About VIRACTA THERAPEUTICS INC
Viracta Therapeutics, Inc., formerly Sunesis Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is a precision oncology company. The Company is focused on the development of new medicines targeting virus-associated malignancies. The Company conducts clinical trials for its combination product candidate as a therapy for the treatment of relapsed/refractory Epstein-Barr virus-positive lymphoma. The Company is conducting three clinical trials for its lead product candidate, Nana-val, in EBV+ lymphomas and solid tumors, including a Phase II registrational trial of Nana-val in EBV+ lymphomas. Its lead product candidate is an all-oral combination of nanatinostat. Its development pipeline also includes vecabrutinib, a clinical-stage non-covalent ITK/BTK inhibitor and VRx-510, a preclinical-stage PDK-1 inhibitor. Its novel synthetic lethality approach targets the EBV genome to enable the killing of the tumor cells by inducing the expression of certain viral kinase genes which in-turn activate an antiviral drug.
