Project Term: November 16, 2010 - TBD
In November 2010, LLS made an equity investment in BioTheryX originally to support the development of a promising LLS-funded project with Toronto-based University Health Network and is currently supporting "An Open Label, Escalating Multiple Dose Study to Evaluate the Safety, Toxicity, Pharmacokinetics, and Preliminary Activity of BTX-1188 in Subjects With Advanced Malignancies." BioTheryX has a technology platform in the field of targeted protein degradation. This technology utilizes the body's own protein disposal system to selectively degrade and remove disease-causing proteins. It has potential applicability to a very broad range of disease targets, including a wide range of targets that have to date been considered "undruggable." BXT-1188 is an oral, dual target protein degrader specifically engineered to degrade GSPT1 and IKZF1/3. A clinical study of BTX-1188 in patients with relapsed or refractory AML or NHL is currently enrolling.
