INT230-6 is a novel drug product formulation able to diffuse into cancer cells. Using in vivo preclinical models of severe cancer, INT230-6 treatment results in substantial improvement in survival with large tumors in some animals being completely cleared. Complete responders appear to be protected long term from recurrence of cancer. INT230-6 administration has shown an increased recruitment of immune cells to the tumor.
