About Captor Therapeutics
Captor Therapeutics S.A. is a rapidly growing European biopharmaceutical company with principal operations in Wrocław, Poland. The Company operates in state-of the-art laboratories in the Wrocław Technology Park. Captor is also present in the Swiss Innovation Park, Allschwil, close to Basel, with its subsidiary Captor Therapeutics GmbH.
Captor Therapeutics focuses on the discovery and development of breakthrough drug candidates in diseases with high levels of unmet medical need using Targeted Protein Degradation (TPD). TPD is a revolutionary approach to finding new drugs that can address totally new molecular targets, currently not addressable using classical drugs, as well as improving the treatment options for diseases where existing drugs fail to prove optimal treatment. Captor is conducting, among others, five research and development projects aimed at developing drug candidates for the treatment of undertreated severe conditions, including malignancies and autoimmune diseases.
Captor recently launched a new research and development collaboration with the Japanese company Sosei Heptares combining Captor’s proprietary TPD platform with Sosei Heptares’ expertise and technology in a specific family of drug targets called GPCRs.
TPD technology is a transformational breakthrough because of its potential to target any protein, including proteins considered to be therapeutically un-targetable (undruggable Proteome). Captor Therapeutics is the European leader in TPD technology.
Captor Therapeutics currently has five R&D projects at the preclinical stage (four of which are at the lead optimisation phase).
The Company successfully closed the initial public offering of its shares in April 2021 and is listed on Warsaw Stock Exchange.
