The spreading of cancer is deadly.  It’s time we stop the movement of tumor cells. Killing tumor cells has been the main thrust of research for many decades.  This strategy has yielded some improvements for patients, but for the large majority, drug resistance emerges and disease progression continues.  Once spread throughout the body, there is typically little that modern medicine can do.

Third Coast Therapeutics is a preclinical stage startup leading a paradigm shifting approach to treating cancer. Third Coast Therapeutics develops orally active, small molecule drugs to stop the spread of solid tumors.  Our drugs act in a new way and will be used in combination with traditional cancer killing agents to save lives.
