drugs sometimes run out faster than manufactures can renew supplies Now researchers have developed a refrigerator-sized machine that could make such shortages a thing of the past Instead of making drugs in huge batches the device is able to synthesize—one by one and as they are needed—thousands of doses per day of a variety of pharmaceuticals Such machines could someday help pharmaceutical companies meet unexpected surges in demand and help health officials respond to disasters and medical emergencies worldwide by producing medicines when and where they are needed The process of making drugs is normally long and involved Chemists and engineers must not only figure out the suite of chemical reactions needed to produce their desired compounds but they must also purify them add inactive ingredients to stabilize them and have the mixtures pass approval by regulators This process can take years One upshot is that pharmaceutical companies tend to make their drug compounds in large batches stockpiling the starting materials in sites around the world Such batch manufacturing works well for big-market drugs with a steady demand like Lipitor and Sudafed But the process often isn’t economical for making so-called orphan drugs that are needed only in rare cases such as a compound called bis-choline tetrathiomolybdate that is currently being studied to treat Wilson disease a rare heredity disease that leads to the accumulation of toxic levels of copper in the body Moreover if major production facilities go offline supplies of even more common drugs can dry up quickly According the US Food and Drug Administration there are dozens of such shortages at any given time To avoid such problems researchers have been working to develop automated chemical syntheses using a setup called “flow chemistry” Rather than running reactions in batches one after the other flow chemists pass starting compounds through thin snaking tubes and carry out the needed series of reactions one after the other as the compounds travel down the molecular assembly line Such continuous manufacturing can speed the production of thousands of doses of a drug from months to days and eliminate the risk of intermediate compounds undergoing unwanted reactions as they wait for the next synthetic step to be carried out Two years ago for example researchers led by chemist Timothy Jamison and chemical engineers Klavs Jensen and Allan Myerson at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge unveiled a boxcar-sized flow-chemistry setup that produced large amounts of a blood pressure medicine called aliskiren hemifumarate Such setups could be useful for drug companies to better control the production of their medicines But the apparatus was too large and cumbersome to be moved around to different locations with ease For their current experiment the MIT researchers set out to shrink their apparatus and make it more versatile They designed new compact flow chemistry setups to carry out the dozen or more steps needed to synthesize different drugs and formulate them as medicines The result reported today in Science is a refrigerator-sized apparatus that can be reconfigured to produce any one of four different liquid medicines an antihistamine an anesthetic an antidepressant and an antianxiety drug Such relatively portable flow-chemistry setups could dramatically improve efforts to ensure medicines are available around the world when needed says Tyler McQuade a chemist and program director of the Battlefield Medicines program at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in Arlington Virginia “This is an excellent first step” None of the four medicines produced in the current experiment are particularly large or complex molecules McQuade adds But he notes that there are hundreds of other drugs with a similar level of complexity that might be produced with such a setup That could allow large pharmacies to ramp up production of drugs in response to surging demand In the future drug synthesizers could also make it cheaper and easier to produce drugs when only small volumes are needed McQuade and others say such as in clinical trials and to combat rare diseases such as cystic fibrosis and narcolepsy Portable drug synthesizers could be vital in combating localized outbreaks of diseases such as influenza in which demand for a particular drug spikes says Martin Burke a chemist at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign “It’s hard to predict when an outbreak will occur” Burke says Drug synthesizers “can increase or decrease production of medicines when there is a need” Written by Agencies | Chennai | Published: April 11 2012 5:57 pm Related News Operations at Madras Atomic Power Station (MAPS) in Kalpakkam near

businesses before it expires next month And although all sides agree that start-up companies are an important engine in fostering innovation there are some big disagreements about the program’s impact on academic research funding and the kinds of companies eligible for support The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program which began in 1982 is funded by taxing the research budgets of 11 federal agencies The current 25% set-aside would grow to 35% by 2020 under a bill (S1233) passed last week by the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship (The portion spent on a younger sibling that targets university start-ups the Small Business Technology Transfer program would grow from 03% to 06%) The House version (HR2965) of the reauthorization to be taken up on Wednesday by the science committee and possibly Thursday by the small business committee provides for no such increase That’s fine with the biomedical research community which isn’t thrilled at the prospect of a bigger bite being taken out of federal support for basic research at the National Institutes of Health which runs the second largest SBIR program after the Department of Defense It’s also the position taken by the Obama Administration as outlined in a 2 June letter to Senator Mary Landrieu (D–LA) chair of the Senate panel A last-minute change in the Senate bill however includes NIH in the expansion possibly a reaction to a decision by Congress in February to exclude NIH’s $10 billion boost in the stimulus package from the SBIR set-aside Among legislators the size of the set-aside isn’t the biggest bone of contention The real battle is likely to be over how to ease a controversial restriction on participation by venture capital firms imposed by the Small Business Administration in 2002 That change blocked companies receiving a majority of their funding from venture capital firms from applying for grants on the grounds that the program was designed to help the proverbial entrepreneur in his garage not a spinoff from some giant company or a gamble by deep-pocketed financiers The biotech industry and NIH officials disagree They say that the exclusion is counterproductive and has prevented the agency from funding those companies most likely to hit the jackpot The House bill attempts to restore the status quo by lifting the restriction but adding a proviso that no single venture capital firm could hold a majority stake in a start-up The Senate bill in trying to strike a balance would allow NIH to spend up to 18% of its money on grants to such firms with other agencies limited to 8% (The numbers are based on a 2006 report by the General Accounting Office that found 18% of NIH’s SBIR awards in 2001–-04 went to companies that had received money from venture capitalists The DOD figure was 7%) The White House waffles on the issue telling Landrieu that small businesses "should not be crowded out of the program" but that it’s also important that "the most promising small companies are not arbitrarily restricted or excluded because of their capital structure" A neutral party in the debate the National Research Council of the National Academies says in a new report out this month that the provision is trying to fix a problem that doesn’t exist Its survey of companies that had received Phase II grants (up to $750000 after a $100000 proof-of-principle Phase I award) found that as few as 12%—and perhaps only 4%—of companies that rely on venture-capital funding received SBIR awards (The study covered awards made from 1992 through 2002) It argues for a return to the pre-2002 status quo saying that "the impact of the ruling falls disproportionately on the most promising firms—those repeatedly selected by NIH for their promising technologies and venture investors for their commercial potential" Both bills would raise the current guidelines on the size of the typical awards now $100000 for Phase I and $750000 for Phase II to keep up with inflation The House is more generous going up to $2 million for Phase II and $250000 for Phase I (The Senate levels are $1 million and $150000 respectively) The House would extend the program for 2 years whereas the Senate’s bill runs until 2023 The clock is ticking on a compromise The programs expire on 31 July and although all sides say they want to finish work by then it’s more likely that Congress will need to approve an extension into the fall so legislators can keep plugging away” police said.
