About the Project:
The title of the project is “Preclinical pharmacokinetics and efficacy optimization of selective, potent Indoleamine-2, 3-dioxygenase inhibitors for the treatment of colorectal, breast and lung cancer”. Indoleamine-2, 3-dioxygenase (IDO) is a critical target for the treatment of cancer through immuno-oncology therapy. For a considerable amount of time, a substantial amount of research is ongoing to generate a clinical candidate for breast, colorectal and lung cancer which targets IDO. We have been able to develop efficacious molecules for this purpose. The aim of these projects is three-fold:
1.Generation of efficacious small molecules that inhibits proliferation of cancer cells by targeting IDO
2. Evaluation of physicochemical properties of new chemical entities (NCEs) developed so far.
3.Evaluation of In-vitro ADMET properties of NCEs
4.Preclinical in vivo pharmacokinetics and efficacy in rodents.
