About GenSpera

GenSpera, Inc. is a development stage oncology company focused on therapeutics that deliver a potent, unique and patented drug directly to tumors. GenSpera’s technology platform combines a potent cytotoxin (12ADT) with a pro-drug delivery system that activates the drug only within the tumor. Unlike standard cancer drugs, plant-derived 12ADT kills cells independent of their division rate, thus making it effective at killing all fast- and slow-growing cancers and cancer stem cells. GenSpera’s pro-drug platform is the subject of seven issued patents with three additional patents pending.

GenSpera initiated a Phase I cancer trial with its lead drug, G-202, early in the first quarter of 2010. G-202 targets the established blood vessels that nourish solid tumors, thus destroying the tumor’s blood supply. This is a dramatic improvement upon anti-angiogenic drugs that primarily only stop the growth of new blood vessels. Upon completion of its Phase I trial, GenSpera expects to initiate multiple Phase II trials for G-202 in several different cancer types. The company’s second drug, G-115, will directly target prostate cancer.

GenSpera, Inc. owns and controls all rights to G-202 and G-115 and anticipates a strategic partnership to maximize the value of the drugs as they progress through future clinical trials.
