Clinical Data Acquires Epidauros Biotechnologie AG, Significantly Enhancing Proprietary Genetic Biomarker Portfolio
Date:8/23/2007

d our expertise and intellectual property will greatly enhance the collective ability of the companies to develop companion diagnostics to guide drug development and prescribing."

"This acquisition parallels what has been happening in the pharmaceutical industry for many years and should be regarded as being highly positive," said Professor Munir Pirmohamed, Professor of Clinical Pharmacology at The University of Liverpool. "It combines the forces of two well-known companies in this field and provides the infrastructure and expertise to improve the evidence base that is needed to incorporate pharmacogenetic diagnostics into clinical practice. I collaborate with both companies as academic-industrial collaborations are important in keeping with the research strategies of most governments and are ultimately needed to show the clinical validity and utility of pharmacogenetics for the management of expensive and complex disease areas. Hence, genes for drug transporters, such as MDR1 and OCT1 will prove to be as important as the Cytochrome P450 system in determining plasma and tissue levels of drugs, and thereby the efficacy and toxicity of drugs in disease areas including but not limited to oncology, cardiology, CNS, metabolic, and inflammatory diseases and pain."
