About TransCode Therapeutics
TransCode is an emerging RNA oncology company created on the belief that cancer can be defeated through the intelligent design and effective delivery of RNA therapeutics. The Company has created a platform of drug candidates designed to target a variety of tumor types with the objective of significantly improving patient outcomes. The Company’s lead therapeutic candidate, TTX-MC138, targets microRNA-10b, a well-documented biomarker of cancer metastasis, which is believed to cause approximately 90% of all cancer deaths totaling over nine million deaths last year alone. The Company believes that TTX-MC138 has the potential to produce regression without recurrence in a range of cancers, including breast, pancreatic, ovarian and colorectal cancer, glioblastomas and others. Two of the Company’s other drug candidates, TTX-siPDL1 and TTX- siLIN28b, focus on treating tumors by targeting PD-L1 and Lin28b, respectively. The Company is also developing other therapeutic candidates and diagnostic products related to its planned therapeutics business.
