THE POTENTIAL OF GLUTAMINE ANTAGONISTS

IN IMMUNO-METABOLISM AND CANCER

DRACEN HAS DEVELOPED NOVEL, BROAD ACTING GLUTAMINE ANTAGONISTS WITH POWERFUL DIRECT ANTI-TUMOR APOPTOTIC PROPERTIES AS WELL AS ENDOGENOUS ANTI-TUMOR IMMUNE MODULATORY MECHANISMS.

DRACEN HAS DEMONSTRATED A DRAMATIC SURVIVAL BENEFIT IN ANIMAL MODELS WHEN THE GLUTAMINE ANTAGONISTS ARE ADDED TO CORE ANTI-PD-1 CHECKPOINT INHIBITOR THERAPY - EVEN IN MODELS WITH DEMONSTRATED RESISTANCE TO ANTI-PD-1.


OUR GOAL IS TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF RESPONDERS TO THERAPY, EXTEND SURVIVAL, AND PROVIDE ANTI-TUMOR RESPONSES IN AREAS CURRENTLY EVADING IMMUNO-ONCOLOGY APPROACHES.
