A fixed fee based Scope of Work (SOW) has been agreed to, as part of the MSA, whereby NetraMark will aid in determining the factors driving both drug response and placebo response according to the variables included in the stratification models derived from the data collected by Denovo through the NetraAI technology.

“We are very pleased to be helping Denovo in their drug development efforts for treatment resistant depression. Our proprietary technology is able to inform clinical trials about drug efficacy, placebo response, and ultimate medicine. This helps patients get new treatments they require more quickly Denovo’s approach to biomarker-guided drug development is unique in the industry and expected to be synergistic with our technology,” says Dr. Joseph GeraciChief Scientific Officer.

Denovo Biopharma has secured approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to begin a Phase IIb clinical trial of DB104 (liafensine) in individuals with treatment-resistant depression (TRD). The agreement will allow Denovo to tap into NetraMark’s award winning NetraPlacebo solution which includes their proprietary Placebo Response Propensity Scale (PRPS) to support this trial. Nurosene announced the launch of this product in February. Link here.

“Our partnership with NetraMark adds their industry leading technology and expertise to our innovative, biomarker-guided drug development approach to drug development,” says Dr. Larry AlphsSenior Vice President, Denovo Biopharma LLC.
