Corvas International Incorporated Company Profile

00:06 EDT 23rd October 2017 | BioPortfolio

Corvas International, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on development of a new generation of drugs that address today's largest medical markets, cardiovascular disease and cancer, based on our expertise in vascular biology and protease modulation. We have a strategic alliance with Pfizer Inc for the development and commercialization of our novel anti-inflammatory agent (rNIF or UK-279,276) to treat ischemic stroke. Completion of patient recruitment into the Phase IIb clinical trial of UK-279,276 was recently announced with results expected in mid-2002. We expect to initiate a Phase IIb clinical trial for the treatment of unstable angina in 2002 with our potent anticoagulant rNAPc2. Our cancer drug discovery programs are focused on the development of therapeutic drugs that modulate the activity of serine proteases associated with the growth and progression of solid tumors through the use of innovative chemistry and biology-based platform technologies. We have developed our portfolio of drug candidates by integrating an in-depth knowledge of serine protease inhibition and the biology of thrombosis and, more generally, vascular biology with advanced and proprietary drug discovery and design technology.
