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. With Leukine, PTx acquired its state-of-the-art Northpointe (NP) manufacturing facility in Lynnwood and we are North of Seattle, just a few minutes from downtown (but far enough out of, traffic and high cost of living in the city!). We are an established team with a renewed energy to seize on an exciting opportunity. PTx is a small company full of opportunities and ambition and we need outstanding people to join our team to help realize our mission.
