Century old rule of Chemistry overturned – major implications for drug delivery
Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/pressreleases/century_old_rule/
A new study by research chemists at the University of Warwick has challenged a century old rule of pharmacology that defined how quickly key chemicals can pass across cell walls.
The new observations of the Warwick researchers suggest that the real transport rates could be up to a hundred times slower than predicted by the century old “Overton’s Rule”.
This could have major implications for the development and testing of many future drugs.
