Shanghai ChemPartner and ELARA Pharmaceuticals Expand Drug Discovery Collaboration to a New Level
Date:8/4/2009

SHANGHAI, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Shanghai ChemPartner Co., Ltd., (ChemPartner) a wholly owned subsidiary of ShangPharma Corporation, announced today that it has moved its drug discovery collaboration with ELARA Pharmaceuticals to a new level. ChemPartner will provide fully integrated services in the areas of DMPK, pharmacology and toxicology for ELARA's lead oncology programs. Members of the joint project team from both sides will work closely together to design and execute a drug screening cascade.

"This new relationship is a natural result of the high quality services provided by ChemPartner," commented Dr. Joe Lewis, CEO and a founder of ELARA Pharmaceuticals. "The discovery support from ChemPartner helped our Hypoxia Signaling inhibitor program to move from academic discovery stage to early proof of concept. This led to a successful spin off from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany. Our new integrated relationship will enable ELARA to further leverage ChemPartner's strong R&D capabilities from discovery to early development phase. We anticipate a stronger strategic partnership down the road as our program progresses."

"We are very pleased to see that our services helped ELARA turn innovative research at a renowned academic institution into a venture funded drug discovery company," said Michael Hui, founder and CEO of ChemPartner. "Our partnership demonstrates the strength of ChemPartner's innovation driven and fully integrated R&D service platform"
