Its lead product candidate, Marqibo (vincristine sulfate liposomes injection), is a targeted Optisome encapsulated formulation product candidate, which is in the development for the treatment of adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The company's product candidates also include Menadione Topical Lotion, a supportive care product candidate that completed Phase 1 clinical trial for the prevention and/or treatment of the skin toxicities associated with the use of epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors, a type of anti-cancer agent used in the treatment of lung, colon, head and neck, pancreatic, and breast cancer; and Brakiva (topotecan liposomes injection), a targeted Optisome encapsulated formulation product candidate for the treatment of metastatic carcinoma of the ovary and small cell lung cancer. In addition, its development stage product consists of Alocrest (vinorelbine liposomes injection), a targeted Optisome encapsulated formulation product candidate for the treatment of solid tumors, such as non-small-cell lung cancer. Optisomal encapsulation is a method of liposomal drug delivery, which is designed to increase tumor targeting and duration of exposure for cell-cycle specific anticancer agents. The company was formerly known as Hana Biosciences, Inc. and changed its name to Talon Therapeutics, Inc. in December 2010. Talon Therapeutics, Inc. was founded in 2002 and is based in San Mateo, California

Menadione Topical Lotion - A Topical Compound for Skin Rash Associated with EGFR Inhibitors. Treatment with EGFR inhibitors such as Tarceva®, Erbitux® and Vectibix® are associated with an acne-form rash involving the face, neck and upper torso in approximately 75% patients. 50% of patients who manifest skin toxicity experience significant discomfort. This results in drug discontinuation or dose reduction in at least 10% and up to 30% of all subjects. Drug delivery is targeted to the normal location of the EGFR-containing skin cells at the dermal/epidermal junction without interfering with EGFR inhibition systemically at the level of the tumor.
