Pipeline of first-in-class AXL inhibitors for the treatment of aggressive diseases.
BerGenBio is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing transformative drugs targeting AXL as a potential cornerstone therapy for aggressive diseases, including immune-evasive, therapy resistant cancers, fibrosis and viral infection.
BerGenBio’s lead candidate, bemcentinib, is a once-a-day, oral, highly selective and potent inhibitor of AXL kinase, which has demonstrated a key role in cancer treatment by preventing immune evasion, drug resistance and metastasis in a variety of cancer trials.
Additionally, bemcentinib has been reported to exhibit potent anti-viral activity in preclinical models of infection by enveloped viruses, including Ebola and Zika. Recent data have expanded this to SARS-CoV-2 where findings suggest that bemcentinib stops the virus entering the host cells and neutralising its anti-viral defence mechanisms. BerGenBio is based in Bergen, Norway with a subsidiary in Oxford, UK. The company is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange (OSE:BGBIO).Explore BerGenBio’s pipeline
