Executive Summary

The basis for Inimex's pipeline was born a few years ago when company founders teamed up to investigate small cationic peptides as antimicrobials for the Canadian Bacterial Diseases Network. They found that some cationic peptides didn't kill bacteria, but had the ability to prevent or treat infection in animal models. The trio led a team to concentrate on a unique expression profile that activated innate response without stimulating inflammation, and that research forms the foundation of the company's current portfolio of compounds that selectively boost immunity.

Gloucester Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Two subtypes of T-cell mediated lymphomas have been very difficult to treat using the existing cytotoxic chemotherapy treatments. CTCL and peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) patients receiving chemotherapy may experience severe, dose-limiting toxicities and develop resistance to the therapy. Gloucester Pharmaceuticals Inc. is developing a treatment that potentially is more effective than chemo, the company says, and the National Institutes of Health is backing its development.
