About the company
Tiltan Pharma Ltd, an Israeli company jointly owned by Yissum (Technology transfer Company of the Hebrew University), the entrepreneurs, Israeli investors and a Canadian corporation, is dedicated to the development and commercialization of its proprietary anti-angiogenic platform for treatment of cancer and other indications.
TL-118 is a proprietary anti-angiogenic therapy aiming to starve the tumor by cutting off its blood supply.
The product represents an innovative approach to use known molecules for this indication, thereby shorten time to market and risks of development.
A recent study conducted by an independent researcher and published in the British Journal of Cancer, showed superiority of TL-118 over current standard of care anti-angiogenic agents: http://tiltanpharma.com/var/968/3032-bjc2012322a.pdf
Over 150 cancer patients were exposed to TL-118 so far with excellent safety and tolerability and good signs of efficacy.
The company was granted a US-FDA IND and a recent safety report showed the product is safe and well tolerated.
Tiltan's product, TL-118, is protected by a composition of matter patent already granted in the US, Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan, China and Israel.
The company' next milestone is the completion of its phase-II pancreatic cancer study conducted in parallel in the US and Israel.
