About Bexion Pharmaceuticals
Bexion Pharmaceuticals, a mid-stage clinical biopharmaceutical company, is developing a new generation of biological immunotherapy to treat solid tumor cancers and chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) with potential opportunities for portfolio expansion into other cancers and broader indications of neuropathic pain. Bexion’s lead drug candidate is BXQ-350, a first-in-class biologic containing the multifunctional lysosomal activator protein, saposin C and a phosphatidylserine.
BXQ-350, an “S1P activator”, has demonstrated preclinical antitumor effects in vitro and in vivo, particularly in colorectal, brain and other solid tumors. Bexion has completed two Phase 1 monotherapy programs in adults and in a pediatric population. Phase 1 programs have demonstrated a strong safety profile with evidence of single agent activity on a range of tumors including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), colorectal cancer and appendicular cancer. Additionally, other clinical and non-clinical data suggest that BXQ-350 has activity in chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.
