Ref No:KCRB01/021
Sub Class: Pharmaceutical and Healthcare
Technology Outcome: Product
Development Status: Preliminary Research
IPR Status: Not Patented
Technology Description: Drug conjugates are being designed which not only inhibit the prostaglandin production but also help scavenges out the radicals that initiate the inflammatory process. Such conjugates are prepared using combinatorial synthesis, wherein the lead molecules are selected on the basis of selective COX-2 activities and enhanced radical scavenging capabilities. The lead compounds are evaluated for their toxicities and efficacies in animal models. The application area for this product is drug discovery program of pharmaceutical industry.The competitive advantages are: (i) Selective toxicity (ii) Prolonged relief from pain (iii) Superior anti-inflammatory properties.
