Symyx Launches Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization for Biopharmaceuticals
News Apr 23, 2009
Symyx Technologies, Inc. has announced the launch of the Symyx Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO). The Symyx CDMO helps biopharmaceutical companies move promising drug candidates to clinical trials faster and reliably with integrated formulation development, and preclinical and CGMP fill/finish manufacturing.
"After discovery, the next critical milestone in drug development is getting to clinical trials quickly with a reliable formulation. The Symyx CDMO provides clients a faster, more reliable route to clinical trials," said Richard Boehner, president of Symyx High Productivity Research (HPR). “We do this by combining unsurpassed formulation expertise, high-productivity research technology and CGMP clinical manufacturing in a single facility."
With expertise in preformulation development, formulation optimization and stability, and analytical method development, the Symyx CDMO enables development of highly optimized and robust drug formulations, so that clinical trials test the efficacy of drug candidates, not the limitations of the formulation.
In addition, the Symyx CDMO offers full service fill/finish execution for delivering drug products manufactured under CGMP conditions while maintaining the integrity of drug substances and meeting preclinical and Phase I and II clinical trial schedules.
Scientists working in a range of disciplines joined forces to identify a new approach to combat African sleeping sickness. Their research revealed a promising strategy to develop a suitable agent. This novel concept could also be employed in the future rational design of drugs for the treatment of other diseases.READ MORE
Researchers warn that--as the predictive power of genes tied to learning and educational outcomes increases and access to genetic data expands--researchers, educators, and policymakers must be cautious in how they use such data, interpret related findings, and, in the not-too-distant future, apply genetics-informed student interventions.READ MORE
