EvoRx strives to discover and develop innovative peptide therapeutic and targeted radiopharmaceuticals for treatment and diagnosis of disease with high unmet medical need. It’s proprietary Evo-Link™ technology rapidly generates exceedingly high diversity cyclic peptide libraries. The libraries are screened for drug-like activity in environments that mimic the physiological environment of the body. This results in EvoTides™, uniquely structured peptides that are highly stable in human serum, have antibody-like specificity and affinity, and can be designed to be membrane permeable. These features allow us to target protein interactions previously thought of as “undruggable.”

EvoRx Technologies Inc. is awarded a Phase I SBIR contract from the National Cancer Institute

PASADENA, California, September 20, 2013. EvoRx Technologies, Inc., announced today that the company has been awarded a $249,748 Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract from the National Cancer Institute (NCI)/National Institutes of Health (NIH). The project, entitled “Novel Imaging Agents to Expand the Clinical Tool Kit for Cancer,” will support the development of a next generation radiopharmaceutical in collaboration with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

“We suspect that our EvoTides will have tumor uptake and systemic clearance properties that are far superior than antibodies for the development of radiopharmaceuticals for therapy and imaging,” said Dr. Stephen Fiacco, CEO of EvoRx. “I’m excited to test our theory.”
