Launch of a compound sharing library business aimed at promoting drug discovery
CAC Croit Corporation, which engages in the CRO business, launched a compound sharing library business in March 2018. The compound sharing library business is a service that involves consolidating the compounds and data for pharmaceutical frontier research, which are owned and stored individually by pharmaceutical companies, on facilities and platforms constructed and provided by CAC Croit, and promoting their use as shared libraries. This business is expected to lead to a significant reduction in the time and costs consumed for new drug development and create innovations, including the promotion of drug discovery by Japanese companies. It was therefore selected for Cyclic Innovation for Clinical Empowerment (CiCLE), which is part of the Economic Measures for Realizing Investment for the Future by the national government.
