According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. While there have been significant advances in cancer treatment, there is still a great need for effective therapies that can improve outcomes for patients.

Tripod Therapeutics is developing an orally available drug substance that regulates proteasome localization, thus tricking cancer cells and leading them to their death.

The proteasome is a complex of enzymes that breaks down proteins into smaller peptides. It is found in all eukaryotic cells and plays a critical role in the degradation of proteins, and is important for a variety of cellular processes, including the regulation of protein levels and the removal of damaged or misfolded proteins
