Abstract: Increasing numbers of proteins, nucleic acids and other molecular entities have been explored as therapeutic targets. A challenge in drug discovery is to decide which targets to pursue from an increasing pool of potential targets, given the fact that few innovative targets have made it to the approval list each year. Knowledge of existing drug targets (both approved and within clinical trials) is highly useful for facilitating target discovery, selection, exploration and tool development. The Therapeutic Target Database (TTD) has been developed and updated to provide information on 358 successful targets, 251 clinical trial targets and 1254 research targets in addition to 1511 approved drugs, 1118 clinical trials drugs and 2331 experimental drugs linked to their primary targets (3257 drugs with available structure data). This review briefly describes the TTD database and illustrates how its data can be explored for facilitating target and drug searches, the study of the mechanism of multi-target drugs and the development of in silico target discovery tools. © 2011 Informa UK, Ltd.
