We are a drug discovery company that uses biomarker technology to identify enzyme targets associated with serious common diseases and then designs novel compounds to attack those targets. Our product pipeline is primarily focused on inhibitors of protein phosphatases, used alone and in combination with cytotoxic agents and/or X-ray and immune checkpoint blockers.

Our leading product candidates are the LB-100 series, which consists of novel structures which have the potential to be first in their class and may be useful in treating several types of cancer as well as vascular and metabolic diseases, and the LB-200 series, which may be useful in treating chronic hereditary diseases such as Gaucher’s disease, in addition to cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
