Race's first important asset is a chemotherapy drug called Bisantrene which was the subject of more than 40 phase II clinical studies before it was lost in a series of pharmaceutical mergers during the 1990s. Race Oncology has rediscovered Bisantrene and we plan to put this valuable drug back in the hands of clinicians to treat Leukaemia.
In the United States, Race owns two granted patents on Bisantrene and has secured Orphan Drug designation and Rare Paediatric Disease designation. Our goal is to complete clinical development and gain approval by the US FDA.
