ZIOPHARM Oncology, Inc.
Drug Names(s): ZIO-301, Indibulin
Description: ZIO-301 is a novel anti-cancer agent that binds to tubulin, one of the essential proteins for chromosomal segregation, and targets mitosis like the taxanes and Vinca alkaloids. ZIO-301 binds to a site on tubulin that is different from the taxanes or Vinca alkaloid binding sites. In contrast to taxanes, which stabilize tubulin polymers, indibulin destabilizes tubulin polymerization.
Deal Structure: Indibulin was acquired from Baxter Healthcare.
