Ascenta Therapeutics is a privately-held, clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to discovering and developing new medicines to stop cancer. Our core technology consists of agents designed to re-establish the natural program of apoptosis (cell death) in abnormal cancer cells. We have a compound in Phase IIb cancer clinical trials that inhibits the Bcl-2 family of proteins (Bcl-2, Bcl-xL, Bcl-w, and Mcl-1) and a pipeline that targets HDM2 (inhibitor of the p53 tumor suppressor protein) and XIAP (inhibitors of apoptosis proteins).
