Industry outlook

Despite a slew of novel cancer drugs transforming care for many oncology indications, established chemotherapy regimens remain a cornerstone of treatment. Vivesto’s XR-17 technology is applicable to any solubility limited drug, which includes 10–15 different cytostatic agents, and can potentially provide an improved formulation and profile.
