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.

We are an established team with a renewed energy to seize on an exciting opportunity. To get there we need outstanding people to join our team of talented, innovative and committed professionals.
