TZOFEN biological therapeutics
TZOFEN biological therapeutics

At Tzofen we are developing the next generation of cancer treatment – focused initially on rare diseases - using genetically engineered viruses to destroy cancer cells, ultimately eliminating tumors with minimal side effects. Early results from mice trials revealed success in both preventing tumor growth as well as complete clearance of the tumor in all the mice treated. Equally important, our unique genetically engineered viruses are safe to use and do not harm healthy tissue.
