Rib-X Pharmaceuticals Renews Collaborative Agreement with the Medical Research Council
Date:4/14/2008

NEW HAVEN, Conn. and LONDON, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Rib-X Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Rib-X" or the "Company"), a development-stage company focused on the discovery and development of novel antibiotics for the treatment of antibiotic-resistant infections, and the Laboratory of Molecular Biology of the Medical Research Council (MRC) today announced they have renewed their research collaboration agreement in the area of ribosome and antibiotic structure and function for an additional year. Under the terms of the Agreement, Rib-X and the MRC will continue to jointly explore the high resolution crystal structure of the 70S ribosome.

"Using information discovered about the ribosome during our first year of work with the MRC, Rib-X has been able to advance the iterative intelligent discovery engine that the Company developed to design novel antibiotic scaffolds which circumvent the mechanisms employed by resistant bacteria," said Erin Duffy, Ph.D, Rib-X's Vice President of Structure-Based Drug Design. "This is a natural extension of our relationship with MRC, which will build upon Dr. Venki Ramakrishnan's discovery of the structure of the full 70S ribosome and, in turn, increase our understanding, on an atomic level, of the binding properties of antibiotics to the 50S subunit of the ribosome."
