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.

The use of immunotherapies in oncology has drastically changed the way of treating cancer, providing innovative and efficient therapeutic solutions. Currently, tremendous R&D efforts are done in immuno-oncology to discover new targets and develop new drugs. In that context, the use of relevant and robust assays to predict therapeutic efficiencies has become a key for drug discovery programs. Oncodesign develops a broad range of solutions to support your drug discovery projects in immuno-oncology. We can provide solutions on a stand alone basis or through an integrated drug discovery package – from hit identification to candidate selection. Based on human immune material for in vitro/ex vivo phenotypic assays and on advanced preclinical models – syngeneic or humanized – for in vivo assays, our scientists help you to assess your compound efficiency in routine or customized assays.
