About the Company

We are working on the development of "Next Generation Cancer Therapeutics" by gene therapy using Reduced Expression in Immortalized Cell (REIC) gene which was discovered at Okayama University.

Brief Description of main products or services

Although the REIC gene is expressed vigorously in normal cells, its expression is reduced when cells turn into cancer cells. It is revealed that forced expression of the REIC gene in cancer cells causes selective cancer cell death (apoptosis) and cancer immunity activation. We manufactured a drug "Ad-REIC formulation", using adenovirus as a vector, that carries the REIC gene to cancer cells. More than 80 cancer patients have been administered the formulation in clinical trials and symptoms of a cold such as a temporary fever caused by adenovirus are the only side effects reported. At the same time, high efficacy against cancer has been confirmed.
