SciTech Development is a clinical-stage, pharmaceutical company that has developed a patented, proprietary drug delivery “platform” that enables the optimization of intravenous delivery and cellular penetration of water-insoluble drugs. ST-001 is the first drug asset utilizing this transformative delivery approach. Fenretinide has been shown in 3000 patients, to be a safe/effective anticancer therapy. Fenretinide demonstrated antiviral and immunomodulatory impact on three virus types.
