About GP-2250

GP-2250 is a highly selective yet broadly active cancer therapeutic with a unique mechanism of action that suppresses cancer by disrupting its energy metabolism, leading to cancer cell death through a number of validated mechanisms. It also impacts nuclear factor-κB (“NFκB”) which effects cancer cells’ ability for protein synthesis and DNA transcription thereby restricting cancer cell growth and proliferation.

Mechanism of Action

Novel, proprietary, transformative.

GP-2250 is a tumor cell selective and broadly active small molecule with a unique dual mechanism of action of selectively disrupting the energy metabolism of cancer cells leading to cancer cell death as well as impacting nuclear factor-κB (“NFκB”) which effects cancer cells’ ability for protein synthesis and DNA transcription thereby restricting cancer cell growth and proliferation.

Normal cells and cancer cells generate energy differently. GP-2250 takes advantage of that difference.

GP-2250 decreases GAPDH and hexokinase, the enzyme that controls aerobic glycolysis, a key process in cancer cells’ ability to produce metabolic energy.

Together, the reduction of these two vital enzymes causes a significant decrease in ATP, the cell’s energy carrier, resulting in oxidative, metabolic, and hypoxic stresses on the cancer cell.

In addition, GP-2250’s reduction of the transcription factor and tumor promotor NFkB results in anti-inflammatory, anti-angiogenic, and immuno-permissive activity.

Broad applicability, intentional focus.

While GP-2250 has demonstrated broad utility across a number of indications and therapeutic uses in preclinical and Phase 1 clinical studies, including where inflammatory cytokine suppression could be of therapeutic value, we have chosen to focus on the treatment of pancreatic and ovarian cancers as our initial indications, two conditions with a clear unmet need. Early clinical experience is promising.
