"NOV-002, a Mimetic of Glutathione Disulfide"
NOV-002 is the subject of an ongoing pivotal Phase 3 trial for non-small cell lung cancer under a Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) and Fast Track, having also demonstrated positive results in Phase 2 trials for other oncology indications.
"We are very pleased to have another peer reviewed publication, continuing to establish cellular redox modulation as the fundamental mechanism of action of NOV-002," said Christopher Pazoles, Ph.D., Vice President of Research & Development of Novelos. "This article strengthens the connection between NOV-002 and an emerging literature that has shown redox status to be a key regulator of signal pathway activation, cell proliferation, cytoskeleton changes and other cell functions that may relate to NOV-002's unique therapeutic profile, which is also described in the article."
