Protox Therapeutics is a product-focused development-stage company and a leader in advancing novel, targeted protein toxin therapeutics for the treatment of cancer and other proliferative diseases. Through the company’s INxin™ and PORxin™ technology platforms, therapeutic candidates are generated by engineering the naturally occurring toxins, Pseudomonas exotoxin and proaerolysin. These drugs are potent anti-cancer agents with distinct modes of action.INxin™ drugs target cancer cells that produce specific tumor associated receptors on their cell surface. Once bound to the cancer cells, INxin™ drugs enter the cell and inhibit protein synthesis which ultimately leads to cell death. A Phase II clinical trial has been completed with Protox’s lead compound, PRX321, for the treatment of primary brain cancer, specifically recurrent malignant glioblastoma multiforme and astrocytoma. A Phase I clinical trial has also been completed for both renal cell carcinoma and non-small cell lung cancer. PRX321 is also in pre-clinical development for other peripheral solid tumors and hematological tumors
