Why are fewer drugs obtaining market approval in recent years? The answer is likely complex, but toxicology issues may be part of the problem. Solidus Biosciences aims to provide pharmaceutical companies with the tools it needs for early stage tox screening. Its MetaChip, short for Metabolizing Enzyme Toxicology Assay chip, is a high through-put biochip capable of screening compounds for their toxicological and metabolic properties in a single test run.

Jenken Biosciences Inc.

At present, there are no approved small molecule anti-inflammatory drugs for treating hepatitis C. Indeed, most drug R&D activity for hepatitis centers on new or improved anti-viral therapy rather than complications of the infection, e.g., the chronic inflammation that occurs in 80% of hepatitis cases. Jenken Biosciences hopes to change that. Jenken is repurposing two different, chemically similar, marketed compounds for new indications associated with chronic organ inflammation.
