Tyrogenex is studyingX-82, a VEGFR/PGDFR/CSF-1R dual kinase inhibitor, in different types of solid tumors as part of a combination therapy regimen.
Combination Trial with Docetaxel in Solid Tumors
With the University of Wisconsin as the sponsor, Tyrogenex is studying X-82 in a phase 1 trial to evaluate side effects and how well sequential dosing of X-82 and docetaxel works in treating patients with solid tumors.
X-82 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.

Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor & Renal Cell Carcinoma Trial
In partnership with Washington University School of Medicine, Tyrogenex is conducting a phase 1/2 trial to evaluate the combination of X-82 with everolimus in the treatment of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors and renal cell carcinoma.
