Affectis Pharmaceuticals AG Announces Target Validation Collaboration with Mitsubishi Pharma

Munich, Germany, -- Affectis Pharmaceuticals AG announced today that it has signed a collaboration agreement with Mitsubishi Pharma Corporation for the development of novel therapeutics for the treatment of affective disorders. Under the terms of the agreement, Affectis will apply its pioneering target validation technology and its exclusive animal models for the validation of Mitsubishi Pharma’s gene targets involved in depression and anxiety.

Today, one of the major challenges in developing optimised drugs against affective disorders is the limited availability of suitable animal models and sufficient expertise in selecting promising targets and leads as well as their preclinical development. Affectis´ team has more than 10 years experience in developing, performing and interpreting behavioural assays and animal models of diseases such as depression and anxiety.

“We are very glad to bring our unique expertise into the partnership with Mitsubishi Pharma, one of the leading players of the global pharmaceutical industry,” Dr Herbert Stadler, Chief Executive Officer of Affectis Pharmaceuticals AG, comments. “Since the foundation of Affectis in late 2002, we have attracted several internationally renowned partners and continuously strengthened our position as a leading research and development organisation in the field of affective disorders.”

Dr Nakajima, Executive Officer/General Manager of the Pharmaceutical Research Unit for Mitsubishi Pharma commented: “By choosing Affectis Pharmaceuticals as solutions provider for the validation of drug targets, we are ideally positioned to speed up the development of our target pipeline and potentially provide new treatment options for affective disorders.”
