China-based pharmaceutical company HitGen has announced a research collaboration with Dorian Therapeutics on May 24th. Under the agreement, HitGen will receive an undisclosed upfront payment from Dorian.

HitGen, renowned for its DNA-encoded libraries (DEL) in early drug discovery and is profited by it. DEL enables the synthesis and screening of unprecedented chemicals more efficiently, and it is now available for over 1 trillion DNA-encoded compounds. The collaboration with Dorian shows HitGen’s ambition to expand its pharmaceutical business in age-related diseases.


Senoblockers – Treatments Enhancing Regenerative Capacity of Aging cells

Senoblockers are treatments for aging diseases developed by Dorian. They act on aged tissues to reactivate the generation of cells, which provide therapeutics for aging diseases like Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and autoimmune diseases. HitGen will apply its platform technology to those disease targets senoblockers treat for.


Previous Collaborations

On April 6th, HitGen signed a drug discovery collaboration with BioAge, a company specializing in building biobanks that identify drug targets of elderly diseases. The partnership with BioAge and Dorian has the potential for HitGen to open up markets on age-associated diseases.

“We look forward to working with Dorian to identify novel small molecule starting points from DNA-encoded libraries,” Dr. Jin Li, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of HitGen said, “We will work closely with Dorian scientists to generate new lead compounds for their research programs to address unmet medical needs associated with aging.”
