Drug discovery is the process through which potential new medicines are recognized and comprises an extensive range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry and pharmacology. The integration of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetic parameters in non-clinical pharmacology studies is a key characteristic in drug discovery for efficacy and safety assessment, in the particular for the translation from the non-clinical to  clinical field and process of drug discovery include  the identification of candidates, synthesis, characterization, screening, and assays for therapeutic efficacy whereas modern drug discovery involves the identification of screening hits, medicinal chemistry and optimization of those hits to increase the affinity, selectivity, efficacy/potency, metabolic stability, and oral bioavailability. The "final product" of drug discovery is a patent on the potential drug.

Natural products (secondary metabolites) have been more successful source of potential drug leads. Natural products still play a major role as starting material for drug discovery. There are several sources for natural products for drug discovery like plant sources, microbial sources, and marine sources. Natural products are very large in numbers with an excellent chemical diversity. Natural products discovery can be approached by using Cell-Based assays, Biochemical assays and newer drug discovery. Natural products have played a key role in Pharma research, as many medicines are either natural products or derivatives.

The chief impartial of pre-clinical studies is to define the safe dose for first-in-man study and assess a product's safety profile.  Pre-clinical development also recognized as pre-clinical studies and non-clinical studies .In the drug development, preclinical development, is a phase study which prior to earlier clinical trials can begin, and during which important possibility, iterative testing and drug safety data is composed. Generally, only one in every 5,000 compounds that arrives drug discovery to the stage of pre-clinical development befits as an approved drug. These pre-clinical studies involve local toxicity studies such as acute, sub-acute, chronic toxicity studies and systemic toxicity studies such as genotoxicity and carcinogenicity studies.

Drug design, frequently called as rational drug design, is the resourceful process of discovering new medications based happening the knowledge of a biological target. The saying "drug design" is to also known as ligand design. This molecule design will bind tightly to its target. While design techniques for prediction of binding affinity are practically successful but there are many other properties, such as bioavailability, metabolic half-life, side effects, etc., that  must be enhanced before a ligand can become a safe and efficacious drug. The normal cost of developing new drug molecules and the period taken to market them is high. Molecular Modelling methods also known as Computational methods. These techniques can be utilized to speed up drug discovery process for earning new drug molecules. Reliant on the context and the rigor, the subject is often stated to as ‘molecular graphics’, ‘molecular visualizations’, ‘computational chemistry’, or ‘computational quantum chemistry’.

In discovery procedure comprises the initial stages of research, which are intended to recognize an investigational drug and perform primary tests in the lab. This first stage of the process takes   three to six years. By the end, investigators hope to identify a capable drug aspirant to further study in the lab and in animal models, and then in people. These developments offer great ability, but also add complexity to the R&D process. In order to ensure the safety and efficacy of personalized therapies that are used along with diagnostics, clinical trial protocols must be improved and increased.

Molecular mechanics is most commonly used to estimate the strength of the intermolecular interaction between the small molecule and its biological target. It can also be used to provide semi-quantitative prediction of the binding affinity.  This method will be able to predict affinity before a compound is synthesized and hence only one compound needs to be synthesized. Computational methods have accelerated finding by decreasing the number of iterations required and must often provide novel structures.

Formulation studies involve developing a preparation of the drug which is both stable and acceptable to the patient. Formulation studies are important to do a lot of formulation studies in order to detect the point of incorporation. Formulation studies must focus on other factors like particle size, polymorphism, pH and solubility, in order to check whether these factors will effect on bioavailability of the drug or not.

 The drug must be combined with inactive ingredients by a method which ensures that the quantity of drug present is consistent in each dosage unit e.g. each tablet. The word formulation is often used in a way which includes dosage forms.

The introduction of biotechnology-derived pharmaceuticals for clinical use has frequently required for the application of unique approaches to evaluating their safety in preclinical studies. There is abundant assortment among these products, which comprise the gene and cellular therapies, monoclonal antibodies, human-derived recombinant regulatory proteins, blood products, and vaccines. There will be distinctive product issues for many of the biological therapies that may definite precise modifications to protocol design and may raise additional safety concerns. Clinical trials are observations which are finished in clinical research and are accompanied only after they have received health authority/ethics committee approval in the country where approval of the therapy is required. These authorities are liable for screening the risk/benefit ratio of the trial. Their approval does not mean that the therapy is 'safe' or effective, only that the trial may be conducted.
