Cantargia is a Swedish biotechnology company that specialises in the development of pharmaceuticals for various types of cancer diseases and autoimmune/inflammatory diseases. Our development programme includes the product candidate CAN04, which is currently in phase IIa clinical studies, as well as our discovery project CANxx. CAN04 is designed to block the cancer cell’s signalling via the interleukin-1 system. Thereby the tumour inflammation, which facilitates the growth of the tumour, can be counteracted. CAN04 is also designed to stimulate the body’s immune system to eliminate cancer cells directly.
