ABOUT THE COMPANY:

Advanced Proteome Therapeutics Corporation is developing a proprietary technology to directly target cancerous tumors and avoid destroying normal cells.  This type of agent is capable of greater potency, higher specificity and lower toxicity than other therapies that can also attack healthy cells.  The Company is working to streamline the process by which these agents are prepared, which to date, has been extremely cumbersome, limiting their potential.
