Driving Innovation, Delivering U.S.-Manufactured APIs

The Lomustine Project
Solving the Lomustine API Crisis for Glioblastoma Patients
The APIIC’s initial project is the U.S. production of lomustine, a chemotherapy drug used to treat glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive form of brain cancer. There is currently no U.S. source of lomustine. According to the Society for Neuro-Oncology, “the field of neuro-oncology is in the midst of a crisis with lomustine.” The APIIC is working in partnership with Continuity Pharma and the Glioblastoma Foundation to resolve the lomustine crisis utilizing the advanced technologies of continuous flow manufacturing.
