  • Additional Information/Comments:Zenith Epigenetics is a clinical stage biotechnology company with a broad and deep drug discovery platform in epigenetics, developing orally active, small molecules that are selective for inhibition of BET bromodomains. This platform integrates structural biology, modeling, medicinal chemistry with biochemical and cell-based assays to discover potent compounds which are then further evaluated for desirable pharmaceutical properties, including oral bioavailability, and in animal models of disease. Through ongoing discovery activities we are continuing to secure intellectual property around novel compounds and their analogs. Our lead product, a pan selective BET inhibitor, is in clinical development for treatment of solid tumors, including prostate cancer.
