About cHTS(TM)

To discover combinations of molecules that exhibit novel patterns of activity against disease networks, CombinatoRx, Incorporated uses its combination High Throughput Screening (cHTS(TM)) drug discovery platform. Using this proprietary platform, the company systematically searches millions of combinations across a large portfolio of phenotypic disease models, identifying patterns of activity against both known and novel targets in a broad range of disease areas. Each combination is evaluated to quantify and visualize its activity at a range of dose ratios. Combinations with synergistic therapeutic effects against disease phenotypes are flagged automatically using a custom-designed informatics backbone, then profiled to further determine their mechanism of action and product suitability. Innovations in computational biology techniques and software design automate the CombinatoRx process, enabling the company to search large numbers of combinations and rapidly select candidates with desirable patterns of activity.
