Lead drug ST-001 nanoFenretinide

SciTech Development, LLC, is a clinical stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on novel, advanced drug delivery mechanisms for use with cancer therapeutics. SciTech’s patented and differentiated drug delivery system, SDV, is a proprietary intravenous, phospholipid-based, nanoparticle product. SDV enables drug assets, such as fenretinide, that are water insoluble, to be distributed through the circulatory system in sufficient quantities and doses to reach the target cells and produce a therapeutic effect while maintaining low toxicity levels. Fenretinide, the first asset that SciTech is combining with SDV, is the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in SciTech's lead drug ST-001 nanoFenretinide.

The U.S. FDA has recently accepted SciTech’s Investigational New Drug Application (IND) for ST-001 nanoFenretinide treatment of T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Additionally, the FDA has granted Orphan Drug Designation status for ST-001 in the treatment of two types of NHL: peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). Solid preclinical and clinical data makes the case for the use of fenretinide in the treatment of additional blood disorders and solid tumors such as small cell lung, breast, pancreatic, neuroblastoma and other cancers.

SciTech has recently submitted a proposal to the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) of the U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) for the use of its lead drug product ST-001 nanoFenretinide in the treatment of patients infected with COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). Fenretinide has demonstrated in-vitro antiviral activity against a number of viruses including MERS, Dengue, Zika, West Nile, HIV, and HCV.
