About 2X Oncology
2X Oncology Inc. is a clinical stage precision medicine company developing targeted therapeutics that leverage proprietary Drug Response Predictor (DRP™) technology to address significant unmet needs in women’s cancer. The DRP™ generates a precision mRNA-based companion diagnostic for each compound, enabling the identification of patients that are most likely to respond and benefit from treatment.
The 2X pipeline includes product candidates with potential utility in the treatment of breast, ovarian, and endometrial cancers and primary and secondary brain tumors. These programs have shown clinical efficacy and safety and are positioned to enter focused Phase 2 studies with data expected in 2018.
A Cambridge, MA based spin-out from Oncology Venture ApS, 2X works in close collaboration with Oncology Venture and leverages its Danish registry of over 1,100 cancer patients for initial clinical studies. Learn more at 2xoncology.com.

About Oncology Venture Sweden AB
Oncology Venture Sweden AB is engaged in the research and development of anti-cancer drugs via its wholly owned Danish subsidiary Oncology Venture ApS. Oncology Venture has a license to use Drug Response Prediction – DRP™ – in order to significantly increase the probability of success in clinical trials. DRP™ has proven its ability to provide a statistically significant prediction of clinical outcomes from drug treatment in cancer patients in 29 of the 37 clinical studies that were examined. The Company uses a model that alters the odds in comparison with traditional pharmaceutical development. Instead of treating all patients with a particular type of cancer, patients’ tumors genes are screened first and only those who are most likely to respond to the treatment will be treated. Via a more well-defined patient group, the risk and costs are reduced while the development process becomes more efficient.
The current product portfolio: LiPlaCis for Breast Cancer, Irofulven developed from a fungus for prostate cancer and APO010 – an immuno-oncology product for Multiple Myeloma.
Oncology Venture has spun out two companies in Special Purpose Vehicles: 2X Oncology Inc. a US based company focusing on Precision medicine for women’s cancers with a pipeline of three promising phase 2 product candidates and Danish OV-SPV 2 will test and potentially develop an oral phase 2 Tyrosine Kinase inhibitor.
