  1. RFA-DA-25-054: Harnessing Artificial Intelligence and Polypharmacology to Discover Pharmacotherapeutics for Substance Use Disorders (R43/R44 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

    Release Date: 01-29-2024Open Date: 06-25-2024Due Date: 07-25-2024Close Date: 07-26-2024

    Background: Drug discovery and development is a high-cost, high-risk, and time-consuming endeavor where the failure rate of therapeutic candidates that enter clinical trials is 90%. Because of this, in recent years, artificial intelligence (AI), including machine learning ( ML) technologies, has been embraced to reduce clinical failure rates and to speed up drug discovery. AI/ML technologies are ...

    Drug development is challenging, particularly for Central Nervous System (CNS) medications. It takes approximately 18 years to move a potential CNS medication from its initial discovery phase to the marketplace, often costing several billion dollars. The failure rate is high (only 8% of new CNS compounds entering Phase I studies will reach the market) and contributes to the high costs and slow rat ...

    Substance use disorder (SUD) clinical trials traditionally perform recruitment, enrollment, interventions, as well as information collection at the clinical trial sites. In-person visits at the sites are used for screening, assignment to interventions, treatment or other intervention, follow up, as well as collection of information from participants and entering it in a database. Some of the in-p ...
