ActoKine Therapeutics Company Profile

12:56 EST 17th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

Cancer therapy using cytotoxic drugs or radiation has negative side effects on normal cells. To date, the pharmaceutical industry has not been able to produce a drug that can provide the dual functions of protecting normal cells while sensitizing tumor cells to cancer therapy. With consultation and guidance from industry experts, ActoKine will collaborate with international drug companies and institutions towards the goal of solving this cancer therapy problem.
ActoKine Therapeutics was founded in 2003 by Dr.Grace Wong to leverage the founder's experience in cytokine research in several therapeutic areas gained over many years in four biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies (Genentech, Millennium Pharmaceutical, AstraZeneca and Serono). Using a unique business strategy, ActoKine will initially focus its efforts on Actokine-1 for radioprotecton and ActoKine-2 for virus prevention, two late stage pre-clinical product candidates. In addition, ActoKine Therapeutics will discover other small molecule candidates for similar biological properties (protection of normal cells while selective killing of tumor or virus-infected cells
