12/18/2020 - In a collaboration with Truvitech, scientists at UC San Diego, University of California, Davis, University of Miami, Wilmer Eye Institute At Johns Hopkins, Stanford University, and University of California, San Francisco deployed Truvitech's idTRAX technology to identify the first group of kinase targets that provide long-term neuroprotection of retinal ganglion neurons while simultaneously promoting axon regeneration in those neurons. This discovery, just published in PNAS, will have significant implications for the treatment of chronic neurodegenerative diseases such as glaucoma.
09/18/2019 - Co-founder Vance Lemmon's presentation on the latest successes of the idTRAX platform was well received by the audience at the Society for Biomolecular Imaging and Informatics (SBI2) meeting in Boston.
08/11/2019 - Truvitech successfully validated its novel DLBCL drug target candidate using both genetic and chemical approaches in vitro. Work is being done now to validate this target in four different in vivo models of DLBCL representing ABC (naive/treated) and GCB (naive/treated) subtypes.
05/02/2019 - Breast cancer study utilizing idTRAX was published in Cell Chemical Biology.
04/01/2019 - Truvitech successfully completed studies proposed in its Phase I STTR. Work is now being done to validate a novel target that was discovered for DLBCL. Small-molecules that engage this target selectively kill DLBCL tumor cells without affecting the viability of normal blood cells, making it an ideal target candidate for drug development.
03/05/2019 - Co-founder Hassan Al-Ali's presentation "Re-thinking drug target identification" was well received by the audience at the Phenotypic Drug Discovery: Recent Advances and Insights from Chemical and Systems Biology (C1) Keystone Symposium.
12/01/2018 - Truvitech completed a screening campaign with 10 DLBCL cancer lines and peripheral blood mononuclear cells and deployed idTRAX to identify a novel kinase target that selectively sensitizes DLBCL cells without affecting the viability of normal cells.
08/01/2018 - Truvitech's idTRAX approach successfully identifies anti-viral drug targets.
