Company Summary

Over 570,000 US cancer patients die each year; 90% due to late stage disease. Few treatment options are successful for end stage. Intensity is a pharmaceutical firm creating new chemotherapy to treat solid tumors by direct localized injection. In a mouse model of large pancreatic tumors our approach reduced the number of live cancer cells from baseline with few side effects (IV dosing did not) and is promising for metastatic disease treatment.
