Q-122 for the treatment of hot flashes in breast cancer patients.
QUE Oncology’s lead asset is Q-122. It is currently being developed for the treatment of hot flashes in women diagnosed with breast cancer who are receiving hormonal therapy. Q-122 is an orally available small molecule that has been investigated in several in vitro and in vivo pharmacology studies. The clinical results have shown that Q-122 has an excellent safety profile and warrants the need for further clinical studies to assess the efficacy of the drug in the treatment of hot flashes.
Cancer is a leading cause of death. In 2012, an estimated 14.1 million cancer cases occurred worldwide. By 2035, it is estimated that 24 million cancer cases will occur on an annual basis. Although advances in the management of cancer occur frequently, there are still a number of types of cancer for which there is no, or minimally, effective therapy. Also, side effects from cancer treatment often affect the utility of the treatment or the patient’s quality of life.
