Summary of "NMR based metabolomics: An exquisite and facile method for evaluating therapeutic efficacy and screening drug toxicity."

Metabolomics is an analytical approach to metabolism and involves quantitative and comparative analysis of low-molecular-weight metabolites in body fluids or cellular/tissues extracts. Owing to its ability to reveal disease-specific metabolic patterns or metabolic changes produced in response to a therapeutic intervention; it is gaining widespread applications virtually in all aspects of biomedical and pharmaceutical research pertaining to human healthcare management. It has also started playing a strategic role in pharmacological and toxicological research for evaluating therapeutic efficacy/safety of promising drug candidates either alone or in conjunction with other omics tools such as genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics. The metabolic profiling capabilities of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy along with pattern recognition methods have successfully been applied for identifying diagnostic panel of biomarkers, evaluating drug efficacy/safety, screening toxicity and disease mechanism. Particularly, the interest in applying NMR-based metabolomics for the assessment of therapeutic efficacy and safety is increasing among drug researchers and drug regulators owing to its non-destructive, non-selective and minimal sample preparation requirement. On top of this, it offers the potential for high-throughput (i.e. >100 samples a day is attainable) and provides highly reproducible results. In this review, we will discuss some of the recent developments related to NMR based metabolomics followed by some recent literature examples to highlight its potential in (a) the evaluation of therapeutic efficacy and safety of lead discovery compounds, (b) monitoring disease status and recovery after treatment and (c) identification and evaluation of biomarkers of systemic/organ-specific toxicity. Additionally, the review will also highlight its role to facilitate clinical trial testing and improve post-approval drug monitoring.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cognitive mechanism based on expectations or beliefs about one's ability to perform actions necessary to produce a given effect. It is also a theoretical component of behavior change in various therapeutic treatments. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)

The relative equivalency in the efficacy of different modes of treatment of a disease, most often used to compare the efficacy of different pharmaceuticals to treat a given disease.

Work that is the report of a pre-planned, usually controlled, clinical study of the safety and efficacy of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques based on a small number of healthy persons and conducted over the period of about a year in either the United States or a foreign country.

Work that is a report of a pre-planned, usually controlled, clinical study of the safety and efficacy of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques based on several hundred volunteers, including a limited number of patients, and conducted over a period of about two years in either the United States or a foreign country.

Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
