Addex highlights strength of allosteric modulation technology platform
Date:11/12/2010

Geneva, Switzerland, 12 November 2010 Allosteric modulation company Addex Pharmaceuticals (SIX:ADXN) announced today that data on a total of nine therapeutic programs will be presented during Society for Neuroscience 2010 (November 13-17, San Diego, USA), highlighting the strength of its allosteric modulation technology platform. The data being presented cover multiple receptor types and therapeutic areas, including Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, anxiety, Alzheimer's disease and depression.

"The data generated by Addex and our partners, Ortho-McNeil-Janssen and Merck & Co., being presented at the Society for Neuroscience 2010 conference illustrate the power of our allosteric modulation product generating engine. Although the targets we are addressing have been pursued for many years with standard discovery technologies, most have proven elusive," explained Dr. Vincent Mutel, CEO of Addex. "Our technology is allowing us to bring a new kind of chemistry to industrial drug discovery efforts and thereby improve discovery productivity, a key bottleneck hindering the pharmaceutical industry. Beyond our presentations at Society for Neuroscience this year, we have recently demonstrated our ability to expand our discovery technology beyond GPCRs, like glutamate receptors, to cover other types of cell surface receptors, such as cytokine receptors, including TNF receptors. In addition to advancing our own molecules, we will look to sign multiple collaborative partnerships to realize the potential of our platform."

Small molecule allosteric modulators represent an unexploited kind of chemistry which is different from the traditional small molecule drugs. Orally available allosteric modulators can offer multiple competitive advantages over classical drugs. Most importantly, they can be more specific for their target receptor in the body, while at the same time, offering more precise control over receptor function. They can do this because they bind to cell surface receptors at a different site than traditional drugs. Although allosteric binding sites offer greater control, molecules that bind them cannot be identified using conventional high throughput screening techniques.
