The traditional drug discovery strategy of pursuing "one compound - one target" has had difficulties delivering novel therapies for complex diseases currently lacking adequate treatments. An alternative and complementary approach is the design of multi-targeted modulators simultaneously addressing multiple pathological mechanisms or overcoming pathway robustness. In this study, we propose a methodology to increase the probability of success for developing dual-acting modulators by systematically and rationally evaluating all dual-acting modulator opportunities within a specific disease area. This approach employs a combination of a five-step medicinal chemistry evaluation and a two-step biological analysis to help select the optimal target combination. It provides a novel methodology suitable for widespread application across disease areas. To exemplify the power of this approach, we focus on an analysis of the gastrointestinal (GI) disease area to identify opportunities supported by current literature data.
