Andes Biotechnologies is a leading nucleic acid-based drug discovery and development company focused on solid tumor cancers. The Company has discovered two novel families of long non-coding RNAs: sense (S-RNA) and antisense (AS-RNA). Both are present in all human cells, are synthesized in the mitochondria and migrate to the nucleus. The proprietary technology developed by Andes Biotechnologies is based on oligonucleotide drugs that target the novel long non-coding regulatory RNAs in tumor cells inducing apoptosis. Andes Biotechnologies has an active investigational new drug (IND) application in the United States and is currently engaged in the clinical development of its lead drug Andes-1537. Andes Biotechnologies is supported by a proven and experienced management team, a robust network of key national and international collaborators in the cancer field, and has an extensive intellectual property portfolio. Andes Biotechnologies was founded in 2008 and is located in Santiago, Chile.
