It contains a fragment of the target protein RhoC, which is overexpressed in cells with metastatic potential in various cancers.

Industry outlook

Metastatic cancer is the most advanced stage of cancer and forms the bulk of the current prostate cancer therapy market. RhoVac’s target group is focused on non-metastatic patients with biochemical failure and patients in this group are several times more prevalent than metastatic patients. Preventing or halting metastasis formation in this group of patients by inhibiting the metastatic cascade or killing cells with metastatic potential could reduce morbidity and improve survival.
