The pharmaceutical industry channels an important proportion of total research in most developed countries. In Europe, for example, it represents about 13% of total R&D. In recent years, pharmaceutical companies have been accused of devoting their resources mainly to minor improvements over existing medicines that require short clinical trials and have a small risk of not being accepted. The provision functions were an integral part of a large company’s R&D function but nowadays they are most likely to be outsourced under contract to external societies specializing in a particular service, especially if these activities are not seen to offer a competitive advantage to the company

Drug resistance is the reduction in efficiency of a medication such as an antimicrobial or an antineoplastic drugs in treating a disease .This term is used in the context of resistance that pathogens have developed that is, resistance has evolved and Drug tolerance is a pharmacological concept which is mainly used to reduce the reaction to the drug in the repeated use and increasing in the dose may revert the drugs effect


\r\n Drug repositioning .the process of finding new uses of existing drugs, has been gaining popularity in recent years. The availability of several established clinical drug libraries and rapid advances in disease biology, genomics and bioinformatics has accelerated the pace of both activity-based and in silico drug repositioning. Drug repositioning has attracted particular attention from the communities engaged in anticancer drug discovery due to the combination of great demand for new anticancer drugs and the availability of a wide variety of cell- and target-based screening assays. With the successful clinical introduction of a number of non-cancer drugs for cancer treatment, drug repositioning now became a powerful alternative strategy to discover and develop novel anticancer drug candidates from the existing drug space. In this review, recent successful examples of drug repositioning for anticancer drug discovery from non-cancer drugs will be discussed.




Pharamacognosy is the branch concerned about therapeutic drugs obtained from plants or other natural sources. It is likewise characterized as the investigation of the physical, chemical, biochemical and organic properties of drugs, drug substances which are origin from nature sources. Phytochemistry is in the investigation of phytochemicals in plants and other characteristic sources. Phytochemicals are   chemicals derived from plants. At the end of the day the terms are regularly used to portray the substantial number of essential and auxiliary metabolic compounds found in plants. Phytochemicals are having properties, for example, protection against insect attacks and diseases. They likewise show various defensive capacities for people moreover

Drug discovery targeting novel mechanisms has become extremely expensive and hazardous. The annual first-in-class drug approvals have not been acceptable in the past decade despite an increased R&D budget. Follow-on databases targeting proven mechanisms are less hazardous and expensive but can produce drugs with evocative differentiations and thus can play an significant supportive role


Novel Drug delivery System refers to the formulations, systems and technologies for transporting a pharmaceutical compound in the body as it is desirable to safely achieve its desired therapeutic effects.

The  main aim of this review is to develop the evolving processes in cardiovascular and oncology drug discovery and development within a large pharmaceutical company. Importance is placed on the contrast between the academic and industrial research operating environments, which can influence the efficiency of research relationship between the two constituencies, but which plays such an important role in drug development.


In spite of development of various new drugs, several challenges & problems are untouched and i.e. why return of our resources is necessary for the solving of the problem, development of new drugs, and new methods of treatment. Regulatory requirements and commitments have elevated heavily day by day and this lead to rise in both the trial size and the length and hence the overall cost of the development process becomes very high. The selection of the novel drug from a variety of solution is also a challenge and the development procedure is also very hectic. But current effort of development of drugs using innovative technologies becomes ineffective due to expensive clinical and preclinical data studies


Toxicology is a scientific subject which is mainly , overlapping with biology,pharmacology ,chemistry , and medicine, that involves the study of the adverse effects of chemical substances on living organisms


Combinely they are the complete process of detecting a new drug  substance and bringing it to market, Drug  Discovery may involve repeat of chemical libraries, identification of the active ingredient from a natural remedy or design resulting from an understanding of the target
