Precise solutions to tackle hard to treat diseases
Starting with cancer, PROSION Therapeutics is able to target various hard-to-treat diseases by unlocking so far “undruggable” proteins.
PROSION developed a first-in-class approach to address so far undruggable pharmaceutical targets that are linked with various hard-to-treat diseases through a disruptive platform of chemical building blocks called ProMs.
ProMs can in fact be combined to form the world’s first small molecule drugs for a very abundant class of “undruggables”, namely proline-rich-motif (PRM) binding targets.
These targets are known to play key-roles in a multitude of pathologies, e.g. cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular diseases, immune-meditated disorders, etc.
The potential of the ProM-platform has already been validated in a first POC targeting a particularly difficult oncological PRM-binding target.
As a proof-of-concept, PROSION developed highly selective ProM-based inhibitors for a particularly difficult drug target that plays a key role in both, breast and pancreatic cancer metastasis – thereby, identifying the currently only reported (and patented) small molecule inhibitor of PRM-recognizing targets.
