NANO-EW, NanoValent's lead cancer drug candidate is a transferrin surface targeted nanoparticle loaded with the chemotherapeutic SN38. The Company's primary indication is Ewing's Sarcoma. However, the firm intends to expand development efforts to include non-small cell lung cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma.

NANO-ALL is a transferrin surface targeted nanoparticle delivering siRNA fragments intended to silence gene sequences specific to acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

The Company is developing therapeutics against pediatric and adult cancers using proprietary polymerized liposomal nanoparticle (PLN) drug delivery technology.


About Nanovalent Pharmaceuticals
NanoValent Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NVP) is a Delaware C-corporation commercializing a drug delivery platform that differentiates itself from other particle delivery systems through several key features. NanoValent particles are highly robust, customizable, stable, cheap, and easy to manufacture. The technology is capable of delivering a wide array of drug molecules or drug cocktails using multiple tissue targeting ligands. While other firms have successfully used targeted particles to deliver pharmaceuticals, few competitors have a payload specific custom offering with the flexibility to target using any surface ligand and deliver virtually any drug or biological payload. The platform product and manufacturing protocols are complete and the company has secured patents along with significant grant funding. The Companyís strategy is to develop several internal delivery programs, while leveraging the versatility of the platform technology providing custom drug delivery solutions to academic and private drug development programs. Internal development efforts are focused on vaccines, cancer therapeutics, and RNAi delivery.
