Last year Spherix undertook an asset-centric growth strategy based on SPX-106T, and is now launching a combination-drug discovery platform based on a dynamic data-driven application simulation (DDDAS) approach. In addition to its own combination drugs, Spherix is looking at Phase 1 and Phase 2 assets to roll-up in this platform.
