ZIOPHARM Oncology is a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development and commercialization of a diverse portfolio of cancer drugs. The Company is currently focused on the development of three clinical programs for multiple indications. Palifosfamide (ZIO-201) is a novel molecule that is the functional active metabolite of ifosfamide, a standard of care for treating sarcoma, testicular cancer, lymphoma and other cancers. Palifosfamide delivers only the cancer fighting component of ifosfamide. It overcomes the resistance of ifosfamide and cyclophosphamide in certain cancers. It does not have the toxic metabolites that cause the debilitating side effects of “fuzzy brain” (encephalopathy) and severe bladder inflammation. Indibulin (ZIO-301) is a novel, oral tubulin binding agent that targets both mitosis and cancer cell migration. Indibulin has several potential benefits, including oral dosing, application in multi-drug resistant tumors, no neuropathy and minimal overall toxicity. Indibulin has shown early activity in many types of solid tumors. Darinaparsin (ZIO-101) is a novel organic arsenic being developed for the treatment of various hematologic and solid cancers. Studies demonstrate that darinaparsin is less toxic and more active in treating cancer than FDA-approved inorganic arsenic. The study that is farthest along is in lymphoma. ZIOPHARM’s operations are located in Boston, MA with an executive office in New York.
