WuXi PharmaTech Inks New Three-year Deal with Pfizer

WuXi PharmaTech (NYSE: WX) has signed a new three-year CRO deal with Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) to collaborate on in vitro ADME (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism and Excretion) services. Although WuXi has already been providing the services to Pfizer, WuXi said the new agreement “strengthens an already productive relationship.” WuXi also provides Pfizer with synthetic chemistry, parallel medicinal chemistry (PMC), and bioanalytical services.

In partnership with Pfizer, WuXi PharmaTech will establish ADME assays to provide in vitro screening services on compounds WuXi PharmaTech synthesizes for Pfizer. The goal is to improve the pharmacokinetic properties of new compounds.

The announcement did not disclose financial details of the contract.
