Repurposing existing drugs as novel cancer therapeutic
Drug repurposing or repositioning is a strategy of finding new indications for already known marketed drugs used in various clinical settings. This can give new life to drugs currently used in the clinic, or shelved drugs that failed initial tests for their main indication. This strategy has immense promise over the existing strategy of developing novel first-in-human compounds.
Costs approximately 8x less to repurpose a drug for a new indication than to develop a novel drug.
Previous clinical trial data and years of use in humans allows repurposed drugs to move more quickly to market.
Higher Success Rate
In recent years, 30% of newly FDA approved drugs were repurposed drugs.
