A plated array of approximately 450 small molecules that have a history of use in human clinical trials. The collection was assembled by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through the Molecular Libraries Roadmap Initiative as part of its mission to enable the use of compound screens in biomedical research.
Similar collections of FDA approved drugs have proven to be rich sources of undiscovered bioactivity and therapeutic potential. The clinically tested compounds in the NCC are highly drug-like with known safety profiles. These compounds can provide excellent starting points for medicinal chemistry optimization and, for high-affinity targets, may even be appropriate for direct human use in new disease areas.
