Harness Polypharmacology to Improve the Potential for Clinical Efficacy

Advances in systems biology are revealing a phenotypic robustness and a network structure that strongly suggests that exquisitely selective compounds, compared with multi-target drugs, may exhibit lower than desired clinical efficacy. This new appreciation of the role of polypharmacology has significant implications for the two major sources of attrition in drug development, efficacy, and toxicity. Thus defining the biological niche of each receptor as well as understanding overlapping pathways and functions provides valuable context for evaluating a compound’s liabilities and promise.

Defining the system that each receptor participates in can be approached in several ways, such as sequence similarity, potential disease implication, or transcriptional networks. By choosing a select group of receptors to study based on disease state, it is possible to better understand the biological effects of your compounds. With INDIGO's extensive portfolio of receptor assays, you can design your own panel based on a disease state or talk to our experts to assist in developing a plan of study.

What Our Customers Say

"I think if we had gone with anyone else, we would still be running assays rather than having confidence in the data that we've gained with INDIGO."


Principal Scientist

"The fact that they do have this comprehensive panel…essentially you can pick and choose which of the members of the panel you want to run."



"The overall experience went smoothly, and I got valuable data that helped me advance several molecules through the discovery pipeline."
