Physiomics plc (AIM: PYC), the oncology consultancy using mathematical models to support the development of cancer treatment regimens and personalised medicine solutions, is pleased to announce that it has signed new agreements with existing client, Merck KGaA (“Merck”), with an aggregate value of £300,000. These projects are expected to be completed over the course of the next six months and will span a range of drug targets and treatment types in both pre-clinical and clinical settings with a particular focus on DNA damage and repair (“DDR”) agents.
As has been the case in 2021, the board of Physiomics (the “Board”) expects further contracts to be signed with Merck over the course of 2022.
Dr Jim Millen, CEO of Physiomics, said: “We’re delighted that we continue to have a strong relationship with Merck and that our predictive modelling capabilities are, we believe, proving highly useful in the design of a number of their key clinical programs. In our view, there is no other company with Physiomics’ experience in the field of DDR modelling and with every new project we further develop our capabilities in this field. These contracts provide a great platform for our work with Merck in 2022 and we expect further projects to be signed over the course of the full year.”
