Our platform technologies are designed to administer cancer fighting tumor suppressor genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities.
We are developing our lead product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy, to be administered in combination with targeted therapies and immunotherapies for non-small cell lung cancer. Preclinical research indicates that Oncoprex might also be effective in fighting other types of cancer and we are exploring its use in other cancer types.
We are a multidisciplinary team with broad business experience in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries, and research and clinical experience at preeminent medical and academic institutions around the world. Our management team pairs an unmatched expertise with a knack for innovation in research.

Our platform technologies are designed to administer cancer fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities.
