Market Reports

Ion Channel Assays in the Drug Discovery Process,
June 2002

Ion channels play an important role in numerous cell types and occur as large families of related genes with cell-specific statement patterns. A new report addresses the need for a comprehensive study within the field. It identifies 23 companies with a strong focus in this area, considers the available and future possibilities in ion channel assays, an outlook at the competitive landscape of companies in this field, and guides the user to technologies that suit different segments of the drug discovery process.

GPCRs: The Targets of Today's Drugs and Tomorrow's Blockbusters, June 2002
G Protein-Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) have proven to be a highly amenable target class to successful therapeutic intervention. Of the approximate 500 drugs currently marketed, more than 30% are modulators of GPCR function. By 2000, 26 of the top 100 pharmaceutical products were compounds that target GPCRs, accounting for sales of over $23.5 billion. This represents a growing figure of approximately 9% of total global pharmaceutical sales.
