Cyprotex, the pharmaceuticals company specialising in the adverse effects of chemicals on living organisms, has signed a collaborative research agreement with US pharmaceuticals giant Pfizer.

The two parties will evaluate, further develop, and improve several of Cyprotex's proprietary offerings in the area of predictive toxicology.

The deal extends over an eighteen month period and is split into two stages with the second stage being dependent on certain milestones being achieved.

Predicting drug-induced toxicity is a challenging field, and we are making significant advances by combining our knowledge with that of our partners and clients," said Dr Anthony Baxter, Cyprotex's Chief Executive Officer.
