Innovative scientific approaches have facilitated significant progress in drug development during recent decades, offering amazing new treatment options to patients across a range of chronic diseases. However, safety and tolerability of drug candidates and newly approved drugs often remain a key concern, leading to labelling restrictions, black box warnings, and withdrawal of otherwise promising innovative medicines.
The TransBioLine project aims to develop novel safety biomarkers that will reliably indicate injury of the liver, kidneys, pancreas, blood vessels, and central nervous system for drug development purposes. By the end of the project, the team will have set up an infrastructure and processes to continue biomarker research across a comprehensive network of industry, academic institutions, and small and medium-sized enterprises, providing to the scientific community, industry and patients with detailed data across a large spectrum of advanced safety biomarkers.
