About Vicus Therapeutics
Vicus Therapeutics is a privately-held, biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of pharmaceutical product candidates for the treatment of cancer supportive care indications with an initial focus on cachexia. Vicus' strategy involves combining individual generic drugs that have previously received regulatory approval for other indications and thus have established post-marketing safety records. Vicus leverages its proprietary science to design and patent novel drug combinations that work together to reverse the body's maladaptive responses to cancer and its treatment. Vicus' lead combination product candidate, VT-122, is in Phase 2 clinical trials for the treatment of cancer cachexia in patients with advanced lung cancer. Additionally, Vicus has preclinical-stage combination product candidates being evaluated for the treatment of oral mucositis and cancer fatigue. Vicus' development programs are powered by its network of leading clinical investigators and partners in the US, India and Japan. This international network drives the high quality, rapid and cost effective clinical development of Vicus' product candidates.
