Celator Pharmaceuticals, Inc., with locations in Princeton, NJ, and Vancouver, BC, is a privately held pharmaceutical company developing new and more effective therapies to treat cancer. CombiPlex®, the company's drug ratio technology platform, represents a revolutionary new approach to the development of combination therapies based on identifying a fixed, synergistic ratio of the drugs pre-clinically, incorporating that ratio in a drug delivery vehicle and maintaining the ratio in patients. The company pipeline includes: CPX-1 (a liposomal formulation of irinotecan:floxuridine), currently in a Phase 2 trial in patients with colorectal cancer; CPX-351 (a liposomal formulation of cytarabine:daunorubicin), currently in a Phase 1 trial in patients with advanced leukemia; CPX 571 (a liposomal formulation of irinotecan:cisplatin), a preclinical stage compound; and multiple research programs. Based on the applications of CombiPlex, Celator is positioned to advance a broad pipeline of combination therapies involving both previously approved and novel drug agents.
