Advanced Science Research Center

Frezent is pioneering senotherapeutics for the treatment of patients with solid tumors. The company is developing biological inhibitors of cancer-specific lipid metabolism. These inhibitors can be effectively applied to target dormant (senescent) cancer cells that escaped chemotherapy and prevent their reactivation.
