FDA Signs Contract with Entelos to Predict Cardiovascular Adverse Events
News Dec 18, 2008
Entelos, Inc. has announced that it has entered into an agreement with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to use the Entelos® Cardiovascular PhysioLab® to assess the cardiovascular safety and efficacy of a specific drug class and a set of drugs within that class. The compound class and specific set of drugs were not disclosed.
The Company’s Cardiovascular PhysioLab platform is a comprehensive large-scale computer simulation of cholesterol regulation, atherogenesis, and cardiovascular risk. It has been used by Entelos for multiple pharmaceutical customers to simulate and predict the effects of drugs in patients and patient populations, evaluate novel drug targets, test combination therapies, identify and interpret biomarker patterns, and predict a drug’s long-term biological effects.
A broad range of "virtual patients" will be generated using Entelos’ cardiovascular platform and used for simulations to test the cardiovascular safety and efficacy of multiple drugs.
Results will be compared to existing clinical trial data collected by the FDA from multiple drug sponsors. Insights will help to inform the FDA on key decisions concerning the effects of novel drugs on cardiovascular disease processes.

Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
Fructose Formula Poses Risk to Babies With Metabolic DisorderNews
Babies with inherited intolerance of fructose face a risk of acute liver failure if they are fed certain widely available formulas containing fructose, pediatricians and geneticists are warning. Baby formula manufacturers should remove fructose or sucrose, or explicitly label their products to allow parents to avoid those sweeteners if necessary, the doctors say.
