First-in-class novel approach for targeting oncogenic proteins

 

At Nynex Therapeutics, we utilize a novel strategy to design first-in-class therapeutics to target previously difficult to inhibit oncogenic proteins. By designing inhibitors of deubiquitinating proteases (DUBs), we aim to create drugs that are able to specifically increase degradation of known cancer pro-survival proteins such as MCL-1 and ETS-1,  key anti-apoptotic and pro-proliferative proteins upregulated in many tumors.  If successful, this novel class of anticancer agents will one of the first therapeutics to target DUBs.
