About Tarveda Therapeutics®, Inc.
Tarveda Therapeutics is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing a new class of potent and selective precision oncology medicines, which it refers to as Pentarin® miniature drug conjugates, for the treatment of patients with various solid tumor malignancies. Tarveda currently has two Pentarin miniature drug conjugates in clinical trials. Its first clinical program, PEN-866, is its initial candidate from its Heat Shock Protein 90 (HSP90) binding miniature drug conjugate platform. HSP90 is a molecular chaperone that is highly activated in the harsh tumor environment across a wide range of solid tumor cancers, but which remains relatively dormant in normal tissue. PEN-866 is currently completing its Phase 1 dose escalation portion of its “all comers” trial of various types of solid tumors and is anticipating conclusion of this Phase 1 dose escalation study in the first quarter of 2020. Tarveda’s second clinical program, PEN-221, is a Pentarin miniature drug conjugate currently in clinical evaluation for the treatment of patients with solid tumors expressing somatostatin receptor 2, or SSTR2, on the cell surface such as neuroendocrine tumors and small cell lung cancer. PEN-221 is a proprietary asset discovered in-house and is currently progressing through its Phase 2a trial. For more information regarding Tarveda, go to: https://www.tarvedatx.com/.
