CNS Drug Development Challenge

CNS Drug Development Challenge

CNS drugs exhibit the lowest approval success rates due to multiple challenges such as lack of efficacy in early and advanced stages of development, Poor target selection / engagement, poor translation from pre-clinical models and disease heterogeneity. BNA may contribute in CNS research and drug development by adding new objective endpoints, assisting in understanding drug mechanism, identifying placebo effects, mapping cognitive functions, serving as a screening tool, identifying subtypes and treatment protocol success and failure likelihood prediction.

CNS drug research has not delivered truly innovative drugs for the treatment of CNS disorders in the past decades. This is the direct result of an insufficient understanding of the pathophysiology of the disorder, a limited predictive validity
of preclinical behavioral and pharmacological models, a lack of reliable biomarkers to quantify treatment effects and, as a consequence, an excessive reliance on subjective measures.

Novel diagnostic, response and predictive biomarkers to improve CNS drug development for CNS related disorders are urgently needed.
