Parkinson’s disease: Servier and Oncodesign announce the selection of a preclinical candidate
Initiated in March 2019, this Research and Development partnership is focused on the identification of LRRK2 kinase inhibitors derived from Oncodesign’s proprietary Nanocyclix® platform and their potential to act as therapeutic agents against Parkinson’s disease, drawing on Servier and Oncodesign’s complementary expertise in the field of neurodegenerative disease and kinase inhibitors.

Oncodesign Biotech – Value creation through innovative technology Nanocyclix®
Using its Nanocyclix® technology, Oncodesign identifies small macrocyclic molecules capable of inhibiting both unexplored and intractable kinases in a powerful and targeted manner. The approach is “Probe based” rather than “Target based”, meaning that potent and selective kinase inhibitor “Probes” are directly generated using the macrocyclic chemistry platform. These probes allow to identify accessible kinases using a broad profiling approach and are used for early cellular Proof of Concept of the kinase(s) of interest in specific disease indications.
A large variety of kinase inhibitors are thus explored continuously, and the most promising inhibitor/targeted kinase combinations are selected for more in depth investigations.
Oncodesign has built a project portfolio with strong potential to treat diseases with high unmet medical needs. This portfolio contains both molecules already at an advanced stage of clinical development (a PET tracer for a specific type of lung cancer) and molecules at an earlier stage of development.
Recent successes include strong advancement on LRRK2 inhibitors for Parkinson disease – a notoriously difficult kinase (in partnership with Servier), and the selection of a first in class candidate drug against the novel kinase RIPK2, a promising target in immuno-inflammation and auto-immune diseases. The latter is subject to ongoing partnering discussions and is advancing on its route towards IND in 2021
