The safety and efficacy of therapeutic drugs still requires improvement. However, the advent of both systems biology and precision medicine has stimulated a rethink on the process of therapeutic drug design and polypharmacology. More recently, the definition of polypharmacology has morphed to represent therapeutic drugs that have been designed deliberately for multi-targeting that affords beneficial effects to the patient. This emerging effort has been labelled ‘Systems Pharmacology’ and the products are referred to as multi-target or systems pharmacology drugs. This episode is part 2 of 2 episodes and goes into more detail on systems pharmacology, going through definitions, combination therapy vs systems pharmacology drugs, implementation and approaches.
