Modern methods of active ingredient research

Methods nowadays used in the drug discovery including: 

1. Target identification and target validation

2. Lead identification and optimization:

- Drug discovery from natural sources (e.g. plants, marine organisms, microbes, and animal sources)

- Applied synthetic methods (e.g. combinatorial synthesis, solid phase synthesis)

- Parallel synthesis (lead optimization)

3. Toxicological aspects during drug development

-Reactive drug metabolites

- Blocage of the hERG K+ receptor in the heart
