ECNP Medicines Chest
ECNP would like to assist clinical researchers obtain access to pharmacological tools important for the pursuit of their studies. Frequently, many potentially useful drugs are not exploited in clinical research for a variety of reasons: for example, they are poorly documented by companies in the event that their development is discontinued. In addition, clinical researchers are frequently unaware which agents are potentially available for research purposes, how to acquire such drugs, and the conditions under which they can be exploited.
We hope to help overcome such problems by acting as an intermediary between companies and researchers, and already several pharmaceutical companies have agreed to participate in this endeavour.
Below is a link to a list of drugs that have already been identified as useful research compounds, but this is not exhaustive and ECNP would be pleased to hear of any others that you feel would be worthwhile adding to the list.
