About VioQuest Pharmaceuticals

VioQuest focuses on acquiring, developing, and commercializing targeted late preclinical and early clinical stage therapies with unique mechanisms of action primarily for oncology and infectious diseases. VioQuest has three targeted drug candidates in clinical development: VQD-002 which inhibits activation of Akt that is seen at abnormally high levels in breast, ovarian, colorectal, pancreatic, and hematologic cancers; Lenocta(TM), an inhibitor of specific protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPases), SHP-1 and SHP-2, which has shown compelling clinical and biological activity in solid tumors and Xyfid(TM), a topical therapy which has shown early clinical promise in the treatment and prevention of chemo-induced Hand-Foot Syndrome (HFS). VioQuest anticipates commencing several Phase II trials for VQD-002, Lenocta(TM) and Xyfid(TM) in the second half of 2007. In addition, VioQuest and the U.S. Army are planning to submit a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2007 for Lenocta(TM) for the treatment of leishmaniasis.
