Cyclis Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Normally during the cell cycle, molecular signaling checkpoints prevent cell division in the event of chromosomal shuffling or DNA damage. Cyclis Pharmaceuticals is developing cancer drugs that turn on the deactivated cellular surveillance system, leading to apoptosis and cell death.

Cancer Therapeutics: Finding a Niche

VCs and CEOs cite the rapid clinical development and recent commercial success of Gleevec and Herceptin as the mere tip of the iceberg of a new generation of gene-based cancer drugs. New treatments are being specifically targeted to genes that up- or down-regulate different characteristics of tumor cells-in particular proliferation, angiogenesis, survival, and apoptosis. We highlight four emerging oncology companies, ranging from firms that have rights to individual compounds against gene targets to those developing broad-based oncology drug delivery platforms.
