Nuvelo, Inc. is dedicated to improving the lives of patients through the discovery, development and commercialization of novel drugs for acute cardiovascular and cancer therapy. Nuvelo's development pipeline includes three acute cardiovascular programs: alfimeprase, a direct-acting thrombolytic for the treatment of thrombotic-related disorders which is suspended pending review and analysis of clinical data; rNAPc2, an anticoagulant that inhibits the factor VIIa and tissue factor protease complex that completed Phase 2 clinical development in acute coronary syndromes; and preclinical candidate NU172, a direct thrombin inhibitor for use as a short-acting anticoagulant during medical procedures. Nuvelo is also advancing an emerging oncology pipeline, including rNAPc2 which is in Phase 2 testing for potential use as a cancer therapy, as well as NU206, a preclinical candidate for the potential treatment of chemotherapy/radiation therapy-induced mucositis and inflammatory bowel disease.
