About Axelar

Axelar is a Swedish biotech company founded in 2003. The company is developing an insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) receptor inhibitor for cancer treatment. Axelar is part of the Karolinska Development portfolio.

About AXL1717

Axelar's lead compound, AXL1717, provides a novel treatment for a wide range of cancers. AXL1717 is the first targeted oral small-molecule IGF-1 receptor inhibitor with no effect on the insulin receptor. AXL1717 is presently undergoing Phase I/II clinical trials and the compound combines a superior preclinical efficacy against numerous tumors with an excellent tolerability profile. Most tumor cells are dependent on the IGF-1 receptor signal pathway and the IGF-1 receptor is therefore regarded as an excellent target for cancer therapy. To date, there are no IGF-1 receptor inhibitor drugs on the market.
