About ValiRx

ValiRx is a biotechnology oncology-focused company specialising in developing novel treatments for cancer.

The Company’s business model focuses on identifying and in-licensing early-stage projects, adding value through scientific development and then out-licensing therapeutic candidates early in the development process. By aiming for early-stage value creation, the Company reduces risk while increasing the potential for realising value.

Until recently, cancer treatments relied on non-specific agents, such as chemotherapy. With the development of target-based agents, primed to attack cancer cells only, less toxic and more effective treatments are now possible.

The Company listed on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange in October 2006 and trades under the ticker symbol: VAL.
