PHOENIX, AZ, November 19, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Kalos Therapeutics, Inc. is a biomedical company developing a class of therapeutic peptides to fight cancer. These peptides have already shown significant clinical activity in cardiovascular, cancer and veterinary indications. Kalos' drugs replicate a natural, anti-proliferative activity by disrupting tubulin activity.
Our lead drug candidate, KTH-222, is a safe, non-toxic drug which may be used as 1) a front-line therapy, 2) a long-term maintenance therapy or 3) a co-therapy which reduces time to chemo resistance and minimizes chemo side-effects. KTH-222 reduces tumor size while addressing complications, such as metastasis, thereby, allowing the patient to maintain a quality of life not seen with chemo therapy treatments alone.
Initial cancer markets include: pancreatic, ovarian, prostate, lung and liver. An animal division will develop drugs for the treatment of cancer and renal disease, congestive heart failure and epistaxis.
