More About Drug Repositioning, Repurposing and Rescue

Drug repositioning has emerged as a potentially cost-effective and quicker alternative to provide new drugs for pharmaceutical companies’ waning pipelines. Approved drugs have already met with the FDA’s approval therefore, the early stages of drug development can be bypassed. By mining existing drugs for new uses, researchers can focus instead on the clinical testing portion of the process. This shortens the development timeline and gets new treatments to patients faster. With new technologies and approaches, drug repositioning has become more streamlined and less accidental than it was in the past. By using a more systematic approach, existing compounds are being tested for both common and neglected diseases faster and with more success.
