About Diffusion Pharmaceuticals Inc.
Diffusion Pharmaceuticals Inc. is an innovative biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapies that enhance the body’s ability to deliver oxygen to the areas where it is needed most. Diffusion’s lead product candidate, trans sodium crocetinate, is being developed to enhance the diffusion of oxygen to tissues with low oxygen levels, also known as hypoxia, a serious complication of many of medicine’s most intractable and difficult-to-treat conditions. In addition to TSC, our product candidate DFN-529, a novel PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway inhibitor, is in early-stage development. We continue to explore alternatives regarding how best to capitalize upon the value of DFN-529 and our associated intellectual property.
