Blaze Bioscience is developing technology to facilitate surgery for cancer patients. Blaze’s mission is to make the detection, removal and treatment of all cancers sensitive, reliable and accessible. To achieve this, Blaze is using their Cystine-dense miniproteins (CDPs) discovery platform that searches for miniprotein structures with high specificity, ultrastability and scaffold diversity for binding a wide range of therapeutic targets. While CDPs are in research phase, Blaze is also pioneering their Tumor Paint Technology including their first product, BLZ-100, a drug that attaches to tumor tissue and fluoresces when a special light from the Canvas is shined on it. This enables surgeons to visualize the outer edges of a tumor as they operate.
