  • Integrated Preclinical Services
    We can further proceed the R&D of the potential PROTAC molecule by facilitating our integrated preclinical services including CMC services, DMPK studies, safety evaluation, etc.
    The pharmacokinetics (PK) data show that five highly potent androgen receptor (AR) degraders achieve good to excellent overall PK profiles with ARD-2128 being the best compound. ARD-2128 has low clearance (1.2 mL/min/kg) and a moderate to high steady-state volume of distribution (Vss) of 2.7 L/kg. ARD-2128 (2 mg/kg, i.v.) and ARD-2128 (5 mg/kg, p.o.) both have long half-lives following intravenous and oral administration with the T1/2s of 27.6 h and 18.8 h, respectively. ARD-2128 (5 mg/kg) achieves 67% oral bioavailability in mice, effectively reduces AR protein and suppresses AR-regulated genes in tumor tissues with oral administration, leading to the effective inhibition of tumor growth in mice without signs of toxicity.
