PTx is devoted to developing and commercializing cancer medicines and combination therapies that can make a meaningful difference in the lives of cancer patients. We are united in our passion for improving the treatment of cancer and our desire to make a meaningful contribution to outcomes. We believe that innovation is not enough. In today’s challenging healthcare climate, we strive to develop and assess our products based on the real-world impact they have in improving the quality and duration of our patients’ lives.

PTx has recently acquired global rights to Leukine (Sargramostim). Leukine is the only licensed FDA-approved GM-CSF, and PTx is investing in Leukine to position it for growth.
