MP Group – AI toolkit for early-stage drug discovery

Early this year, we shared an outlook giving an overview of the role of Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery. Through our conversations with several global pharma and biotechs, we realized that, while the enthusiasm around the potential of AI is high, a shadow of skepticism looms over. A common theme in our dialogs was on explaining the advantages of AI-based interventions over the traditional methods and what to expect out of AI-based platforms. To help build a deeper perspective on AI…

Next Generation CROs – Differentiated technologies today that will pay-off tomorrow

Historically, CROs have grown by building the scales for the services that pharma cos and biotechs wanted to outsource due to a number of reasons, from reducing the overheads, to cost-effective operations, to downsizing the headcount for effective management, etc. As a result, operational efficiency, large scales and past experiences have been the key value propositions, with relatively lesser focus on differentiated offerings, of course with a few exceptions. However, with BioPharma now riding on a wave of innovative technologies,…

MP Group – Outlook of Protein Formulation Technologies – Opportunities for IV to subQ Conversion

Currently,~80% of biologics are administered intravenously due to high doses and challenges associated with high concentration protein formulation development – viscosity, stability including aggregation and volume. As a result, patients are tethered to IV infusion set-up for hours, few times a month often in a clinic or hospital, adding significant cost. Subcutaneous delivery enhances patient compliance and convenience, while significantly reducing the cost associated with hospitalization. Only a handful of technologies have attempted to address the protein formulation challenge, that…
