Article excerpt

Prous Science-a provider of information on R&D, pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, and medicine-has announced the release of three new R&D databases on CD-ROM: Ensemble, a database covering more than 100,000 bioactive compounds in the drug research and development pipeline; Synthline, a structure-searchable synthesis database with over 1,000 schemes of synthesis; and MFline, an experimental pharmacology database containing more than 73,000 records.

According to the company, Ensemble provides essential information, including chemical structures and developmental phase data, on compounds in all stages of discovery, development, and marketing worldwide, allowing users to gain access to the most up-to-date and complete information available on a given drug. Included are references to the patent literature, reports from biomedical journals, presentations from congresses and symposia, and hard-to-locate company communications. The database integrates data, text, and image management in a user-friendly, Windows-based environment and comes complete with its own proprietary search and display software.

Synthline presents in structure-searchable format the schemes of synthesis for drugs currently on the market or in development worldwide. According to the company, this enables users to find different approaches to the synthesis of a given drug, discover new markets for chemical intermediates, explore needs for intermediates not yet on the market, and more. …
