OncoTherics Ltd.

Cancers, even those that initially respond to treatment, can become resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy; one of the causes behind this is the hypoxia found in some tumors. OncoTherics Ltd. is tackling this by developing non-toxic prodrugs that are activated to potent anticancer drugs in hypoxic conditions, selectively targeting the hard-to-treat cancer cells but sparing healthy tissue.
