Takeda is now signed on until the end of 2006 and purchased a perpetual license to the data content as of the expiration date of the latest agreement. Daiichi signed up for several more years and will use the system primarily for drug discovery research, with an option to expand to other areas.

 

Financial terms of the agreements were not disclosed.
