Novel Strategies in Drug Development Against Multifactorial Diseases
Despite the great potential of multitargeting drugs to treat multifactorial diseases, a limited number of these compounds have reached clinical trials or market. The selection of the right target combination and the design and identification of molecules endowed with a multi-bioactive profile, particularly challenging for unrelated targets, plays a key role in successful drug development. Thus, novel computational, chemical, biological, and biophysical approaches are urgently required for achieving new effective therapeutic tools towards the treatment of multifactorial diseases. This Research Topic gathers three research studies and one review.
