Company Description

Leap Therapeutics Ltd, formerly Macrocure Ltd, is a biotechnology company. The Company is focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing cell therapy products to address unmet needs for the treatment of chronic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) and venous leg ulcers (VLUs). Its product candidate, CureXcell, is a combination of living human white blood cells that have been activated to facilitate the healing process and stimulate wound closure. CureXcell is in Phase III. Its CureXcell addresses each phase of healing in the impaired wound, including the production of growth factors and other biochemical factors involved in fibroblast activation, cell migration and extracellular matrix production, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. Its delivery method of direct superficial injection into the chronic wound allows the precise delivery of the cells into the defective wound tissue where they can be effective.
