During the pre-discovery step of the medicines development process, unmet needs are determined and investment decisions are made.
Medicine Discovery and Development
Vaccines are biological preparations developed from modified versions of the micro-organisms that cause a disease. Vaccines improve or convey immunity to particular diseases, usually in an effort to prevent or cure disease.
Once a target receptor molecule or an enzyme has been identified, scientists begin to look for potential compounds that will interact with the target to correct disease-related activity.These molecules go through a long and careful process to be developed into medicines.
