Odyssey Thera Signs Cell-Based Assay Services Agreement with Lexicon Genetics

NEW YORK, June 20 (GenomeWeb News) - Odyssey Thera has signed a services agreement with Lexicon Genetics under which it will characterize the pathway activity of certain Lexicon compounds in human cells.

 

Odyssey Thera said it will apply its protein-fragment complementation assay (PCA) technology to study the on-pathway and off-pathway activities of compounds in living human cells.

 

The company said that it uses a database of known drugs and toxic compounds in order to compare the activity of novel compounds with the activities of marketed and withdrawn agents and toxicants.

 

Financial terms of the agreement with Lexicon were not provided.
