Welcome to SuviCa, Inc.
SuviCa, Inc. is focused on the discovery and development of small molecules for the treatment of cancer.
Founded in 2010, Suvica, Inc. is focused on the discovery and development of small molecule cancer therapeutics targeting a unique mechanism of action. (see Our Technology).
Currently, SuviCa has a small molecule protein synthesis inhibitor in pre-clinical development.
Current cancer therapeutics consist mostly of DNA damaging agents, nucleotide analogs, topoisomerase inhibitors, microtubule poisons, and targeted agents such as kinase inhibitors. Frequently, mono-therapy with these agents does not provide sufficient benefit or patients may develop resistance over time, therefore combination regimens are needed. SuviCa’s compounds target an under-exploited cellular mechanism that is critical for cancer re-growth after treatment with these standard cancer therapies, providing opportunities for new treatment combinations.Read more
