Register for this webinar discussing how conventional and innovative integrated technological skills should be incorporated into an oncology program.Read more
Oncodesign is a technical and scientific company whose raison d’être is the innovation that makes it stand out. Our innovation stems intrinsically from our vision, from the way that each individual looks at things. Technological innovation is based on a set of knowledge and technologies which, in combination, answer a new question and create efficiency and therefore growth for customers and partners.
AI is the key technology that will ultimately support our innovation
The Drug Discovery process is how Oncodesign stands out in the preclinical services market
The development of our clinical drug candidates, particularly in oncology, is our ultimate purpose
Oncodesign addresses an ever-growing need for innovation in the healthcare industry. Oncodesign identifies new pathways, establishes strategic connections for therapeutic innovation, and guides its own developments and those of its customers in a patient-centered approach.
Technological innovation is at the heart of the Oncodesign model: the strategic Study, Discovery and Experimentation activities, designed and carried out by Oncodesign, contribute to a better approach to congenital and acquired treatment resistance, to more effective treatments, and to the reduction of treatment failure:
This unique innovation model makes Oncodesign a biopharmaceutical company capable of generating knowledge about patients and their diseases and choosing effective therapeutic solutions, in order to guide its research and that of its customers right from the start by offering services, partnerships and licensing.
For Oncodesign, there is no such thing as a good or bad molecule, since all have their own potential, properties and targets which determine how they are used – there are only molecules whose application must be found.
Oncodesign is investigating new research avenues to discover innovative and effective drugs and biomarkers.
Oncodesign’s Discovery activity meets the needs of characterizing, targeting and configuring molecules. It was based initially on the Nanocyclix® medicinal chemistry module and the expertise of a group of highly experienced medicinal chemists.
The related biomarkers are radiotracers, small and very specific chemical molecules derived from Nanocyclix, labeled with radioactive 18F. This innovative approach makes it possible to detect the target in tumor tissues with the help of a PET scan, and to show that the chosen treatment is specific to this target.
For the past 5 years, Oncodesign has built a new technology platform dedicated to molecular radiotherapy (MRT), which makes it possible to develop theranostics. The targets are mainly membrane-based and address very specific radiolabeled biological vectors (a, b, or g, depending on use).
Oncodesign guides its drug candidate optimization programs with a modern approach to medicinal chemistry, based on rational design, physicochemistry, pharmacokinetics and metabolism.
Oncodesign offers programs to discover new drugs and biomarkers in partnership or under license using the Nanocyclix and MRT technology modules, which include radiotracers, as well as an integrated service offering (DRIVE-SM, DRIVE-MRT, DRIVE-Biologics).
Since 2021, Oncodesign has implemented in-licensing operations within its “Homing” corporate business activity to identify new pre-candidate molecules very early on and integrate them into its Discovery process.
Oncodesign’s Experimentation activity involves preclinical and clinical proofs of concept for new treatments in order to select effective drug candidates. It is built on the following technology modules, which are powerful drivers of innovation:
Oncodesign’s strategic “Etiology” activity consists of identifying and validating new therapeutic targets at the preclinical stage by characterizing sub-populations of patients refractory to cancer treatment!s. As part of this strategic activity, Oncodesign selects new therapeutic targets that become the starting point to effectively guide research and pharmaceutical development. The “Etiology” activity also allows the development of molecular diagnostic and prescription assistance tools for healthcare professionals in order to achieve better patient care. The “Etiology” activity therefore ultimately reduces treatment failure rates.
For the past 10 years, we have made significant investments in the development of the OncoSNIPER technology module, through the IMODI (2013) and OncoSNIPE® (2016) projects.
They enrich Oncodesign’s offering of services and partnerships in the following ways:
