Priaxon Enters Collaboration With GlaxoSmithKline on Protein-Protein-Interactions
Published: Jan 07, 2013
Protein-protein-interactions (PPIs) are highly attractive targets for a variety of indications and could become successors of kinases as prime targets for a whole era. PPIs pertain to numerous therapeutic fields like cardiovascular and metabolic diseases or oncology. This class of targets has been regarded as undrugable for a long time. Now, successful approaches to address this class together with their high relevance in cellular signaling pathways and regulation make them attractive potential targets for future developments. Chemistry and technology of Priaxon are particularly suited for addressing PPIs.
Priaxon is an emerging pharmaceutical company building a pipeline of novel drug candidates in different therapeutic fields, but mainly focusing on protein-protein interactions in oncology and other diseases. Priaxon uses its unique and proprietary drug discovery technology platform Priaxplore® which employs novel methods of chemical synthesis and computational design to discover and develop new chemical entities as candidates for validated but hard-to-drug targets.
