Published: Nov 16, 2011

TARRYTOWN, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PsychoGenics Inc. today announced the achievement of a milestone in its drug discovery and development collaboration with Roche.

In May 2008, PsychoGenics and Roche entered into a drug discovery and development agreement to combine their complementary strengths and expertise to identify a new generation of treatments for neuropsychiatric disorders. PsychoGenics evaluated a library of Roche compounds, using its proprietary in vivo drug discovery technologies, leading to the discovery of a new drug candidate with the potential for a novel mode of action. Roche has decided to exercise its option to develop this drug candidate, thereby triggering a milestone payment to PsychoGenics.
