About RXi Pharmaceuticals

RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (OTC: RXII) is a biotechnology company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing innovative therapies based on its proprietary, next-generation RNAi platform.  Therapeutics that use RNA interference, or "RNAi," have great promise because of their ability to "silence," or down-regulate, the expression of a specific gene that may be overexpressed in a disease condition.  Building on the pioneering work of scientific founder and Nobel Laureate Dr. Craig Mello, RXi's first RNAi product candidate, RXI-109, entered into RXi's first human clinical trial in 2012.  RXI-109 targets connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), a key regulatory of fibrosis and scar formation, and is initially being developed to reduce or inhibit scar formation in the skin following surgery.


RXi Pharmaceuticals Corp., has received patent approval for their new experimental breast cancer vaccine which became part of the company's arsenal after acquiring Apthera Inc. in April of this year.
The specific patents in question regard using the vaccine NeuVax with the drug Herceptin which is used in women to slow the production of the HER2 protein in tumors, while NeuVax attempts to make the body's immune system fight off cancerous cells.
According to The Telegram:
"The patents also cover using NeuVax in patients not eligible for Herceptin treatment."
With their patent in place the company plans to begin human tests in early 2012.
According to RXi the patents were developed by Dr. George E. Peoples, director of the Cancer Vaccine Development Program for the U.S. Military Cancer Institute and RXi is leasing the patents for their own work.


This May, RXi Pharmaceuticals Corp. observed two momentous events: The biotechnology company completed its spinoff from Galena Biopharma Inc., and Dr. Geert Cauwenbergh took the helm as president and chief executive officer. The small company's first product, an anti-scarring medication called RXI-109, entered clinical trials this year, and is based on the pioneering work in RNA interference of RXi scientific founder and Nobel Laureate Dr. Craig C. Mello. Dr. Cauwenbergh came to RXi after a long career in pharmaceuticals, most recently as president and chief executive officer of a company he founded, Barrier Therapeutics. What attracted you to come to Worcester? "It was the technology, well, the technology and the chemistry with these people. They're very bright." As a publicly traded company, how do you reconcile the needs of the investors, which are sometimes a short-term desire for profits, with the needs of medical research, which sometimes takes years? "Through business development. Basically what you do as a small biotech is you try to create a big network with people who have interest in various stages of development. ... In two or three years they get antsy and they want to cash in, but at that point in time there will be and there is already a network of business development contacts in place where you can for instance get nondiluted money without having to raise money and go back to the stock market and shareholders by making regional deals or geographic deals ...
