TetraLogic Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: TLOG) is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, acquiring and developing novel product candidates to treat cancer and infectious diseases. We currently have two clinical-stage product candidates in development: birinapant and suberohydroxamic acid (4-methoxycarbonyl) phenyl ester (SHAPE).
Birinapant is designed to mimic the activity of an endogenous protein, the Second Mitochondrial Activator of Caspases, or SMAC, which is involved in the regulation of the apoptotic process within cells. Avoidance of apoptosis is a critical step in cancer tumor development and certain infectious diseases.
SHAPE is a histone deacetylase inhibitor, or HDACi. Altered expression of histone deacetylases, or HDACs, has been linked to tumor development and several drugs approved for systemic use in the treatment of cancers take advantage of this mechanism. www.tetralogicpharma.com
