02:07 EDT 26th March 2019 | BioPortfolio

GTx, Inc., headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, is a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the discovery, development and commercialization of novel hormonal therapeutics for cancer and serious conditions related to men’s health. GTx's lead drug discovery and development programs are focused on small molecules that selectively modulate the effects of estrogens and androgens. GTx is developing ACAPODENE® (toremifene citrate), a selective estrogen receptor modulator, or SERM, in two separate clinical programs in men: first, a pivotal Phase III clinical trial evaluating ACAPODENE® 80 mg for the treatment of serious side effects of androgen deprivation therapy for advanced prostate cancer, and second, a pivotal Phase III clinical trial evaluating ACAPODENE® 20 mg for the prevention of prostate cancer in high risk men with the premalignant lesion known as high grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia. GTx has licensed to Ipsen Group exclusive rights in Europe to develop and commercialize ACAPODENE®. GTx also is developing ostarine, a first-in-class selective androgen receptor modulator, or SARM. GTx believes that ostarine has the potential to treat a variety of indications, including cancer cachexia, end stage renal disease muscle wasting, frailty and osteoporosis. GTx plans to initiate a Phase IIb ostarine clinical trial for cancer cachexia by the summer of 2007. GTx also has an extensive preclinical pipeline generated from a world-class discovery program which includes the specific product candidates prostarine, a SARM for benign prostatic hyperplasia, and andromustine, an anticancer product candidate, for hormone refractory prostate cancer.
