WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--X-Chem, Inc., a privately held biotechnology company focused on applying its innovative drug discovery capabilities to the generation of novel small molecule therapeutics, today announced it has achieved a success milestone with Bayer Pharma AG in the multi-target collaboration the companies established in July 2012. Bayer is licensing an early-stage drug discovery program directed against an epigenetic drug target. Inhibiting epigenetic targets is widely recognized as a promising emerging therapeutic option for cancer and other diseases; however, identifying small molecule inhibitors for these targets is technologically challenging. Fueled by a proprietary library comprised of 100 billion small molecules, X-Chem’s product engine has proven highly effective for discovering novel and selective inhibitors to multiple classes of targets, including those that have historically been difficult to address.
