XtalPi and Signet Expand AI Drug Discovery Collaboration to Novel Cancer Target

Excerpt from the Press Release:

SHENZHEN, China and BOSTON, Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Signet Therapeutics and XtalPi Inc., a physics-based, AI-powered drug R&D company, announced the expansion of their AI drug discovery collaboration to include a new first-in-class program against a novel cancer target identified by Signet. The two companies entered into a strategic collaboration in 2020 and successfully identified pre-clinical candidates for a new gastric cancer target in approximately six months. The follow-on project will continue to combine XtalPi’s AI drug discovery platform with Signet’s unique novel organoid disease models to generate pipeline candidates for Signet and advance them toward clinical trials.

A significant challenge to developing new therapeutics is the ability to expand the search beyond known structures and accurately screen through a copious supply of novel molecules to identify top candidates with a desirable drug property profile indicative of development potential. Pharmacodynamics is a key factor in lead optimization and drug design. However, traditional cell-based in vitro studies have considerable limitations in modeling drug effects in the human body and often produce unreliable efficacy data that can lead to clinical failure.
