About AXL1717 (picropodophyllin)
AXL1717 is an orally bioavailable small molecule with dual mechanisms of action, which has been shown to pass through the blood-brain barrier. AXL1717 targets the IGF-1R signaling pathway but does not bind the IGF-1R. AXL1717 has also been shown to yield cell cycle arrest in mitosis, due to indirect effects on microtubule dynamics, making it a unique anti-cancer drug.

The company was founded based on research performed at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm and the discovery of a group of compounds that target the IGF-1 receptor signaling pathway without affecting signaling from the closely related insulin receptor.
