Velcura Therapeutics, Inc. Teams with International Discovery Sourcing Consultants to Develop New Therapeutic Molecules for Cancer and Bone Disease
Date:2/4/2008

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Pfizer's loss of some top talent, including Lipitor pioneer Dr. Bob Sliskovic, is the gain of two Michigan companies teaming to help speed research to fight bone diseases such as multiple myeloma, metastatic bone disease, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.

Velcura Therapeutics President and CEO Michael W. Long, PhD, announced his biotechnology company will work with Dr. Sliskovic and International Discovery Sourcing Consultants, LLC (IDSC), on the design and sourcing of medicinal chemistry data for its second generation and new bone therapy molecules. "IDSC brings added drug discovery leadership, experienced vendors and project managers as we begin our clinical trial this year for VEL-0230, a new drug that stimulates bone formation and inhibits bone loss," said Long.

"We offer in-depth support for scientific programs and also welcome a long-term partnership with firms like Velcura that are outsourcing," said IDSC President and CEO Mark Creswell. "The pharmaceutical industry experts joining us from Pfizer have 17-30 years of experience; we have chaired multiple projects that moved drug candidates into the clinic," he added. "Bob Sliskovic, for example, was responsible for the development of some 30 clinical candidates, including Lipitor."

Dr. Sliskovic, who was featured in the Dec. 11, 2007 Wall Street Journal, now dreams of being involved in another blockbuster like Lipitor. The work that he is doing now with IDSC could help Velcura to develop a treatment to help millions of individuals suffering from bone diseases like Osteoporosis, which is second to heart disease as a world health problem.
