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. We measure our success in the birthdays, anniversaries, and other important life moments that our patients are able to enjoy.


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 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. To get there we need outstanding people to join our team of talented, innovative and committed professionals.
