The new money will be used to further develop IRX's cancer and viral disease product platform, including IRX-2 (citoplurikin), its lead candidate for cancer treatment. IRX researchers are developing a therapy that stimulates a coordinated cellular immune response that can enable a patient's own immune system to fight disease. IRX has reported positive mid-stage data and say they plan to launch a late-stage trial.
