Institut Curie: Behind the technology and institutional co-founder

 

TECHNOLOGY

The company's first lead product, the ironomycin, is a chemical molecule, highly active in vitro and in vivo. This molecule quantitatively accumulates in lysosomes of persistent cancer cells. There, ironomycin sequesters iron, involved in the maintenance of persistent cancer cell and provokes cell death. The process of ironomycin manufacturing consists of two steps of chemical modifications and is a huge competitive advantage regardless the immunotherapy strategies (i.e. CAR-T).

 

APPLICATIONS

SideROS aims to improve the conditions of patients affected by life-threatening diseases lacking of effective treatment.
