GenSpera, Inc. is developing a novel technology platform that combines a powerful, plant-derived cytotoxin (thapsigargin) with a patented prodrug delivery system that targets the release of drugs within solid tumors without the side effects of chemotherapeutic agents. Mipsagargin, GenSpera’s lead drug candidate, has demonstrated positive data in a Phase 2 clinical trial in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) and has been granted Orphan Drug designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in this indication. Mipsagargin is being evaluated in a Phase 2 clinical trial for glioblastoma multiforme (brain cancer) and has demonstrated highly encouraging interim data in this ongoing trial.
