From both a scientific and emotional perspective, it’s an exciting time to be part of the animal health industry. Many therapeutics in development for humans have great potential to help solve unmet medical needs in pets. At the same time, dogs and cats are living longer as cherished members of the family who merit the quality of care these potentially new therapeutics can offer.
Aratana Therapeutics is positioned at the intersection of the best of human science and veterinary medicine. Both humans and pets are experiencing some of the same health concerns, such as how to manage pain and inappetence, as well as effective and tolerable treatments for cancer, viral diseases and allergy. Veterinarians currently have relatively few prescription medicines at their disposal that have been specifically approved for use in pets to meet these growing needs.
An ideal product for potential in licensing will have demonstrated some very specific criteria:
- Proof of safety in the target species
- Proof of efficacy in at least two mammalian species
- Well-defined manufacturing process for the active pharmaceutical ingredient (for small molecule drugs)
We are seeking and reviewing therapeutic opportunities in many areas of pet health, including:
Urinary Tract Disorders
