Fact Sheet
Aug. 2007
ONCONASE is a first-in-class therapeutic based on Alfacell's
proprietary ribonuclease (RNase) technology. A natural protein
isolated from the leopard frog, ONCONASE has been shown in
the laboratory and clinic to target cancer cells while sparing normal
cells. ONCONASE triggers apoptosis, the natural death of cells,
via multiple molecular mechanisms of action.
