Rexahn’s goal is to be a world leader in the discovery and development of new drugs to treat cancer. By developing compounds which specifically target cancer cells, excluding healthy tissue, Rexahn’s drug candidates may demonstrate increased efficacy and reduced toxicity- efficacy against multiple drug resistant cancer cells and synergism with existing cytotoxic compounds. Utilizing a powerful, multi-faceted discovery engine consisting of small signaling molecule discovery, computational modeling, nanotechnology-based drug targeting and delivery, we believe that we are well on our way to achieving our goal.

Rexahn’s core scientific expertise in the understanding of signal transduction processes involved in cancer cell growth is producing a drug portfolio with significant potential clinical value.

Today, our clinical development pipeline consists of three novel compounds:

Archexin® (Phase IIa) a best-in-class compound that blocks both the activated and native forms of Akt1 and has FDA orphan drug designation for the treatment of pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, stomach cancer, RCC, and glioblastoma.

RX-3117 (Phase I) a best-in-class compound that inhibits DNA and RNA synthesis, and exhibits high oral bioavailability. In comparison, RX-3117 may have a better safety profile than gemcitabine, the current first-line therapy for pancreatic and other cancers.

SupinoxinTM (RX-5902) (Phase I) a first-in-class small molecule that inhibits the phosphorylated p68 RNA helicase, a protein that plays a key role in cancer growth, progression and metastasis.

These lead clinical drugs are part of a growing oncology drug pipeline that consists of highly differentiated and exciting anti-cancer compounds.

Our strategy is to continue building a significant product pipeline of innovative medicines that we will commercialize on our own or with other pharmaceutical partners. Rexahn’s powerful discovery engine and differentiated product pipeline provide the opportunity for a high value generating biopharmaceutical company- one with the expertise to develop cures for significant diseases of our time.
