FAKnostics Cancer Therapeutics Program
Cancer-selective cyclic peptides with high efficacy and safety that inhibit cancer progression
Our proprietary hydrocarbon-stapled peptides effectively block the FAK FAT domain, offering a promising avenue for cancer treatment. These peptides possess remarkable properties, including enhanced alpha helicity, permeability, binding affinity, proteolytic resistance, and pharmacokinetic characteristics.
Targeting the FAK FAT Domain
Unlike traditional methods that target the kinase domain, we prioritize the FAK FAT domain due to its high sequence specificity and critical role regulating the focal adhesion complex, cancer metastasis, and apoptosis.
Our patented first-in-class FAK FAT inhibitors have a unique mechanism of action, creating drugs with higher anti-tumor efficacy, higher specificity, and lower toxicity compared to 1st generation FAK inhibitors.
