If a compound is potent, selective, and soluble, but unable to pass through a biological membrane, it may not be able to reach the target of interest and fail to demonstrate the desired efficacy. Orally active drugs must be absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, and drugs that target intracellular system must also pass through the cell membrane in order to reach their intended targets. Extracellular targets, of course, do not face this added issue, but CNS drug candidates face the added complexity of required permeability through the blood–brain barrier (BBB).
