About RGX-202

RGX-202 is a small molecule that inhibits a novel cancer metabolism
pathway involved in supplying energy to cancer cells. The target of
RGX-202, SLC6a8, is over-expressed in several prevalent cancer types,
including gastrointestinal malignancies. RGX-202 has demonstrated
anti-tumor activity in pre-clinical studies, both as a single agent as
well as in combination with standard-of-care therapies. IND-enabling
studies for RGX-202 have been completed in preparation for clinical
