Wilmington, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2015 -- FyMed is advancing targeted candidates for both early and advanced colorectal cancer. FY405B is an investigational cancer targeted cytotoxic therapy, a new class of treatments that use the body's own selective pathways to help fight cancer. FyMed has developed substantial preclinical evidence that its drug candidate, FY405B, could effectively kill colon cancer cells through in-vitro studies as well as in animal models of colon cancer.
"Our researchers have identified a specific protein that plays a critical role in processes that occur in the development of the malignant state," according to the Company. "We are able to strategically target these pathways that are expressed in early colorectal cancer, when the tumor is attempting to escape immunologic surveillance". This targeted drug thereby enables the anti-tumoral onslaught of immunomodulatory mechanisms and killing cancer cells at its core.
The Company plans to proceed with clinical trials of FY405B in the management of colon cancer. FyMed's approach includes the strategic application of integrative clinical, pharmacogenomic, proteomic, and molecular phenotypic data with the decisive implementation of focused drug-centric models of companion diagnostics and prognostic driven modalities. Implementation of these approaches will enable the Company to sustain innovation, and lead to more effective and safer therapies in favor of product approval.
