Thomson Reuters Adds Routes of Synthesis Data to Its Newport Horizon Premium and Newport Vision Premium Solutions

    LONDON and PHILADELPHIA, June 5 /CNW/ -- Thomson Reuters, the world's
leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals,
today announced the addition of Prous Science routes of synthesis (ROS) data
to the Newport Horizon Premium and Newport Vision Premium solutions. An ROS
focused search allows users to identify active pharmaceutical ingredients
(APIs) according to an intermediate or reagent used, number of available
routes or by patents referenced in a given route. Provided free of charge to
current subscribers of the Premium systems, this new dataset, which provides
an exciting compliment to the kilogram demand data released in March, enhances
product targeting, business development and competitive intelligence by
helping users to understand better the chemistry and manufacture of APIs.
    The true or original manufacturing process used for a particular API is
usually well protected by patents, making it challenging to devise equivalent,
cheaper or more efficient processes without infringing on the originator's
intellectual property. The new dataset will help to remedy this by providing
extensive information for more than 2,500 APIs, consisting of:

    -- Full chemical name
    -- CAS number
    -- Synthesis route diagram
    -- Text commentary (with each step indexed to the diagram)
    -- Patent references (linked to the patent page)
    -- Intermediate chemicals and CAS numbers
    -- Reagent chemicals and CAS numbers
    -- Scientific journal references
    "Understanding the 'recipe' of how a particular active ingredient is made
-- or could be made -- is of vital importance to API manufacturers, generic
companies and innovators," said Mike Chace-Ortiz, Senior Director, Product
Strategy, Thomson Reuters. "By providing access to this important data,
Newport Horizon Premium and Newport Vision Premium now allow our customers to
gauge which patents are involved, what raw materials are needed, the cost and
complexity of the process and whether specialized equipment or facilities must
be bought or constructed."
