Aragon’s recent discoveries show that the biology of hormone resistant cancers can be overcome through the creation of a new class of nuclear receptor targeting drugs, opening the door to a pipeline of new anti-endocrine therapies. The Company’s approach will produce drugs that are mechanistically distinct from therapies that are either in the clinic or currently being developed.
