Iterion Therapeutics Lands $17M Series B
HOUSTON, TX, Iterion Therapeutics has raised $17 million in a Series B financing.
Iterion Therapeutics, ("Iterion"), a venture-backed, clinical stage biotechnology company developing novel cancer therapeutics, announced today that it has raised $17 million in a Series B financing led by Lumira Ventures, with the participation of existing investors, including SantÃ© Ventures, as well as new investors Venture Investors, GPG Ventures, and Viva BioInnovator.
Iterion Therapeutics is a venture-backed, clinical stage biotechnology company developing novel cancer therapeutics. The company's lead product, Tegavivint, is a potent and selective inhibitor of nuclear beta-catenin, a historically "undruggable" oncology target implicated in cell proliferation, differentiation, immune evasion and stem cell renewal. Research demonstrating potent anti-tumor activity in a broad range of pre-clinical models indicate that Tegavivint has the potential for clinical utility in multiple cancer types. Tegavivint is currently the subject of a Phase 1/2a clinical trial in patients with progressive desmoid tumors. Iterion is also pursuing clinical programs in additional cancers where nuclear beta-catenin signaling has been shown to play a role, including acute myeloid leukemia (AML), non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and pediatric cancers, including sarcomas, lymphoma and other solid tumors. Iterion is the recipient of an up to $15.9 million Product Development Award from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT).
