Business Description

Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (IPI) is a drug discovery and development company. The Company's lead product candidate, IPI-504 (retaspimycin hydrochloride), is an intravenously administered small molecule inhibitor of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90). Hsp90 is a central component of the cellular chaperone system-a system that supports and stabilizes cancer-causing proteins, such as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), enabling multiple forms of cancer to thrive. Inhibition of the Hsp90 chaperone knocks out this critical source of support for cancer cells, leading to tumor growth inhibition and cancer cell death.
