About Diffusion Pharmaceuticals LLC

Diffusion Pharmaceuticals LLC is a clinical-stage drug-development company commercializing a family of first-in-class drug candidates to treat serious or life-threatening medical conditions. These proprietary small molecules use a novel method of action to enhance oxygen diffusion to oxygen deprived (hypoxic) tissue. Potential clinical applications include cancer, critical care uses such as trauma, hemorrhage, stroke and heart attack, as well as chronic conditions such as peripheral arterial and vascular disease, cardiovascular disease, and respiratory disorders. Enhanced diffusion of oxygen into hypoxic tissue has an important application in oncology by improving the efficacy of radiation therapy in cancerous tumors. A Phase 1 study for its lead molecule, trans sodium crocetinate (TSC), in healthy subjects was successfully completed in 2007. The company is now initiating proof-of-concept and dose-finding studies in cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy and in peripheral arterial disease patients suffering from intermittent claudication. Diffusion Pharmaceuticals, which is privately held, is located in Charlottesville, Virginia. For more information, visit http://www.diffusionpharma.com.
