CALAA-01, currently undergoing a Phase I clinical trial, is believed to be the first siRNA therapeutic to enter the oncology clinic. To our knowledge, it is also the first systemically delivered siRNA therapeutic formulated with a targeted delivery system. Calando's RONDEL™ delivery system was developed to address the long-standing obstacle of effective delivery and targeting for this potentially revolutionary new class of pharmaceuticals. CALAA-01 is a targeted nanoparticle comprised of a patented, non-chemically-modified siRNA against the M2 subunit of ribonucleotide reductase, a clinically-validated cancer target and the RONDEL system.

IT-101, Calando's lead candidate delivering a small molecule drug, began clinical trials in 2006. IT-101 demonstrated safety and favorable pharmacokinetic properties in Phase I clinical trials and is currently undergoing a Phase II clinical trial. IT-101 is a conjugate of Cyclosert™, Calando's proprietary delivery system for small molecule drugs, and camptothecin. Both RONDEL™ and Cyclosert™ utilize modified cyclodextrin molecules to create an entirely new class of drug delivery materials, which Calando believes have the ability to solve many of the deficiencies observed in therapeutic product candidates.
