Infographic: Do You Know the Cost of Predictive Toxicology?

It costs millions to get a drug from conception to development stages, as well as
several years of research. However, a key challenge in the pharmaceutical industry
is that scientists can put all this work and money into a compound, only to find it has
unacceptable toxicology and they have to return to the drawing board. Indeed, the most
recent figures suggest the cost of discovering and developing a drug is almost $1bn.

Toxicity issues cost the pharmaceutical industry billions and have damaged many
a company’s reputation. With budget cuts hitting hard in the R&D field, it is imperative
to validate the worth of predictive methods as they continue to facilitate the reduction
in late stage drug attrition.
