Abstract:

Increasing insight into the genetics and molecular biology of cancer has resulted in the identification of an increasing number of potential molecular targets for anti-cancer drug discovery and development. These targets can be approached through exploitation of emerging structural biology,”rational“ drug design, screening of chemical libraries, or a combination of these methods. In this article we discuss the application of high-throughput screening to anti-cancer drug discovery, with special reference to approaches used at the U.S. National Cancer Institute.
