About Achelois Pharmaceuticals

Cancer causes terrible human pain and suffering and, ultimately, loss of life. Despite exponential increases in knowledge and investment since the declaration of war on cancer in 1970s, only a few drugs brought significant improvements in long-term survival for cancer patients. At Achelois, we reexamine prevailing fundamental assumptions of cancer drug development and aim to develop potent and nontoxic therapeutics that will ultimately enable effective, personalized treatment of cancer.
