Drug Names(s): L-NDDP

Description: Aroplatin is a liposomal formulation of an advanced platinum chemotherapeutic similar to Eloxatin. Aroplatin is designed to overcome the toxicity and drug resistance associated with current platinum-based chemotherapeutics. Research has shown that liposome encapsulation can increase a treatment’s bioavailability, extending the treatment’s effect; help reduce the damaging effects of some drugs on healthy tissues, markedly improving a treatment’s safety profile; and accumulate at the site of a tumor, delivering higher concentrations of the drug to the disease target.

Deal Structure: Aroplatin was originally developed by Aronex.

In 2001, Antigenics acquired Aronex.
