Developing Novel Compounds Targeting Cancers and Viruses

The Company has developed a robust pipeline of proprietary compounds to distinguish themselves from the competition through their unique kinase selectivity, efficacy and safety profiles.

Consistent with its well defined mechanism of action, ViroStatics’ lead compound has a good toxicity profile while exerting potent activity in preclinical models against most aggressive cancers with high unmet need such as pancreatic cancer, highly malignant lymphoma and acute leukemia, lung cancer and breast cancer.
