Lead Product in Development

GATC owns and operates an AI platform for due diligence for M&A departments and financial institutions funding drug development, for drug makers in assessing returns investing in the next trial phase or VC or PE firms assessing portfolio risks. GATC's AI platform has proven ability to identify the beneficial effect of a drug candidate in a human with 88% accuracy, while identifying which drugs will fail—and why—with 84% accuracy. The current industry average is less than 10% success rate for drugs entering clinical trials.

In less than 18 months, GATC discovered novel compounds resulting in five novel drug candidates to address Opioid Use Disorder, Cocaine Addiction, PTSD, and other major neurological disorders. UC Irvine has completed animal trials for GATC’s first drug candidate to treat opioid use disorder, with results to be made public in early Q4 of this year. Unlike existing OUD abatement medications, GATC’s drug candidate is not an opioid, so it is not habit forming and with no potential for diversion, thus removing its “street value”. The compound promotes remodeling of the brain’s limbic system by re-wiring learned addiction patterns and maintains sufficient dopamine levels to increase comfort, and thus support continued addiction recovery. In addition to the five compounds that havre completed in-silico design & testing, GATC has compounds for eight additional diseases in our pipeline.
