About Elacestrant (RAD1901)
Elacestrant is a selective estrogen receptor degrader (SERD), which is being evaluated for potential use as a once daily oral treatment for hormone-receptor positive breast cancer. Elacestrant is currently being investigated for potential use in patients with advanced or metastatic estrogen receptor positive, HER2 negative, breast cancer, the most common form of the disease. Studies completed to date indicate that the compound has the potential for use as a single agent or in combination with other therapies for the treatment of breast cancer.

About RAD140

RAD140 is an oral Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator (SARM) for the potential treatment of hormone receptor positive advanced or metastatic breast cancer. AR is expressed in approximately 90% ER+ breast cancer tumors.
