International deal to screen potential cancer drugs using DNA 'barcodes'
Date:1/21/2014

their cancer biology and molecular pharmacology expertise to validate prototype drug molecules identified by the Chemetics screening.

The parties have an option to co-develop promising compounds arising from this collaboration. The agreement is open-ended and allows for the screening of additional targets if the collaboration is successful.

Professor Paul Workman, Deputy Chief Executive of The Institute of Cancer Research, London, and Director of the Cancer Research UK Cancer Therapeutics Unit said: "The stress response pathway plays a key role in allowing cancer cells to survive and to develop drug resistance so it is increasingly being seen as an exciting source of future drug targets. But for some of these targets it is technically very challenging to identify prototype small molecule drugs. The new collaboration between the ICR, Cancer Research Technology and Nuevolution will allow us to screen very rapidly and efficiently for compounds that are able to bind to a key component of the stress response pathway that we have identified as especially important, and could help us to identify new drug candidates far more quickly than would otherwise be the case. By working in partnership we can accelerate the potential for patient benefit."

Dr Phil L'Huillier, Cancer Research Technology's director of business management, said: "Our role is to build global industry-academic partnerships to bring the best technologies and expertise together to develop new treatments for cancer patients ultimately saving more lives from the disease. This exciting international collaboration combines global expertise and resources to exploit the untapped biology of the stress response pathway.

"This work will accelerate the identification of potential new cancer drugs though an innovative approach to scan for DNA 'barcode' tags on promising new molecules extending the existing relationship between Nuevolution and CRT."
