NuMedii, Inc. Announces New Indications Discovery Collaboration With Astellas

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NuMedii, Inc. today announced the formation of a discovery collaboration with Astellas Pharma Inc. ("Astellas") to identify new indications for a number of undisclosed Astellas compounds using NuMedii's predictive Big Data intelligence technology.

"NuMedii's predictive Big Data intelligence technology enables the discovery of new uses for both marketed drugs and shelved development assets across a number of therapeutic areas," stated Asim Siddiqui, Ph.D., chief technology officer, NuMedii, Inc. "We are excited to partner with Astellas to explore new indications for a number of their assets which we hope will be of benefit to patients in need and the physicians who treat them."

This is NuMedii's second collaboration with a large pharmaceutical company in recent months. In September 2015, the Company announced a partnership with Allergan for discovery of new treatments for psoriasis.

The Company's proprietary and dynamic Big Data intelligence technology consists of hundreds of millions of human, biological, pharmacological and clinical data points that NuMedii has normalized and annotated. NuMedii integrates these data with proprietary network-based algorithms to find both drug candidates and biomarkers predictive of efficacy for diseases. In 2013, NuMedii entered into a strategic technology partnership with the Intellectual Property and Life Science business of Thomson Reuters, creating an unprecedented repository of methodologies and content to systematically identify new applications for existing drug compounds. NuMedii is initially using its Big Data technology to discover and de-risk new indications for medicines.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
