About Humanetics Corporation and BIO 300

Humanetics is developing a new drug candidate, BIO 300, as a medical countermeasure to prevent radiation damage. BIO 300 has received considerable attention, funding, and research from the Department of Defense (DOD) for its potential to mitigate the harmful effects of radiation among warfighters and civilians in the event of a nuclear attack or radiological incident. Given current world events, the need for such a product has escalated significantly. Humanetics is currently working under a contract with DOD to position BIO 300 for Emergency Use.

BIO 300 is a new class of drug focused on improving outcomes in cancer patients who received first-line radiotherapy with or without concurrent chemotherapy.  These patients suffer from a myriad of unintended side effects, which can reduce the efficacy of treatment or result in serious toxicities.  BIO 300 acts to protect normal tissues, improving the therapeutic outcome.

BIO 300 is being evaluated in phase 2 clinical trials to prevent normal tissue injury from cancer radiotherapy and reduce lung damage in COVID-19 long-haul patients. It is self-administered by patients in these trials as an oral liquid nanosuspension. It has shown the potential to minimize radiation damage in normal tissues without impacting the effectiveness of the radiation therapy against the tumor. BIO 300 was the subject of an early-stage trial in non-small cell lung cancer patients undergoing chemoradiotherapy. It was found to be safe, with results pointing to positive clinical outcomes.

Humanetics licensed BIO 300 from the United States Department of Defense (DOD), where it was discovered as a potent radioprotectant for warfighters on the battlefield. Its use in cancer patients is highly aligned with its military use, as it serves in both cases to protect normal tissues from radiation damage.
