We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with our scientific colleagues and friends at C4XD.” Clive Dix, CEO of C4X Discovery, added: “We are delighted to expand on our successful relationship with Evotec through this alliance that is designed to support us in achieving our vision of becoming the world’s most productive drug discovery engine. This new long-term agreement is a step change from our previous collaboration as now the risk of small molecule development will be shared as we progress candidates towards the clinic. We have already identified the first three small molecule targets and the combination of our unique technologies and the infrastructure and expertise that Evotec has in place will enable us to accelerate the development of novel small molecule drug candidates.” ABOUT C4X DISCOVERY C4X Discovery aims to become the world’s most productive drug discovery engine by exploiting cutting edge technologies to design and create best-in-class small-molecule candidates targeting a range of high value therapeutic areas. Since the Company’s successful AIM IPO in October 2014, C4X Discovery has made considerable progress across its in-house pipeline in addiction, diabetes and inflammation with a number of new drug candidates identified and further progress made towards the clinic. explanationfoot pain 3 weeksC4X Discovery now has five therapeutic projects underway. The Company has two proprietary and synergistic software platforms, “Taxonomy3(R)” and “Conformetrix”, that provide a significant competitive advantage when combined with an experienced management team. “Taxonomy3(R)” is a human genetics analysis platform that utilises a unique mathematical approach to discovery and validation of drug targets for the treatment of a variety of diseases. “Conformetrix” determines the 3D shape of drug molecules from experimental in vitro data giving medicinal chemists new and unprecedented insights into the behaviour and physical properties of drug molecules. This enables the rapid design and discovery of better and safer drugs for diseases with high unmet medical need across broad therapeutic areas. C4X Discovery’s drug discovery engine was further strengthened by the acquisition of technologies from Molplex Ltd, in 2016, which included a software-based system which combines chemoinformatics, computational chemistry and artificial intelligence to optimise the drug discovery process.
