We are expanding our product pipeline by using our proprietary technologies, our knowledge of liver diseases and our expertise in pathways and proteins residing in the liver that significantly contribute to metabolic diseases. We have additional expertise in processes in the liver that are important for drug uptake, metabolism and excretion, all of which are important for targeting drugs to the liver with high specificity. We have used this knowledge to develop our proprietary NuMimetic and HepDirect technologies, which we use in several of our research programs. Our NuMimetic technology encompasses know-how and compound libraries that are useful in discovering molecules that bind effectively and specifically to nucleotide binding sites on certain key enzymes controlling important metabolic pathways. Our HepDirect technology is a proprietary technology used to target drugs to the liver. We also have expertise in structure-based drug design, and we have developed novel computational methods useful for predicting drug binding effectiveness and specificity. These methods have aided our design and discovery of novel drug compounds.
