Drug discovery process
The process by which new candidate medications are discovered is called as Drug discovery process. Generally, based on the knowledge of properties such as molecular geometry, activity of functional groups and electronic structure a drug is discovered. Modern drug discovery involves the identification of screening hits, medicative chemistry and improvement of these hits to extend the affinity, property efficacy/potency, metabolic stability and oral bioavailability. Drug discovery is done by pharmaceutical companies, with research assistance from universities. The final product of drug discovery is a patent on the potential drug.
