Odyssey Thera Granted U.S. Patent for Novel GPCR Assay Strategy
Date:2/12/2009

Claims extend and strengthen Odyssey Thera's coverage to include GPCR directed screening and drug profiling.

SAN RAMON, Calif., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Odyssey Thera, Inc. announced today that it has been granted a United States patent entitled "Fragment Complementation Assays for G-Protein-Coupled Receptors and their Signaling Pathways." The patent broadly covers methods for screening compounds and for identifying drug leads based on their ability to activate, inhibit or otherwise modulate G-protein-coupled receptors and the diverse signaling pathways linked to these receptors.

"This patent further extends and strengthens our deep patent estate in drug discovery and development technologies," said John K. Westwick, Ph.D., Odyssey Thera CEO and co-author on the patent. "GPCRs are among the most valued targets for drug discovery, and our proprietary technologies enable GPCR-directed drug discovery in a native biological context. The fluorescence-based assays described in this patent are the only available strategy for capturing GPCR activities, including responses of hetero-dimeric GPCR complexes and diverse downstream effector proteins, in living human cells. These powerful new tools are essential in our search for more effective therapies for cancer and other un-met medical needs."

This is the thirteenth patent issued to Odyssey Thera, and solidifies its leadership position in cellular assay and drug discovery technologies. The inventions covered by this patent (U.S. Patent No. 7,488,583) were made by Odyssey Thera scientists.
