significantly improve the drug-development success rate. At least, success rates will improve if drug developers let genomics guide their choice of molecular targets for research, according to a team of pharmaceutical industry and academic scientists.
  • Full development: Drugs that are shown to work the best in Phase 2 studies have the least side effects, are expected to be the most economically viable, and are mass tested on thousands of patients. This phase of drug development is called Phase 3 or full development. New medicines are very expensive in the early years of sales to pay for the cost of drug development, publicize the benefits of the new therapeutic option, and provide returns to shareholders of the company.
  • Clinical research: Human trials are carried out when pre-clinical data demonstrates that it may be useful in treating a disease, and reasonably safe for initial testing in humans, among other things. A clinical trial has to be properly designed and planned to provide reliable efficacy and safety data. It also has to be approved regulatory authorities and by an Ethics Committee that permits the trial to be conducted at a particular institute.

This helps us to deliver new and value innovative medical solutions to market. In the pharmaceutical industry, continuous innovation in business model and technologies lead to the emergence of drugs designed for smaller and precisely diagnosed diseases.
