Curis, Inc. Company Profile

Curis's cancer patients and Sega's gamers might one day have an unlikely hero in common: Sonic the Hedgehog. Drug development firm Curis is studying hedgehog signaling pathways (including the sonic hedgehog pathway, named after the Sega mascot) to find treatments for oncology ailments and other conditions. Such signaling pathways regulate tissue growth and repair, and the company is looking for ways to either stimulate them or slow them down as a means of treating disease. Curis is collaborating with Genentech to develop cancer drugs using hedgehog pathways. The company also has internal development programs for cancer treatments using other signaling pathways.
