RRx-001 leads EpicentRx’s CyNRGY platform as a first-in-class investigational treatment sourced from an exclusively licensed portfolio of aerospace-derived small molecules. RRx-001 is a multifaceted treatment with a dual-functioning mechanism that starts under “normal” conditions, or healthy tissues that are reasonably well-oxygenated, and the activity changes in poorly oxygenated (hypoxic) tissues, which is a distinguishing characteristic of cancerous tumors.
About EpicentRx, Inc. EpicentRx is a leading-edge biopharmaceutical company with a complementary pipeline of small molecule and cancer-targeting virus platforms that represent the next frontier in treating patients with diseases of significant unmet need. With two platforms, CyNRGY and AdAPT, EpicentRx has developed novel therapies and drug delivery devices with emphasis on not just treating the disease but improving quality of life.
