Epi-C’s goal is to modulate the complex mechanism of epigenetic regulation, forcing cancer cells to restore physiological activity and die either for senescence or programmed death – apoptosis .
In addition, since epigenetic mechanism(s) modulate both the induction and the interference with cell death, Epi-C’s molecules might be applied to degenerative diseases, as well as chronic, metabolic alterations.
Epi-C is a Drug-Agent
specialized in the discovery phase of new molecules
Epi-C (Epigenetic Compounds) is a new spin-off biotech company operating in the field of epigenetics. One of our primary aims is to develop novel drugs with anti-cancer properties.
Epi-C performs small molecule screenings, as well as bio logical and molecular characterisation of drugs.
