About Tyme Technologies
Our research and development efforts are based on a proprietary platform technology, for which we retain global IP and commercial rights. Our lead program is SM-88, a proprietary combination drug product. We believe SM-88 is a first-in-class oncology therapy that increases the power of the body’s innate defenses to utilize oxidative stress to kill cancer cells. SM-88 is designed to penetrate only living cancer cells without toxic effects and without involving healthy body tissue. We believe that SM-88’s therapeutic potential is based on its ability to increase the availability of free radicals and promote their entry into cancer cells by stripping the cancer cells of their normal barriers to these toxic electrons. SM-88 is a combination of a proprietary novel molecule with three currently-marketed drugs that are generally considered safe for their already approved indications, which are in areas other than cancer treatment.
