SSR182289A, a Novel, Orally Active Thrombin Inhibitor: In Vitro Profile and ex Vivo Anticoagulant Activity.

Berry CN, Lassalle G, Lunven C, Altenburger JM, Guilbert F, Lale A, Herault JP, Lecoffre C, Pfersdorff C, Herbert JM, O'Connor SE.

Sanofi-Synthelabo Research, Cardiovascular-Thrombosis Department, Chilly-Mazarin and Toulouse, France.

SSR182289A competitively inhibits human thrombin (K(i) = 0.031 +/- 0.002 &mgr;M) and shows good selectivity with respect to other human proteases, e.g., trypsin (K(i) = 54 +/- 2 &mgr;M), factor Xa (K(i) = 167 +/- 9 &mgr;M), and factor VIIa, factor IXa, plasmin, urokinase, tPA, kallikrein, and activated protein C (all K(i) values >250 &mgr;M). In human plasma, SSR182289A demonstrated anticoagulant activity in vitro as measured by standard clotting parameters (EC(100) thrombin time 96 +/- 7 nM) and inhibited tissue factor-induced thrombin generation (IC(50) of 0.15 +/- 0.02 &mgr;M). SSR182289A inhibited thrombin-induced aggregation of human platelets with an IC(50) value of 32 +/- 9 nM, but had no effect on aggregation induced by other platelet agonists. The anticoagulant effects of SSR182289A were studied by measuring changes in coagulation markers ex vivo after i.v. or oral administration in several species. In dogs, SSR182289A (0.1-1 mg/kg i.v. and 1-5 mg/kg p.o.) produced dose-related increases in clotting times. After oral dosing, maximum anticoagulant effects were observed 2 h after administration with increases in thrombin time, 2496 +/- 356%; ecarin clotting time (ECT), 1134 +/- 204%; and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), 91 +/- 20% for the dose of 3 mg/kg p.o., and thrombin time, 3194 +/- 425%; ECT, 2017 +/- 341%; and aPTT, 113 +/- 9% after 5 mg/kg p.o. Eight hours after administration of 3 or 5 mg/kg SSR182289A, clotting times were still elevated. SSR182289A also showed oral anticoagulant activity in rat, rabbit, and macaque. Hence, SSR182289A is a potent, selective, and orally active thrombin inhibitor.

3Q-10Q file:

5. Debt
During the first quarter of 2002, the Company repaid a $5.0 million short-term note. During the first nine months of 2002, the Company entered into a series of loans totaling $7.9 million, payable over 36 to 48 months with interest rates of 11.12% to 11.84%, to finance the purchase of capital equipment and leasehold improvements.

Why they need loan at 12% interest? Is $75 MM too small for their appetite?
Cut the salary, work for free! Suckers! Until you have something to show.
<< We expect that substantially all of our revenue for the foreseeable future will come from corporate collaborations, license agreements, government grants, and interest earned on our cash balances.>>

Will see about that?

They added new collaboration with BMS in 08-02. Hope this one can generate clinical candidate.

<< In August 2002, we entered into a collaborative discovery and lead optimization agreement with BMS, which expires in July 2003. Under the August 2002 agreement, we agreed to assist one another in the optimization of certain BMS compounds. The Company and BMS agreed to allocate and, from time to time, reallocate research funding between the July 2000 agreement and the August 2002 agreement so that the aggregate amount of research funding committed to by BMS through July 2003 under both agreements remains unchanged. Also under the terms of the August 2002 agreement, we are eligible to receive from BMS, depending on whether stipulated milestones are met, aggregate milestone payments of up to $5.0 million for the first product developed, and are eligible to receive additional milestones if subsequent products are developed. We are entitled to receive royalties on sales of products developed pursuant to the agreement.>>

Wow, I do embarrassingly better on my home equity line.
I only have 2k shares, but being required to pay interest north of 11% sends an uncomfortable signal.

Due for news, that's for sure. Looks like everyone will have the BS sensors on high when/if it comes.

MM's taking DDDP up on only 8K shares. Now at 3.75 or up 15%. I guess its their turn to partake in the market move.

Up 22% on only 18K shares traded. Those MM's sure know how to play the game. Not that I am complaining. Been waiting for this one to move for quite a while.

class of Directors expires each year and at each annual meeting the successors
to the Directors of the class whose term is expiring in that year are elected
to hold office for a term of three (3) years and until their successors shall
be elected and qualified.

The three directorships expiring this year are presently filled by Dr. F.
Raymond Salemme, Mr. Joshua Ruch, and Dr. William Claypool

divided into three (3) classes of three (3) Directors each.

Dr. Salemme, Mr. Ruch, and Dr. Claypool have informed the Company that they
are willing to serve for the term to which they are nominated if they are
elected. If a nominee for director should become unavailable for election or is
unable to serve as a Director, the shares represented by proxies voted in favor
of that nominee will be voted for any substitute nominee as may be named by the
Board of Directors.
