Domainex and Ark Therapeutics Extend Drug Discovery Agreement
News Jul 09, 2009
Domainex Ltd has announced an extension of its research agreement with Ark Therapeutics Group Ltd (Ark). Under the terms of the agreement Domainex will continue to provide Ark with hit-finding and lead optimization services for drug discovery against novel and exciting therapeutic targets nominated by the company.
Domainex and Ark have been working closely together for several years, successfully combining Domainex’s capabilities in drug design and lead optimization with Ark’s disease and molecular biology expertise.
Domainex’s experienced research team specialize in the provision of medicinal chemistry, computer-aided drug design, biochemistry, and molecular biology services which are tailored to the specific needs of biotechnology companies and academic research groups. The company is also developing its own pipeline of pre-clinical drugs and targets.
Dr Trevor Perrior, Research Director of Domainex, commented: “Domainex is delighted that Ark has decided to extend our productive relationship. The synergy and teamwork between our respective scientists have been outstanding, and this collaboration has already resulted in the achievement of key breakthroughs against very challenging scientific goals.”
Dr. Perrior continued, “We look forward to taking these programmes to the next stage of their development, with the aim of delivering important new treatments for major life-threatening diseases. The renewal of this contract is a further illustration of the value that clients such as Ark place on the contribution that Domainex is able to bring to their drug research programmes.”

Algorithm Predicts Life Expectancy After Heart AttackNews
A new algorithm developed by UCLA researchers more accurately predicts which people will survive heart failure, and for how long, whether or not they receive a heart transplant. The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.
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.
