Light Sciences Oncology (LSO) is developing Talaporfin Sodium for solid tumors as well as other indications such as BPH. Talaporfin Sodium is a water-soluble drug targeted by a small, single-use, disposable drug activator included with the drug. Talaporfin Sodium is designed to provide tolerable, effective, and repeatable treatments for patients. LSO has completed treatment of patients in a Phase 3 trial of Talaporfin Soduim in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), a Phase 3 trial for metastatic colorectal cancer (MCRC) and in Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlargement of the prostate. The company has positioned its technology to benefit an increasing number of patients with a strong portfolio of intellectual property, innovative applications in development, and an exceptionally capable and efficient team.

Talaporfin Sodium has been identified during development as Litx™, and Aptocine.
