The purpose of the acquisition is to acquire one (1) annual StarDrop software license for use by the Epilepsy Therapy Screening Program (ETSP).

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Epilepsy Therapy Screening Program (ETSP) screens compounds for seizure activity in a battery of well-established rodent models and was designed to encourage and facilitate the discovery of new therapeutic agents for epilepsy. Currently, if a compound fails efficacy testing in the NINDS Epilepsy Therapy Screening Program (ETSP), there are no tools to improve compound structure or its ADME properties. StarDrop software is vital for guiding ETSP participants in designing of new compounds with improved drug properties, and improved metabolic stability by identifying regions within the molecule that are most vulnerable to metabolism by the major drug-metabolizing isoforms of cytochrome P450.
