CEO Jakob Lindberg on Oncopeptides and Ygalo.
Oncopeptides is a clinical development pharmaceutical company focused on bringing anti-cancer research as treatments for the benefit of patients.
Oncopeptides is currently in late-stage development and is undertaking registration studies for Ygalo®, the first targeted cytotoxic therapy intended for use in the treatment of multiple myeloma. The first indication is late-stage relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma.
Ygalo is a peptidase potentiated alkylator, a type of cytotoxic drug. Ygalo differs from current cytotoxics through its unique ability to achieve higher concentrations of cancer killing molecules in cancer cells without a corresponding increase in damage to the patient’s bone marrow. Pre-clinical studies also show that Ygalo kills on average 50 times more cancer cells than similar classes of treatment.
The shareholders in Oncopeptides AB are hereby given notice to attend the Annual General Meeting to be held in the Banquet room at IVA Conference center, Grev Turegatan 16, Stockholm, Sweden, Thursday 18 May 2017 at 4.00 p.m.
Ygalo is an alkylating agent that leverages the overrepresentation of peptidase enzymes in cancer cells to increase the concentration of active cancer fighting molecules in myeloma cells: it is a peptidase potentiated alkylator.
