Rib-X Pharmaceuticals Expands License Agreement with Yale University on New Ribosome Technology
Date:12/8/2009

covered by Rib-X using its structure-based drug design approach, is an oral/IV agent for the treatment of serious multi-drug-resistant infections. The Company also has two other structure-based discovery programs, Rx-04 and Rx-02. The Rx-04 discovery program is developing novel classes of antibiotics active against multi-drug resistant Gram-negative bacteria. The Rx-02 discovery program is focused on developing an IV/oral macrolide active against MRSA, multidrug-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae, and S. pyogenes. Rib-X's underlying drug discovery engine capitalizes on its proprietary high-resolution crystal structure of the ribosome, which performs an essential role in protein synthesis. Many known, commercially valuable antibiotics exert their effects by binding to the bacterial ribosome. The Company's integrated research strategy, which combines state-of-the-art, proprietary computational analysis, X-ray crystallography, medicinal chemistry, microbiology and biochemistry, allows it to rapidly synthesize new agents designed to avoid typical antibiotic resistance mechanisms.
