Ceplene, Maxim's lead drug candidate, is an immune-modulator that reverses immune suppression and protects critical immune cells. Because Ceplene modifies basic immune functions, it has the potential to be used in a range of diseases.

Ceplene and the apoptosis compounds are investigational drugs and have not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or any international regulatory agency.
