About WntResearch

WntResearch is developing an entirely new kind of cancer drug, which inhibits the tumour cells" ability to spread through the body and metastasize. The majority of cancer deaths are due to metastases, and there are no therapies available that can prevent that. Foxy-5, the Company"s most advanced drug candidate, is a peptide that mimics the body"s own WNT5A protein. In preclinical trials, Foxy-5 has demonstrated ability to suppress the mobility and invasive power of cancer cells, and thus to inhibit metastasis. Phase 1 studies on patients with colon, prostate and breast cancer have demonstrated a good safety profile and favourable pharmacokinetics, and early data indicates biological activity. A Phase 2 multicenter study is underway on patients with colon cancer, in order to study the anti-metastasizing efficacy of Foxy-5. WntResearch"s share is listed on Spotlight Stock Market.
