INDIGO(R) is the market leading integrated drug development solution that accelerates drug candidate delivery from candidate selection through to IND submission in typically less than 52 weeks

Evotec AG (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: EVT, TecDAX, ISIN: DE0005664809) has launched its accelerated drug development service INDiGO(R). With the launch of INDiGO(R), Evotec's expertise and capabilities are uniquely combined under one roof to deliver better drug candidates to patients faster and more efficiently than standard industry approaches.

INDiGO(R) is a proven development solution that has been successfully executed by Evotec's recent acquisition of Aptuit for several years, who are market leaders in providing high-value integrated drug discovery and development solutions. The INDiGO(R) service has been proven to reduce the time and cost of pre-clinical drug development whilst delivering a high-quality data package for CTA/IND level regulatory filings. Typical INDiGO(R) activities include:

API manufacture, formulation development, clinical supply, safety assessment, DMPK, bioanalysis and biomarkers, and regulatory submission documents preparation.

Evotec's partners benefit from a single, integrated provider for all required functions and capabilities coupled with best-in-class project management and seasoned scientific leadership.

Dr Mario Polywka, Chief Operating Officer, commented: "Evotec's INDiGO(R) delivers to our partners a truly integrated approach to accelerate development of their drug candidates to regulatory submission in the most time- and cost-efficient manner. Our track record and expertise in combing the appropriate scientific knowledge with the right technical processes and project management ensures on time and budget delivery of clinic ready candidates. INDiGO(R) allows our customers to seamlessly transition from candidate selection into the regulatory space and to patients efficiently and quickly."

Dr Roberto Dorigatti, Senior Vice President, Integrated Development Programmes, said: "Our INDiGO(R) is a truly integrated drug development solution. It is unique in the industry and has a proven track record of success in dramatically reducing (by more than 50%) time and costs during the IND-enabling phase of development and never compromising quality and scientific integrity. Our experienced team understands drug development and not only executes projects but proactively contributes to the science and strategy to expedite new medicines to the market."
