Small molecule pipeline:

PX-866 Targets the Phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI-3K) Pathway

PX-866 is a small molecule drug that irreversibly inhibits phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI-3K), a family of intracellular signaling molecules that play essential roles in multiple cellular functions. In normal cells the PI-3K pathway is tightly controlled, whereas the inappropriate activation of PI-3K is important in the pathogenesis of multiple human cancers, making it a rational and attractive target for drug development.

ONT-701

ONT-701 is a pan-inhibitor of the B-cell lymphoma-2, or Bcl-2, family of anti-apoptotic proteins. Overexpression of one or more members of the Bcl-2 family of proteins is common in most human cancers.

ONT-701 and related compounds were obtained through an exclusive licensing agreement with the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute. ONT-710 is currently in preclinical development.

Vaccines:

L-BLP25

L-BLP25 (formerly Stimuvax®) is a therapeutic vaccine designed to stimulate an individual's immune system to recognize cancer cells and control the growth and spread of cancers in order to increase the survival of cancer patients. L-BLP25 incorporates a 25-amino acid sequence of the cancer-associated marker MUC-1 in a liposomal formulation. The vaccine is thought to work by stimulating a T-cell mediated immune response to cancer cells expressing the target MUC-1.
