Sygnature Chemical Services and Cyprotex Establish Strategic Alliance
News Dec 10, 2009
Sygnature Chemical Services Ltd. and Cyprotex Discovery Ltd. announced they have entered into a strategic alliance. Under the terms of the agreement, Sygnature and Cyprotex will collaborate to provide a fully-integrated discovery chemistry/DMPK service to accelerate their clients’ drug discovery projects into development.
Dr Anthony Baxter, Chief Executive Offer at Cyprotex said, "We are pleased to have formed a strategic alliance with Sygnature. Over the past 5 years, they have established a reputation for high-quality medicinal chemistry, and for the intellectual input they contribute into projects. Cyprotex is known as a centre of excellence for ADME/PK services and we are the first choice CRO for many biotech and big pharma companies.
Sygnature is a centre of excellence for medicinal chemistry and has an impressive track record. By working closely together with our customers, who will be experts in their particular therapeutic project field, we are confident that we can accelerate projects forward more effectively than CROs that offer a one-stop-shop approach. My colleagues and I are looking forward to working with the Sygnature team to offer an outstanding fully-integrated discovery chemistry/ADME/DMPK service.”
3-D Tissue Model of Developing Heart Could Aid Drug Safety Testing for Pregnant WomenNews
The heart is the first organ to develop in the womb and the first cause of concern for many parents. Parents and doctors often have to consider the mother's health as well as the potential risk regarding how medication could affect their baby."We can try to rebuild the shape of the early development heart in the lab," said Professor Zhen Ma. "It mimics the very early stage, during the embryo genesis - how the heart was formed."READ MORE
New Chemical Synthesis Process: Synergy of Two Catalysts in One FlaskNews
Researchers report the one-step synthesis of a ketone from an aldehyde by the combination of thiazolium N-heterocyclic carbene and palladium/bisphosphine catalysts in one flask. The two catalysts function in a synergistic manner. This study is expected to lead to new synthesis processes of precursor compounds for medications.READ MORE
'Body-on-a-Chip' Could Advance Drug EvaluationNews
MIT engineers have developed new technology that could be used to evaluate new drugs and detect possible side effects before the drugs are tested in humans. Using a microfluidic platform that connects engineered tissues from up to 10 organs, the researchers can accurately replicate human organ interactions for weeks at a time.READ MORE
