Introgen applies to market Advexin in Europe

Introgen Therapeutics Inc. and its subsidiary, Gendux Molecular Ltd., have submitted a marketing authorization application to the European Medicines Agency for Advexin, a tumor suppressor therapy for use in the treatment of a type of cancer known as Li-Fraumeni Syndrome.

Austin-based Introgen (NASDAQ: INGN) has offices housing a clinical and regulatory development staff of about 70 in the Texas Medical Center plus a manufacturing facility nearby.

A year ago, the biotech company obtained an exclusive worldwide license to a portfolio of patents from The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, along with agreements to commercialize products based on the licensed technologies. Those patents are focused on the delivery of biologically active proteins, polypeptides and peptides on the nanoparticle level.
