OGI invests in drug discovery at InDanio Bioscience

new therapeutic avenues into the NR family."

InDanio's zebrafish ligand trap (LT) technology and LT drug discovery platform will take advantage of the fact that zebrafish are transparent in early stages of development, thus allowing for the use of fluorescent protein markers. Many drugs never reach the marketplace because they fail toxicology tests or have other unintended effects on the body. Currently, in vitro testing relies on measuring simple chemical interactions to gauge a drug's effectiveness, but this is often not an effective predictor of how drugs will affect living organisms. By beginning the screening process with in vivo assays using live zebrafish, more information on a drug's effectiveness, toxicology and other side-effects can be gathered in advance of and to better inform downstream clinical trials.

"InDanio is in an excellent position to capitalize on the significant work undertaken by the academic and pharma sectors over the past 20 years in characterizing NR proteins and developing compound libraries targeting these proteins," commented Dr. Christian Burks, President and CEO of OGI. "Their screening system should provide novel, productive information on natural ligands, tissue and developmental specificity of natural or xenobiotic compounds, and whether or not a compound binds multiple receptors."
