ArQule Takes the Drug Discovery Plunge

Over the past two-and-one-half years, ArQule's new management has refocused the once divided company, and repaired its reputation in the eyes of the financial community. That leadership also decided that ArQule can reach its growth potential only by moving away from a fee-for-services model and becoming a full-fledged drug discovery company. It's a transition that few companies have successfully managed, in part because of the tough balancing act required to build the requisite R&D infrastructure, while devoting sufficient resources to the near-term activity needed to build that infrastructure. ArQule will likely try to acquire biology-based companies to gain control over its own targets, but must deal with the valuation imbalance that still favors genomics/biology firms. But ArQule's management believes that its technology platform--as enhanced by the addition of predictive ADMET modeling--will boost its ability to process target into targets and thus its value.

Combinatorial Chemistry's Challenge

As large companies integrate combinatorial chemistry skills, small companies try to maintain their {raison d'être} with smaller "smarter" libraries, novel chemistries and informatics capabilities. They're also trying to build proprietary positions with drug leads of their own through 50-50 deals.

From Newton to Heisenberg--The New Physics of the Drug Industry

While the current wave of high profile drug industry deals recalls the heady days of 1980s consolidation, the motivations are quite different. Managed care is forcing companies to prize the efficient leveraging of assets, not critical mass. In today's drug industry, companies will manage for strategic diversity, juggling a number of different platforms at one time. Successful companies will by no means all have been successful using the same set of tools.
