Jupiter, FL
Biotechnology
BioCurity is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company. We are developing our first drug to prevent or mitigate burns to the skin of patients with cancer during radiation therapy. The proposed drugs generated from BioCurity’s proprietary technology have been preclinically tested for multiple cancers including breast, lung, head and neck, prostate and colorectal cancer. The method of administration of the proposed drug includes a topical for the skin to prevent or mitigate skin damage (radiation dermatitis) and an intravenous (IV) formulation for internal tissue protection from radiation damage. We intend to accomplish these goals without impairing the effectiveness of radiation treatment or causing toxic side effects to the cancer patient. We believe our technology can save billions of dollars annually of healthcare dollars used now to treat preventable side effects of radiation therapy.

"Because we believe that fighting cancer is hard enough"

Radiation therapy is a common cancer treatment that can have serious side effects

Did you know that radiation therapy, just like chemotherapy, can cause unpleasant and serious side effects for patients with cancer?


The side effects of radiation are not as widely known as those from chemotherapy. Radiation can cause permanent side effects or limit the ability of cancer patients to continue with or tolerate their radiation therapy treatment.


The side effects of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy became much more manageable with the approval of several different categories of supportive care medications.

Clinical development consultants and radiation oncologists with whom the scientific founder, Dr. Baker, has spoken with, believe and agree that if effective, a drug designed to protect the skin and internal tissue from radiation damage would be well received by the patients with cancer who may endure side effects. Our preclinical proof of concept studies in animals was conducted at an MD Anderson Cancer Center affiliate and in collaboration with highly regarded research organizations.


Biocurity is looking to move forward in developing its proposed drugs and positively impact the cancer treatment process for millions of patients worldwide.


Imagine…if cancer patients no longer had to worry about whether or not they were going to suffer from their radiation treatment

There is an unmet patient need to prevent or mitigate the side effects of life-saving radiation therapy

Globally, approximately 6 million newly diagnosed patients with cancer receive radiation therapy annually. Some of the adverse side effects of this treatment include skin burns, blistering, permanent scarring, and damage to internal non-cancer healthy tissue. Peer-reviewed articles describe reported cases of short term and long term side effects sustained by cancer patients who have received radiation therapy as part of their cancer treatment.


Complications of radiation therapy in different types of cancers:

  • Breast - Scarring of breasts, blisters, scars, pain
  • Head and Neck - Drying of mouth (loss of saliva), difficulty swallowing, skin burning and pain
  • Prostate - Inflammation of rectum, damage to the urinary bladder (frequent painful urination), skin burning, pain
  • Colorectal - Damage to the bowel (bleeding of the rectum), skin burning, pain
  • Lung - Scarring of the lungs (pneumonia), skin burning, pain


The lack of adequate treatment options available to prevent or mitigate the damage to normal tissue causes an unmet global need for millions of cancer patients. Beyond that, we believe there are currently no products on the market to prevent radiation dermatitis for cancer patients. At BioCurity, our objective is to prevent or reduce the side effects patients experience while undergoing radiation treatment for cancer.


First-of-its-kind drug to prevent or mitigate damage to normal tissue during radiation

Radiation exposure creates free radicals (also known as Reactive Oxygen Species) that damage cell DNA and cause cell death in cancerous and normal cells.

Eliminating Free radicals

BioCurity’s proprietary technology is intended to eliminate these free radicals, protecting the skin and healthy internal tissues from unwanted DNA damage and the ensuing side effects-- without interfering with the treatment of cancer cells. Our first proposed drug is a topical for radiation dermatitis and with the support from a biotech venture or as part of a joint venture with a pharma company, we believe we would meet our goal to develop our proposed IV drug (for the prevention of internal tissue radiation damage).

Every patient with cancer undergoing radiation therapy

Globally, approximately 6 million out of the approximate 18 million newly diagnosed cancer patients receive radiation therapy annually and 1 million of them live in the United States. BioCurity’s technology and drug candidates have the potential to significantly reduce radiation toxicity not just for these newly diagnosed patients but also for the many other patients who receive radiation as part of their ongoing treatment for cancer.

The first target market we intend to test with our BC 101 is breast cancer patients. It is expected to provide a material decrease in government and insurance funds required to treat skin damage of burns, scars, and blisters:


  • Breast cancer is leading cancer in the United States for women, and it is estimated that 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer over their lifetime.
  • Radiation treatment for breast cancer can be used after lumpectomy, after mastectomy, for pain management, for managing metastatic breast cancer and for treating locally advanced breast cancer
  • Some form of skin damage has been referenced in the scientific literature to inflict nearly all women with breast cancer who are receiving radiation therapy.
  • The short term and long term skin damage associated with radiation therapy for breast cancer patients include localized burning and blisters that can often be permanent, open wounds, extreme swelling and tenderness of the breast and surrounding lymph nodes, and permanent scars.


Preclinical trials completed and third-party experts see promise

BioCurity has presented its preclinical data and technology to Key Opinion Leaders including the Chief of Medicine and Chairman of the Radiation Oncology Department at their respective leading United States cancer centers and received notable interest in its proposed topical and IV drugs.

After meeting with the FDA in a Pre-Investigational New Drug Application (Pre-IND) meeting, BioCurity has a path of development for its proposed topical formulation for patients with breast cancer. Upon adequate funding, management is ready to execute its plan as the path set out by the FDA.

Increasing the attractiveness to capital markets

With a fully paid, license for its technology that is freely transferable, BioCurity is well situated for collaborative transactions with pharmaceutical strategic groups. Favorable exit strategies for biotech companies include proceeding with clinical development up through a demonstration of clinical efficacy and then licensing the product or soliciting an acquisition.

Management has made efforts to structure the company with multiple exit strategies along the path of growth, to enable it to consider opportunities at any point along its growth curve.

Striving to be the first FDA approved drug for the prevention of radiation dermatitis 

Despite recent advancements in technology for new treatments, there is no definitive intervention for the prevention of skin damage.

As such, if safe and effective, BioCurity’s first proposed topical drug would be the first and only FDA approved drug for the prevention of radiation dermatitis in patients receiving radiation treatment for cancer. The currently available treatments used to manage side effects from radiation have limited effectiveness and a large number of potential cancer patients represent a significant and global unmet need and tremendous value proposition for BioCurity’s proposed topical drug and other potential drugs such as the IV formulation for the protection of internal tissues. 

Improving the quality of life for cancer patients and survivors undergoing radiation therapy worldwide

Over the next three years, given adequate funding, we will be working to clinically develop our topical product for breast cancer patients. We intend to build out a management team, engage in-house consultants from the drug industry and submit the Investigational New Drug Application for a breast cancer product.


While our immediate focus is developing a new investigational topical product for breast cancer radiation therapy, we have greater aspirations. With the establishment of efficacy for breast cancer then additional clinical trials with our topical product for other cancers could begin. Eventually, with a joint venture with a pharma company or support from a biotech venture fund, we aim to develop an IV formulation of our product designed to protect the internal tissue from radiation.

A strong management team and roster of advisors

BioCurity has built a world-class team, balancing decades of experience in science, business operations, international, and legal/banking experience.

Dr. Cheryl Baker Ph.D., the scientific founder, performed the preclinical development and testing alongside radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and others in the medical community. She has published more than 45 peer-reviewed manuscripts, book chapters, and articles. Chairman of the Board, Sam Merchant, brings expertise in structuring and negotiating transactions globally in Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical R&D in the production, manufacturing, and distribution of products provides value-added for BioCurity’s overall clinical development goals. Executive board member Nancy Cass, Esq, uses her depth of knowledge in transactional and securities law to make certain BioCurity is transaction-ready and the due diligence and corporate governance is properly performed and managed. BioCurity is also guided by a group of expert third-party advisors with substantial experience in all phases of drug development and the biotech industry - they are our very dedicated Consultants and Advisors - MDs, PhDs, MBAs, with decades of Biotech experience.

Join us in transforming radiation therapy for cancer patients

All investments to date have been to friends and family without general outside marketing. BioCurity is ready to share its story and to reach those non-accredited investors who have not been eligible to participate in past raises. With adequate funding, we can continue to develop BioCurity’s technology and meet the high demand for a product that can transform the radiation therapy experience by limiting side effects.
