We are pleased to announce a new collaboration with Lhasa Limited that will integrate the Derek Nexus™ platform for knowledge-based prediction of compound toxicity as an optional plug-in module for StarDrop.

Toxicity of drug candidates is a major cause of expensive, late-stage failure in pre-clinical and clinical development. Lhasa’s Derek Nexus technology uses data from published and donated (unpublished) sources to identify structure-toxicity relationships and alert scientists to the potential for compounds to cause toxicity.

The region of a compound triggering an alert will be highlighted using StarDrop’s Glowing Molecule™ visualisation, helping to guide the redesign of compounds to avoid the potential toxic liability. This will facilitate collaboration between chemists and expert toxicologists to interpret and understand the relevance of a potential liability, enabling effective, early decision-making regarding the prioritisation of chemistries early in the drug discovery process.

The results of this collaboration will be available in a future version of StarDrop, expected to be released during 2013.

For more details, see the full press release.
