Egenix is a privately held, New York-based biotechnology company focused on the development of innovative cancer therapeutics. The company’s therapeutic platform technology consists of small molecule drugs applicable for the treatment and prevention of a broad spectrum of cancers, and neurological disorders, i.e. autism. Our lead drug candidates inhibit the “translation initiation factor” eIF4E, specifically blocking production of multiple cancer promoting proteins and promoting apoptosis (programmed cell death) and upregulation of tumor suppressor genes. The company licensed this technology from Harvard Medical School in 2007. eIF4E is an attractive cancer therapeutic target because every function necessary for cancer growth and metastasis is influenced or mediated by a gene product that is regulated by this translation initiation factor.
