Tensive Controls Inc. Changes Name to Endevica Bio

COLUMBIA, Mo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tensive Controls Inc. (TCI Peptide Therapeutics), a company developing best-in-class peptide drug candidates with better safety and efficacy properties, changed its name to Endevica Bio. This new name reflects the company’s commitment to providing breakthrough technologies in disease areas where no or few alternatives exist.

“Our new name is the first of many milestones we expect to achieve this year,” said Russ Potterfield, Executive Chairman of Endevica Bio. “We expect our first therapeutic candidate, TCMCB07, to move through pre-clinical development to become the first-in-human drug candidate for cancer cachexia. With up to 40% of cancer patients dying from cachexia, we hope to address this major need and save millions of lives.”

Cachexia is also known as “Wasting Syndrome.” It is marked by weight loss, muscle loss, lack of appetite, fatigue and decreased strength. It can be a sign of cancer, as well as AIDS, heart failure, and/or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Cachexia is a serious clinical consequence estimated to be prevalent in approximately 50-80% of those with advanced malignant cancer and it is estimated to be the cause of death for up to 40% of cancer patients.
