OVERVIEW
Pharmaceutical industry is facing huge challenge not only from the infectious diseases that require better treatments but also the non-communicable diseases (NCDs). According to WHO, NCDs are by far the leading cause of death worldwide. In 2016, they were responsible for 71% (41 million) of the 57 million deaths which occurred globally.  The major NCDs responsible for these deaths included cardiovascular diseases, cancers diabetes and liver related conditions such as Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)(https://www.who.int/nmh/publications/ncd-profiles-2018/en/. According to FDA, there has to be a disruption in the way drugs are developed to meet the demand for precision medicine and hence the strategies being explored include big data, biological information and cutting-edge analytics.

PHARMA

The process of bringing a medicine to the market is a long, difficult and costly process which takes between 10-15 years, from initial discovery in the laboratory, through the phases of clinical testing to being licensed and available on the market. Drug Induced Liver Injury (DILI) remains the leading cause of attrition of compounds in drug development and is currently difficult to predict using in vitro cytotoxicity screening and animal studies.

The risks of ‘silent’ hepatotoxic drugs getting introduced into clinical trials, is very high garnering huge financial losses for drug companies through withdrawals and late stage clinical failures.

Drug toxicity remains a crucial aspect to drug discovery and development in the pharmaceutical industry. The use of animal models and cell lines in most cases result in delayed or failed early to late preclinical phase.
