About SciTech Development

SciTech Development, LLC, is a clinical stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on novel, advanced drug delivery mechanisms for use with cancer therapeutics. SciTech's patented and differentiated drug delivery system, SDV, is a proprietary intravenous, phospholipid-based, nanoparticle product. SDV enables drug assets, such as fenretinide, that are water insoluble, to be distributed through the circulatory system in sufficient quantities and doses to reach the target cells and produce a therapeutic effect while maintaining low toxicity levels. In its primary capacity as an oncology drug development company, SciTech's Investigational New Drug Application (IND) for ST-001 treatment of T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) was accepted last December. Additionally, the FDA has granted Orphan Drug Designation status for ST-001 in the treatment of two types of NHL: peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). Solid preclinical and clinical data makes the case for the use of fenretinide in the treatment of additional blood disorders and solid tumors such as small cell lung, breast, pancreatic, neuroblastoma and other cancers. SciTech Development is headquartered in the Metropolitan Detroit Michigan Area with laboratories at the Sinai Hospital BioIncubator in Baltimore Maryland. Information regarding SciTech's nano formulation technology and ST-001 nanoFenretinide drug product is available from SciTech Development, LLC by calling (313) 938-5517 or at https://www.scitechdevelopment.com/.
