About FASN
FASN is a cellular enzyme implicated in HCV replication and several cancers. First-generation FASN inhibitors have shown preclinical benefits in a variety of viral infections, including HCV, as well as in models of pancreatic, prostatic, breast and colorectal tumors, but their development has been hindered by poor bioavailability and systemic tolerability. 3-V has discovered and is advancing proprietary FASN inhibitors with pharmaceutical properties that overcome the shortcomings of earlier generations of inhibitors, and have the potential to become potent therapeutics for chronic HCV and other indications.
