Adherex Technologies Incorporated Company Profile

06:42 EST 21st November 2018 | BioPortfolio

Adherex Technologies is a biotechnology company developing novel therapeutics based on cell adhesion technologies. Adherex is currently developing a portfolio of biologically active small molecules based on the cadherin family of cell adhesion molecules. Cadherins are the major biological glues that hold tissues intact. They play an important role in maintaining the integrity of tissues and barriers in the body, development, recovery from injury, and cancer. Adherex has successfully developed compounds that alter the level of adhesion between cells. The Company is now investigating the applications of these cell adhesion modulators.

Adherex has discovered a revolutionary new approach to cancer therapy. Our cadherin modulating drug Exherin has displayed potent anti-vascular activity. At therapeutic concentrations it effectively destroys tumor vessels without harming normal vessels. Though initial examination of Exherin's effects may suggest that they are like those of other anti-angiogenesis agents (which block the process of blood vessel formation), Exherin goes far beyond anything those agents can do. Exherin not only stops growth of new tumor vessels, it destroys existing tumor vessels. Adherex is the first and only company in the world that is focused on the relationship between cell-cell adhesion and cancer.
