4SC at a glance
Drugs for the treatment of cancer
Headquartered in Planegg-Martinsried near Munich/Germany, 4SC is an innovative biopharmaceutical company with a strong focus on clinical development. We develop targeted small molecule drugs with an epigenetic mode of action for the treatment of cancer in indications with a high unmet medical need and major economic potential.
In doing so, we wish to offer affected patients treatment options that are more effective and better tolerated to provide a better quality of life and create value for our shareholders, partners and employees.
Our focus: Epigenetics, cancer stem cells and cancer immunotherapy
Our product pipeline comprises promising drug programs at various stages of clinical development, as well as early-stage research projects. We are focusing on fields of research with an especially promising future – such as
and other, important cell communication patterns that contribute to the development and persistence of cancer.
Through development and marketing partnerships with pharmaceutical and biotech companies, we are bringing our programs closer to market approval, thus ensuring commercial success. Eventually, we will also market and sell approved drugs in select territories on our own.
