Denovo Biopharma is a privately held biotech company using a novel biomarker solution to personalize drug development.   We acquire drugs which have failed Phase 2/Phase 3 clinical trials, discover novel biomarkers, and reenter late-stage trials.  The core technology of the company is its industry's first platform and algorithm to perform de novo genomic biomarker discovery retrospectively using archived clinical samples. This technology is especially useful for late stage clinical drugs that have completed trials with unsatisfactory efficacy or side effect. By identifying biomarkers correlated to patients' responsiveness to drug candidates retrospectively, our technology enables biotech and pharmaceutical companies to design new clinical trials in targeted patient population to achieve higher efficacy and/or less adverse effects. Our platform can be broadly applied to biomarker discovery in most therapeutic areas, such as oncology and neurological diseases.  Our pipeline is filled with first-in-class drugs from Big Pharma that we are applying our biomarker discovery approach to.  Our lead compound is Enzastaurin, an oncology drug acquired from Eli Lilly.  It is in a global biomarker-guided Phase 3 pivotal study for first-line DLBCL using genetic biomarkers that Denovo successfully discovered.  We have also discovered a novel genetic biomarker for our drug liafensine, for treatment-resistant depression, and plan on starting a Phase 2b study using it this year.  Additional we have six other late-stage drugs that are in earlier stages of biomarker discovery.

We are looking for entrepreneurs who will thrive in our collaborative environment and share our mission to change the future of medicine.
