Long description:

Cyteir Therapeutics is using the principle of synthetic lethality to develop cancer therapies. Synthetic lethality is a mechanism used to exploit weaknesses in cancer cells that are not present in healthy cells - drug treatment therefore kills the cancer cell while having minimal impact on surrounding healthy tissue. Cyteir has used this approach to develop their lead candidate, CYT-0851, an oral investigational drug that inhibits monocarboxylate transporters. By combining treatment with capecitabine and gemcitabine, Cyteir is currently testing CYT-0851 in a Phase ½ trial in patients with advanced ovarian cancer.
