Odyssey Thera to Participate in Expanded EPA Initiative
Date:12/6/2010

SAN RAMON, Calif., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced today a new phase of toxicity screening, in which 1,000 chemicals will be screened as part of EPA's ToxCast initiative. Odyssey Thera's participation in this program, first announced earlier this year, involves the application of extensive and diverse proprietary assay and screening technologies. "The Odyssey team is very pleased with our contributions to ToxCast to date, and we're excited to see this program accelerating," said Dr. Jane E. Lamerdin, Executive Director of R&D at Odyssey Thera, "ToxCast represents an ideal application of our validated chemical analysis strategies."

The chemicals will be assessed for potential toxicity to people and the environment. ToxCast is designed to determine how chemical exposures impact human biological processes and how the chemicals most likely lead to health effects. When fully implemented, ToxCast will be able to screen thousands of chemicals in fast, cost-effective tests that are relevant to human health. The chemicals being tested are found in industrial and consumer products, food additives and drugs that never made it to the market.
