Researchers Find New Way to Identify Ideal New Drug Combinations

Researchers in the UK have discovered a new way for the creation of perfect drug combinations, which would prevent inflammation.

Scientists at the University of Manchester in the UK have discovered a way of speeding up the creation of perfect drug combinations, which could help patients recovering from stroke, heart attacks and cancer.


The researchers have found a way of identifying ideal drug combinations from billions of others which would prevent inflammation, which has evolved to help fight infection but can also be very damaging in long term disease, prolonging suffering and ultimately risking premature death.


The multi-disciplinary team of researchers, led by Professor Douglas Kell, Professor of Bioanalytical Science at The University of Manchester, developed a computer program, which rapidly sifted through nine billion different combinations of potent
