ROCKVILLE, MD— July 13, 2010 — Ariadne announces that Takeda San Francisco, Takeda’s global
center for excellence for biologics, has signed an agreement to license Ariadne’s Pathway Studio®
software. Takeda plans to utilize the software and underlying text-mining algorithms in their discovery
program against cancer, inflammatory and metabolic diseases.
“We are pleased to add Takeda to our already distinguished list of clients”, says Gabriella Armin, Director
of Marketing for Ariadne. “Our solutions for the pharmaceutical discovery pipeline are proven and we
believe this research can enable the ongoing development of novel product candidates for therapeutic
Ariadne (www.ariadnegenomics.com), a leader in research data products and knowledge enrichment-
based software solutions, helps pharmaceutical and life science researchers tap known scientific
knowledge for applications in systems biology and translational medicine. We provide a portfolio of
solutions for life science, drug discovery and development applications including custom data products,
knowledge extraction and visualization software, knowledge reports, and informatics staffing.
Pathway Studio, built and powered by MedScan® technology, is integrated data mining and visualization
software that allows organizations and researchers to rapidly extract relevant facts and relationships from
large document collections (text-mining), build focused knowledgebases (databases), while supporting the
integration of OMICS experiments. The extracted knowledge is used in an interactive scaffold for defining
and testing in silico-based hypotheses across a wide range of disciplines including mechanistic modeling
of disease, drug action and toxicity, as well as biomarker discovery, cellular and network pathway building,
protein-protein interactions and many more.
Pathway Studio is available in desktop and enterprise versions along with therapeutic-focused
knowledgebases and cartridges. For more information, visit us at www.ariadnegenomics.com.
