About NanCogenics
NanCogenics is a nanobiotechnology venture that has validated, in pre-clinical studies, a technology platform for the tumor-specific targeting of therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, focusing initially on a clinical procedure for breast cancer. The proprietary platform delivers, through systemic administration, chemotherapeutic pro-drug constructs to the tumor micro-environment, generating effective anti-tumor results without harm to normal tissue or organs. The Co-Founders believe that the advancement of this platform to the clinic will lead to significant improvements in localized cancer chemotherapy, while also providing a localization platform for a range of new therapeutics now under development.

The Company is now advancing the technology platform on an initial clinical path as a treatment modality for breast cancers. As noted by Dr. Klostergaard, “There is an emerging realization that despite much effort, the prevailing approach to development of targeted therapeutics has yielded too few clinical successes, and that the plasticity of tumors and the range of their mutations may undermine the basis for targeting individual signaling pathways.” Dr. Klostergaard further points out that the NanCogenics approach adds a biophysical targeting component for localized delivery, intended to advance drug targeting technology significantly beyond conventional targeting methodologies.

The Co-Founders of NanCogenics see the Company as a resource for enhanced and improved therapeutic performance, delivering higher concentrations of drug to the target site, with less to healthy tissue. The capacity to localize cytotoxic drugs in high concentrations will lead to more effective treatment regimens, greater patient compliance to therapy and improved outcomes, such as patient quality of life and survival rates. The compactness and modular design of the Magnetic Localization Unit also presents a mobility feature, offering a capability to reach under-served populations, in addition to treatment centers within established healthcare facilities.
