About Summit plc
Summit plc is a leading UK biotechnology company that discovers and
develops proprietary new drugs. The Company's internal drug
development programmes are underpinned by its advanced carbohydrate
chemistry and zebrafish drug screening technology platforms, which it
also provides on a collaborative or fee-for-service basis to the
pharmaceutical industry.
Summit plc has a broad range of drug discovery programmes in the
clinical, pre-clinical and discovery stages of development, which
target serious diseases with a high unmet medical need. These
therapeutic areas include neurological disorders, anti-infectives,
ophthalmic diseases and oncology.
Summit plc's in-house drug development capabilities combine
world-class expertise in both carbohydrate chemistry with
high-volume, high-content screening using its proprietary zebrafish
technologies. These whole organism screens have the potential to
dramatically decrease the time and cost of drug discovery and
development by delivering data that are highly predictive of the
efficacy and toxicity of potential drug compounds in humans.

The company listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange in
October 2004 - symbol: SUMM
