About TVB-2640
TVB-2640 is an oral, proprietary fatty acid synthase (FASN) inhibitor being evaluated for the treatment of solid tumors. FASN, an enzyme responsible for the synthesis of palmitic acid (palmitate), plays a key role in tumor metabolism, lipid signaling and tumor cell survival. FASN over-expression is associated with aggressive disease and poor prognosis in a number of solid tumors. TVB-2640 is the first FASN inhibitor to enter human clinical trials.

About 3-V Biosciences
3-V Biosciences, Inc. is discovering and developing therapeutics that modulate key pathways in oncology and infectious diseases. In oncology, the company's lead candidate is a fatty acid synthase (FASN) inhibitor that has been shown to block tumor cell signaling pathways and induce tumor cell apoptosis. 3-V's antiviral therapeutics have demonstrated the ability to block host-pathogen interactions, resulting in robust and broad-spectrum in vitro and in vivo antiviral activity, including efficacy against viruses resistant to other classes of antiviral drugs, and a high barrier to resistance. The 3-V team applies an integrated approach, leveraging internal expertise in biology, medicinal chemistry, drug discovery and development to drive programs forward. The company is located in Menlo Park, California.
