About Us

We are a San Diego-based, late-stage pharmaceutical company focused on building a leading oncology franchise. Our portfolio of drug candidates contains four clinical-stage candidates, including one candidate in an ongoing global registration trial (pracinostat), and another candidate (ME-401) that is entering a Phase 2 clinical trial which we intend to submit to the U.S. Food and Drug administration to support an accelerated approval marketing application. Our drug candidates target different mechanisms critical to overcoming cancer progression and drug resistance:

  • Pracinostat, an oral HDAC inhibitor;
  • ME-401, an oral PI3K delta inhibitor;
  • Voruciclib, an oral CDK inhibitor; and
  • ME-344, a mitochondrial inhibitor targeting the OXPHOS complex.

Our portfolio is built around drug candidates with validated targets and is designed to develop medicines that are: (1) differentiated, (2) address unmet medical needs and (3) deliver improved benefit to patients either as standalone treatments or in combination with other medicines.
