Valirx Plc is an oncology-focussed Biopharmaceutical Company, developing treatments and diagnostics. Technologies are selected by using rigorous clinical and commercial processes to address unmet market needs. Clinical lead product is VAL201, a peptide for prostate cancer with follow-on indications in ovarian and breast cancers and endometriosis. Product VAL401, is a small molecule reformulation for lung cancers.
The Company’s proprietary technology platform, GeneICE, enables selective silencing of rebellious genes’ inappropriate activity. VAL101, the first GeneICE therapeutic, targets and reduces expression of Bcl-2, implicated in about half of cancers. GeneICE extension to neurology and inflammatory diseases will follow.
A novel diagnostic, the Nav3 system, detects pre-cancerous, cancerous and metastatic cells in tissue samples even before a tumour forms; indicating potential malignant formation.
The Shares event offers a unique opportunity to hear about the latest plans and strategy from the Directors of UK listed companies and Fund Managers, attendees can personally put forward questions to the presenters.
