Joint Project to Develop a Revolutionary Drug Discovery Product.

23.08.2004


InterBioScreen (IBS), global provider of unique chemical compound libraries, and Quantum Pharmaceuticals, high-tech drug discovery company, announced a new project to create a revolutionary product for the drug discovery market.

The joint project, QuantumLead, combines the industry leading in silico lead optimization technology of Quantum Pharmaceuticals with the unique synthetic and natural compound libraries and network of scientists of IBS to create Q-Lead-Libraries.

Q-Lead-Libraries are libraries of compounds, which are ranked according to their constant affinity to particular protein targets. They are designed to allow biotech and pharmaceutical companies to achieve a dramatic acceleration of the drug discovery R&D process by reducing or eliminating the time involved in screening and optimization of hits and leads. Using Q-Lead Libraries will enable biotech and pharmaceuticals companies to find exclusive novel drug candidates more quickly and at a lower cost.



The technology behind Q-Lead-Libraries™ is Quantum Pharmaceuticals’ proprietary intermolecular modeling tools and accurate affinity calculations. The technology provides for full flexibility of both ligands and proteins and takes into account all factors of binding free energy including solvation effects, Van Der Waals energy in solution, as well as electrostatic and entropy contribution.

The joint in-house drug development program is expected to produce a broad range of novel drug candidates for HIV-1 integrase (AIDS), hsp90 (oncology) and beta-secretase (Alzheimer’s Disease) that will be marketed and out-licensed by both companies at the preclinical stage.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
