The concepts of high-throughput (HT) screening and combinatorial synthesis have been integrated into the pharmaceutical discovery process, but are not yet commonplace in the pharmaceutical development arena. Emerging strategies to speed pharmaceutical development and capture solid form diversity of pharmaceutical substances have resulted in the emergence of(More)
The past year has seen significant advances in the reduction to practice of inkjet dispensing technology in drug discovery applications. Although much of the work in this area has been done by relatively few 'early innovators', broader acceptance of the feasibility of the use of inkjet dispensing is on the rise. Of the three main areas of drug discovery -(More)
Three crystal forms of acetaminophen were prepared and characterized using a newly developed high-throughput crystallization platform, CrystalMax. The platform consists of design software, robotic sample dispensing and handling, and high-throughput microanalytics and is capable of running thousands of crystallizations in parallel using several different(More)
Analysis of biological samples is problematic because of their complex composition. Reversed phase liquid chromatography (RPLC), size exclusion chromatography (SEC), and, more recently, capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) are routinely used for the analysis of these samples, but are eventually limited because they are one-dimensional (1-D) methods. As(More)
This presentation describes the application of novel high throughput physical-chemical technologies to the pharmaceutical discovery and development process. The rationale for such platforms is described in light of the changes that have occurred in the biological and chemical processes leading to drug target evaluation and lead identification. Several high(More)
Since the introduction of combinatorial chemistry, compound libraries have undergone a significant increase in size and diversity. The ensuing expansion and diversification of compound libraries have resulted in increased demand for analytical throughput. Following the evolution of new technologies for generating lead compounds and targets and the desire to(More)
We investigated the influence of carbohydrate on the binding of human rheumatoid factors (RF) to the Fc fragment of IgG. The monoclonal RF studied were derived from the serum of patients with mixed cryoglobulinemia or from hybridomas generated from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus. Polyclonal RF were derived from(More)
The rubella virus (RV) genome was detected using polymerase chain amplification techniques in several peripheral blood cell populations in patients with adult Still's disease (ASD) and normal controls (NC), including mononuclear cells (PBMC), B-cells, T-cells, monocyte/macrophages, and polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN). Five of 6 ASD patients and 3 of 6 NC(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this work was to replace Cremophor-EL in the commercial paclitaxel intravenous formulation, Taxol, using a novel high-throughput combinatorial formulation approach. METHODS Full factorial combinations of 12 generally regarded as safe excipients at three different concentrations were screened using an automated liquid dispenser. The(More)
