BPGbio’s Microtubule Targeting Agent & Pan Cancer

BPGbio has been conducting ongoing research on their molecule BRG399 for the treatment of solid tumors. BRG399, an oral experimental drug with favorable pharmacological properties for clinical testing, is a first in class anti-mitotic agent with broad-spectrum anti-cancer activity. BPGbio’s scientists reported that the anti-mitotic activity of BRG399 is the result of an inhibition of microtubule polymerization.

BRG399 is leading the new oncology drug pipeline for BPGbio including those uniquely targeting E2 enzymes.

BPGbio’s Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) vs Prostate Cancer Screening Panel

BPGbio’s prostate health screening panel is a blood-based test, and it provides guidance in men with BPH/LUTS (enlarged prostate) to determine their risk of detecting aggressive prostate cancer, avoiding the need for unnecessary biopsies. Additionally, the panel has demonstrated potential in preventing multiple unnecessary biopsies in high-risk men, who would have been guided by elevated PSA to receive a biopsy.

BPGbio’s prostate health screening panel is entering into early commercialization phase.
