with innovative medicines

Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYCC, NASDAQ: CYCCP) is a biopharmaceutical company developing innovative therapies that target various phases of cell cycle control for the treatment of cancer and other serious diseases.

Our strategy is to build a diversified portfolio of novel drug candidates to address areas of high unmet medical needs.

Our Pipeline

Cyclacel is a pioneer in the field of cell cycle biology. Our vision is to improve patient healthcare by translating cancer biology into medicines. We have three programs in development:

  • A transcriptional regulation program is evaluating lead asset CYC065, a dual inhibitor of cyclin dependent kinases (CDK) 2 and 9, in patients with advanced cancers.
  • A mitosis regulation program is investigating CYC140, a polo-like kinase 1 inhibitor, in cancer patients.
  • A DNA damage response program is evaluating a sequential regimen of sapacitabine and seliciclib, Cyclacel's first generation CDK inhibitor, in patients with BRCA positive, advanced solid cancers.

Our clinical programs are enhanced through collaboration with world renowned cancer research organizations such as MD Anderson Cancer Center and Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
