BXQ-350 is a first-of-its-kind cancer treatment that weaponizes the special mechanics of cancer to destroy it. Discovered by Xiaoyang Qi - Professor of Medicine, Co-Division Chief for Basic Science Research - BXQ-350 is a protein which can fuse to the walls of cancerous cells, causing those cells to die off.
