About OxSonics Therapeutics

OxSonics® Therapeutics’ proprietary platform technology, SonoTran®, is being developed to provide a step-change in the therapeutic index of anti-cancer agents without the development costs or delays associated with drug reformulation. SonoTran is designed to increase the dose and distribution of anti-cancer agents within solid tumours, thereby increasing the efficacy and/or reducing the toxicity of these agents across the majority of the most challenging solid tumour cancers.

The approach has been specifically designed to fit seamlessly into existing oncology clinical workflows, and has the major advantage of enabling healthcare professionals to see-as-they-treat by providing visualisation on-screen and in real time.

The SonoTran drug delivery platform is based on ground-breaking technological advances, originally invented at the University of Oxford’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering.

OxSonics is based in Oxford in the UK.
