In a groundbreaking initiative, Sibylla Biotech and MD Anderson Cancer Center have embarked on a collaborative mission to develop novel cancer treatments. This partnership aims to harness innovative technology and unparalleled expertise to create impactful therapies for cancer patients. The collaboration leverages Sibylla’s advanced Pharmacological Protein Inactivation by Folding Intermediates Targeting (PPI-FIT) technology, alongside MD Anderson’s extensive drug development capabilities, to push the boundaries of cancer treatment.

These treatments, known as Folding Interfering Degraders (FIDs), focus on targeting the protein folding process to induce the degradation of proteins associated with cancer. This approach offers a novel method to address proteins that were previously considered “undruggable,” thereby opening up new pathways for therapeutic intervention. The collaboration between Sibylla and MD Anderson aims to progress from the initial target identification to the nomination of drug candidates, with the potential to advance through pre-clinical and clinical development stages.
