SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. and DALLAS, Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Velocity Pharmaceutical Development, LLC ("VPD") and Remeditex Ventures, LLC ("Remeditex") announced today the signing of a collaboration agreement.  Under this agreement, VPD and Remeditex will jointly evaluate pharmaceutical development opportunities for management by the VPD development team and potential funding from Velocity Pharmaceutical Holdings, LLC and Remeditex.

About Velocity Pharmaceutical Development, LLC
VPD is a pharmaceutical development organization dedicated to rapidly advancing promising drug candidates to clinical proof of concept using a highly virtual management model.  VPD seeks to acquire promising drug candidates, generally within a year of their entering human clinical trials or after initial human clinical data have been generated.  VPD then manages a highly virtual development program for each drug candidate intended to generate convincing human proof of concept data (generally by conducting a phase 2 clinical trial).  Following successful human proof of concept, VPD then seeks a large pharmaceutical company acquirer for each program.  VPD is staffed by a seasoned team of clinical drug developers with expertise identifying attractive drug candidates, target markets, and designing and managing outsourced clinical trials. This expert team manages multiple single asset companies to remove the costly overhead and misaligned incentives present in traditional biotechnology company structures. VPD operates on a rapid decision principle, which identifies drug candidates with the greatest promise and repurposes capital from those that don't work out early in the process. VPD believes this new capital-efficient model will yield attractive new drugs to treat patients with significant unmet clinical needs. The company is located in South San Francisco, California.  More information is available at www.vpd.net.
