Pharmaceutical Research, an official journal of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists, presents papers which describe innovative research spanning the entire spectrum of drug discovery, development, evaluation, and regulatory approval. Small drug molecules, biotechnology products including genes, peptides, proteins and vaccines, and genetically engineered cells are an integral part of papers published here. Current emphasis of the journal includes the following areas: preformulation; drug delivery and targeting; formulation design, engineering, and processing; pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacogenomics; molecular biopharmaceutics and drug disposition; and computational biopharmaceutics, among others.

Pharmaceutical Research publishes twelve issues a year.

    Repurposing of kinase inhibitors for treatment of COVID-19
    There are three major needs that have yet to be met for effective management of COVID19 disease: 1) anti-viral therapies that limit viral transmission, cell entry, and replication, 2) therapies that attenuate the non-productive immune response and thus decrease end-organ damage, and 3) therapies that have an anti-fibrotic effect in patients with ARDS and thus decrease long-term sequelae of disease. Read the article above for the full review and proposal.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
