NuCana plc (Nasdaq: NCNA)

NuCana is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on significantly improving treatment outcomes for cancer patients by applying its ProTide(TM) technology to transform some of the most widely prescribed chemotherapy agents, nucleoside analogs, into more effective and safer medicines. NuCana's most advanced ProTide candidates, Acelarin® and NUC-3373, are new chemical entities derived from the nucleoside analogs gemcitabine and 5-fluorouracil, respectively, two widely used chemotherapy agents. Acelarin® is currently being evaluated in clinical studies across several solid tumor indications, including ovarian cancer, biliary cancer and pancreatic cancer. NUC-3373 is currently in a Phase 1 study for the potential treatment of a wide range of advanced solid tumor cancers. *
