About Bicycle Therapeutics
Bicycle Therapeutics is developing a new class of medicines to treat oncology and other debilitating diseases based on its proprietary bicyclic peptide (BicycleTM) product platform. BicyclesTM exhibit an affinity and exquisite target specificity usually associated with antibodies, while a low molecular weight delivers rapid and deep tissue penetration enabling more efficient tumor targeting. Their peptidic nature provides a “tuneable” pharmacokinetic half-life and a renal route of clearance, avoiding the liver and gastrointestinal tract toxicities often seen with other drug modalities. Bicycle Therapeutics is rapidly advancing towards the clinic with its lead molecule, BT1718, and is collaborating in oncology and other areas to realize the full potential of the technology. Bicycle Therapeutics’ unique intellectual property is based on the work initiated at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, U.K., by the scientific founders of the company, Sir Gregory Winter and Professor Christian Heinis. Bicycle Therapeutics is headquartered in Cambridge, U.K., with a U.S. subsidiary in Cambridge, Massachusetts. For more information, visit www.bicycletherapeutics.com.
