SINGAPORE, April 28, 2022 / -- KYAN Therapeutics, Inc. (KYAN) and Aesculape CRO (Aesculape) announce plans to offer drug development optimization services for Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies.

Studies in recent years estimate that the average cost and time to develop a single new drug is $2.6B and 10 years respectively, and that there is a 97% failure rate for cancer drug development. For various cancer indications, numerous combination therapies have been and are in development as cocktails tend to be more effective than single agent treatments. The inability to quickly and accurately pinpoint what combinations and dosages will work best contributes to high failure rates as well as the length and expense of the drug development process.

Hugo Saavedra, President and CEO of KYAN Therapeutics, says, “This partnership will help bring our technology to companies that are developing therapies to help cancer patients around the world. KYAN’s purpose is to close the cancer care gap. Improving the outcomes and speed of clinical trials are certainly ways that we can fulfil our purpose.”

KYAN’s novel and patented drug combination design and dosage optimization platform can support pre-clinical development to prioritize targets and indications, optimize lead selection, determine optimal drug-combinations for lead assets, and identify biomarkers to aid in development of Companion Diagnostics (CDx) assays. KYAN’s platform can also be used for clinical trial enrichment to identify patient responders and subgroups, and to pinpoint the safest and most effective dosages.
