Plexxikon is a leader in the discovery and development of novel small molecule pharmaceuticals to treat human disease. Since operations commenced June 2001, Plexxikon has applied its proprietary platform technology to identify and build a portfolio of product opportunities for therapeutic indications in metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease, inflammation and oncology.

Current Plexxikon programs address disease targets that are already validated in humans, have clear clinical development paths for significant unmet markets, and demonstrate Plexxikon's capability to address side effects and/or enhance the therapeutic profile of current drug treatments.

Plexxikon's discovery process utilizes a number of technologies, including Plexxikon's Scaffold-Based Drug Discovery&trade platform. This discovery platform involves structural screening and analysis as one key component providing a significant competitive advantage to other drug discovery approaches. Structural screening is applied at the earliest point in lead finding to address current challenges in pharmaceutical drug discovery today - by enabling the mining of novel chemical space, applying a unique quality filter, and by providing a roadmap for lead discovery and development chemistry.
