Our Story

We are a clinical-stage oncology therapeutics company, taking a Precision Cancer MedicineTM (PCM) approach to develop drugs that target cell division (mitosis) for the treatment of leukemias, lymphomas and solid tumor cancers.

In March, 2017, we licensed global development and commercialization rights for onvansertib (PCM-075), a Polo-like Kinase 1 (PLK1) Inhibitor, from Nerviano Medical Sciences, the largest research and development company in Italy, and leader in protein kinase drug development (Polo-like Kinase Inhibitors).

Onvansertib is a first-in-class, 3rd generation, oral and highly-selective adenosine triphosphate (ATP) competitive inhibitor of the serine/threonine polo-like Kinase 1 (PLK1) enzyme. PLK1 is over-expressed in many cancers, including leukemias, lymphomas and solid tumors and plays a critical role in the initiation, maintenance and completion of cell division.

Our Focus – Precision Cancer MedicineTM

Onvansertib represents a pipeline within a molecule. It is a highly-selective inhibitor of a proven cancer target, PLK1, which is over-expressed in most cancers, it is synergistic in combination with most chemotherapies and targeted therapeutics, and orally administered. Collectively, the characteristics of onvansertib are enabling clinical development across a wide variety of cancers where there is a significant need for new treatment options.

We are taking a PCMTM approach to developing onvansertib by integrating a predictive clinical biomarker strategy, which we believe will help us identify sub-populations of patients who are most likely to respond to treatment.

Onvansertib is being developed as part of a combination regimen with already approved therapies to treat leukemias, lymphomas and solid tumor cancers. In-vitro and in-vivo preclinical data has demonstrated synergy (the interaction of two or more agents produces a combined effect greater than the sum of their individual effects) when onvansertib is part of a combination regimen, which we believe has the potential to improve efficacy, extend the duration of response to treatment and have a positive impact on clinical outcomes.

Onvansertib – Expanding Treatment Options for Patients

We are advancing clinical development of onvansertib for indications where there is a significant medical need to provide new cancer treatment options for patients.

PLK1 is essential for precisely regulating the cell division and maintaining genome stability in mitosis (cell division), spindle assembly, and DNA damage response. Studies have shown that PLK1 is highly expressed in most cancers, and its over-expression is associated with poor prognosis in patients. Data has shown that blocking the expression of PLK1 by kinase inhibitors can effectively inhibit the proliferation of and induce apoptosis (death) of tumor cells.
