Aug 5 First Friday Bioscience – How Concerts Novel DCE Platform Supercharges Drug Development and Compound Efficacy

Full Title: : How Concert’s Novel DCE Platform® Supercharges Drug Development and Compound Efficacy

Speaker: Scott Harbeson, VP, Concert Pharamaceutical

Host: Medsupply Partners


Concert Pharmaceuticals is a clinical stage biotechnology company pioneering the use of deuterium in medicinal chemistry. Using their proprietary DCE Platform® (Deuterated Chemical Entity Platform) for replacement of specific hydrogen atoms with deuterium, approved drugs, advanced clinical candidates or previously studied compounds are transformed into new compounds that retain the pharmacological effectiveness of the validated drug molecules but, in select cases, improve metabolic profiles. Some compounds can be improved with deuterium substitution to provide better pharmacokinetic or metabolic properties and thereby enhance clinical safety, tolerability or efficacy.

Concert Pharmaceuticals has developed a robust pipeline of new medicines that offer improved ways to target a broad range of disease areas, including genetic diseases, autoimmune diseases, CNS disorders, inflammatory diseases, among others.
