Cellumen to Collaborate With the NCTR of the FDA to Apply Cellular Systems Biology (CSB(TM)) to Predictive Toxicology
Date:6/30/2008

PITTSBURGH, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellumen, Inc., the Cellular Systems Biology Company, announced today the initiation of a research collaboration with the National Center for Toxicology Research (NCTR), a research center of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under the agreement, Cellumen will use its proprietary CellCiphr(R) toxicity risk assessment technology to profile blinded samples of known liver toxicity compounds including both failed and marketed drugs for the NCTR. The NCTR will incorporate the knowledge generated by Cellumen to develop a liver toxicity knowledge base. Cellumen will use the profiling data and compound safety data from the collaboration to further develop the diversity in the CellCiphr database and the types of cell panels, as well as to advance the classifier informatics tools.

"Failure to predict human toxicity among drug candidates early in the discovery/development process is a leading challenge for the pharmaceutical industry," stated D. Lansing Taylor, Ph.D., CEO of Cellumen. "Patients demand and deserve safe and effective drugs, while pharmaceutical companies are increasingly challenged to profitably meet that demand. Cellumen's vision is working toward the goal of replacing animal testing with a human in vitro system in order to facilitate the development of safer, more effective drugs," added Dr. Taylor.

By applying CellCiphr toxicity profiling early in the discovery and lead optimization phases, drug companies will accurately identify compounds with high human toxic liabilities. Actions can be taken to either de-prioritize high-risk compounds, or remove high-risk compounds from a lead series that ultimately would prove to be toxic. Cellumen is at the forefront of drug safety profiling services to aid in predicting drug toxicity early in the discovery/development process.
