Heptares Achieves All Research Milestones and Receives Milestone Payment From GPCR Drug Discovery Agreement With Takeda
Date:4/29/2013

WELWYN GARDEN CITY, England and BOSTON, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Heptares Therapeutics, the leading GPCR drug discovery and development company, announces it has achieved all milestones in its collaboration with Takeda Pharmaceutical Company. By achieving these milestones, Heptares will receive a significant payment from Takeda, under the terms of the agreement signed by the two companies in 2011.

The agreement is focused on a single GPCR target nominated by Takeda that, until now, has proved intractable to rational drug discovery efforts due to its instability when removed from the cell membranes and the resulting lack of insight into its structure. Over the course of the collaboration Heptares has leveraged its structure-based drug design (SBDD) approach to GPCRs and proprietary technologies to generate the first-ever stabilised form of the target in a clinically relevant conformation enabling a series of novel lead candidates against the target to be designed.

Tetsuyuki Maruyama , General Manager Pharmaceutical Research Division, Takeda said: "We are impressed with the efficiency and results from this partnership with Heptares. In achieving these milestones, the Heptares team has demonstrated its ability to design new, high-quality small molecules to a previously challenging GPCR target. We look forward to continuing our partnership and taking these leads forward into pre-clinical development."

"Our partnership with Takeda provides an excellent validation of our GPCR-focused structure-based drug design approach and capabilities," said Malcolm Weir , CEO of Heptares. "We see similar good progress in our other partnerships where to date we have hit every milestone. This success, in turn, provides us with an important source of capital, which has enabled us to build an impressive proprietary pi
