San Diego-based Lpath, Inc. ( NASDAQ : LPTN ), an antibody-platform company, is the category leader in lipidomics-based therapeutics, an emerging field of medicine that targets bioactive signaling lipids for treating a wide range of human disease. Lpath's ImmuneY2™ drug-discovery engine has the unique ability to generate therapeutic antibodies that bind to and inhibit bioactive lipids that contribute to disease. The company has developed three drug candidates, two of which -- iSONEP™ for wet AMD and ASONEP™ for cancer -- are currently being investigated in Phase 2 trials. The third candidate is an anti-LPA antibody that holds promise in neuropathic pain and neurotrauma.
