Cathepsin S, Virobay’s lead drug candidate, was selected by Windhover as one of the top 10 most interesting inflammatory/autoimmune projects available for partnering.

"Selected companies have been screened using a strict set of judging criteria for the Top 10 award and represent what our committees considered the most attractive anti-inflammatory/autoimmune opportunities the industry has to offer," said David Cassak, Vice President, Content, Windhover Conferences, a division of Elsevier Business Intelligence.

"Winners have met rigorous criteria, including: unmet medical need, market potential, diversity of indications, strong science, multi-level partnering opportunities (biotech and pharma), potential for new opportunities beyond initial indications and corporate stability."
