Ambit to Profile Additional Compounds for Bristol-Myers, GSK, Pfizer

NEW YORK, Jan. 17 (GenomeWeb News) - Ambit Biosciences will profile additional compounds for Bristol-Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline, and Pfizer using its kinase and screening technologies, the San Diego-based company said today.

 

Ambit will use its kinase platform to profile the specificity of certain compounds from GSK and Bristol-Myers. The platform consists of more than 170 quantitative, high-throughput kinase assays.

 

The company will also try to identify and characterize the protein targets of certain Pfizer compounds using its reverse screening technology that covers a large fraction of all human proteins.

 

Ambit has had previous collaborations with all three drug makers.
