DECEMBER 26 2019, NEW YORK – ChemioCare USA Inc. (“ChemioCare” or the “Company”), a biotechnology company focused on transforming standard of care therapeutics, today announced it has changed the name of the Company to Starton Therapeutics, Inc. The name change reflects an evolution from a cancer supportive care company to a company with the potential to address a wide range of therapeutic areas, including hematology and cancer therapeutics beyond chemotherapy.
Pedro Lichtinger, Chairman and CEO comments on the exciting new identity, “In talking with physicians, payers, and the scientific community we have identified numerous breakthrough applications for our patch technology to improve patient outcomes and address significant unmet medical needs. With the many opportunities we continue to uncover for transdermal delivery, we knew we had outgrown our “Chemio” moniker. This rebranding transpires subsequent to the achievement of two substantial development milestones for the Company. The completion of our olanzapine patch human bioavailability study and lenalidomide myeloma model study in late 2019 signal a new direction for Starton.”
The Company expects to launch its new corporate website early January 2020.
