Excerpt from the Press Release:
RINCETON, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The McQuade Center for Strategic Research and Development, LLC (MSRD), a member of the global Otsuka family of pharmaceutical companies, announces today that it has entered an agreement with Sentinel Oncology (Sentinel), a drug discovery company.
The McQuade Center for Strategic Research and Development at Otsuka in the U.S. will support the clinical development of a first-in-class therapeutic with the potential to treat Fragile X syndrome (FXS), a rare, genetic condition that causes intellectual disability, behavioral and learning challenges, and various physical characteristics1.
Under the terms of the agreement, MSRD and Sentinel will collaborate to support the Phase 1a and Phase 1b clinical trials for Sentinel’s investigational compound SOL784 with the opportunity to expand the collaboration after those studies.
“Although there are treatment options for the symptoms of Fragile X syndrome available today, none have been approved by regulatory authorities to address the underlying cause of this rare genetic disorder,” said Robert McQuade, PhD, president, McQuade Center for Strategic Research and Development, LLC, and chief strategic officer, Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc. “Our two organizations share like-minded missions of delivering treatments to patients with unmet medical needs. We are hopeful that our collaboration can lead to the development of a potential therapeutic for people living with this condition.”
