About metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC)

mCRPC is an advanced form of prostate cancer and the fourth most common cause of cancer death overall. mCRPC is not amenable to surgical treatment and resistant to androgen deprivation therapy, a hormone therapy used as initial disease management to reduce growth of prostate cancer cells.

About ModraDoc006/r

ModraDoc006/r is a proprietary boosted taxane therapy based on docetaxel, an intravenously administered therapy, that is very broadly used in a variety of tumor types. ModraDoc006 – an oral docetaxel tablet – is given in combination with ritonavir (r), which acts as a booster to increase the systemic bioavailability of ModraDoc006. ModraDoc006/r is designed to combine the convenience and practicality of taking chemotherapy treatment at home with the potential for an improved safety profile, as compared to standard IV docetaxel.

Modra Pharmaceuticals aims to transform taxane therapy by developing therapies that are less toxic, more effective and can be taken at home in tablet form. The Company’s goal is to dramatically improve the therapeutic outcomes and everyday lives of the hundreds of thousands of cancer patients undergoing taxane therapy worldwide. Modra’s lead program completed a Phase 2b clinical study in prostate cancer, resulting in positive date further supporting the delivery, bioavailability and tolerability of its novel approach.
