Development of Marine Anticoagulant Drug

Development of Marine Anticoagulant Drug

Thrombosis remains the leading cause of death worldwide. With existing antithrombotic agents, bleeding remains a major drawback of current treatments. This raises clinical concerns in all patients receiving antithrombotic therapy. Novel antithrombotic agents from the ocean offer a promising therapeutic alternative for this pathology. However, for any potential new molecule to serve as a true replacement for existing drugs, it must demonstrate comparable anticoagulant potential with minimal off-target effects. The marine environment harbors diverse species consisting of a wide variety of therapeutic molecules. Marine organisms are affected by different environmental conditions compared to terrestrial organisms, and marine organisms produce chemically and structurally unique molecules/metabolites as an adaptive strategy to survive in water bodies. The relevance of marine antithrombotic agents, especially sulfated polysaccharides, is largely due to their unique mechanism of action and absence of bleeding. In recent years, many investigations have been carried out in this field, and the results have confirmed the role of potential marine molecules as alternative antithrombotic drugs.

Our Services

Our investment in state-of-the-art facilities and highly trained specialists underscores our commitment to delivering a positive client experience at all stages of drug development. Throughout the lifecycle of your drug development project, you'll have a consistent team and easy, regular access to the functions you need to move your project forward.

  • Marine Organism Collection and Screening
    We have established a large collection of marine organisms, including sponges, algae, and fungi, sourced from diverse marine environments worldwide.
  • Marine-derived Compound Isolation and Characterization
    We employ chromatographic techniques, spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry to identify and characterize anticoagulant compounds, determining their chemical structures and physicochemical properties.
  • In Vitro Anticoagulant Activity Testing
    We evaluate parameters such as clotting time, inhibition of coagulation factors, platelet aggregation, and anti-thrombin activity to determine the potency and mechanism of action of the marine-derived compounds.
  • Assay Development and Screening
    Our scientists evaluate new antithrombotic drug candidates at the cellular, molecular, and biochemical levels.
