About GENova Biotherapeutics Inc.

GENova is positioning itself as the world's leading bioscience company in the development and commercial licensure of novel therapeutic proteins that disrupt the advance of life-threatening cancers and infectious disease. The company leverages cutting-edge research collaborations to achieve breakthroughs in anti-cancer treatments, and then licenses these patented drug product candidates to Big Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology companies.At present, GENova is rapidly building its portfolio of proprietary biotechnology. GENova's target market - cancer treatments - is the largest disease market, exploding at a 20% growth rate each year. GENova's treatment niche is based on recent discoveries that indicate that most tumors are derived from a single cancer-initiating cell population which has stem cell properties (a cancer stem cell). GENova has chosen to concentrate on identification of certain cell-specific characteristics, making it possible to identify precursor cells of tumors, and then conduct a more extensive 'fingerprinting' profile that will enable the development of cell-specific anti-cancer treatments. This will result in a 'tailor made' cancer treatment strategy that is superior to existing therapies in its ability to eradicate malignant cells whilst leaving healthy tissue intact.
