The advantages of re-profiling

Re-profiling is the process of taking an existing compound that has been developed for a particular disease indication, and repurposing it for another disease.

The advantages of re-profiling are many, all based around the principle that there is existing knowledge about the candidate compounds. The degree of knowledge varies, depending on whether the re-profiling candidate is in active use in a patient population for an alternative indication, or has only been partially or completely through a development cycle or clinical trial.

Re-Pharm builds on these advantages to establish rapid development paths for compounds that we assess to be suitable for re-profiling.
