FLAG Therapeutics and Duquesne University Announce Exclusive Worldwide Licensing Agreement for Novel, Dual-action Targeted Oncology Compounds
Date:12/4/2013

current therapies.

The second class of drugs, FTAC compounds, is designed to selectively bind to sites found almost exclusively on certain cancer cells and interrupt cell multiplication.  Traditional anti-cancer drugs indiscriminately kill cells as they divide, the result being that while rapidly dividing cancer cells bear the brunt of the toxic activity, fast dividing normal cells (blood cells, mucosal linings and hair follicles) incur collateral damage.  FLAG's FTAC compounds are engineered to specifically and selectively bind to targeted cancer cells to avoid harming healthy cells.

Frank Sorgi, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of FLAG Therapeutics, stated, "I am pleased to partner with Duquesne University to further develop AA/AT and FTAC compounds.  Dr. Gangjee is a highly respected researcher, and FLAG is honored to be in the position to advance his discoveries from the bench, into the clinic, and ultimately to individuals in need of new cancer therapeutic treatment options."  Dr. Sorgi continued, "We already have identified lead clinical candidates, each supported with encouraging comparative in vivo data versus current therapies, and we look forward to rapidly advancing these compounds into clinical trials."

Dr. Alan Seadler, associate provost for research and technology at Duquesne, commented, "We feel this licensing agreement provides the best possible strategy to develop the discoveries of Dr. Gangjee and hopefully provide life-saving drugs to people battling cancer.  We are particularly pleased to be working with FLAG Therapeutics to reach this goal."
