    Our vision is to apply the versatile Cloudbreak small molecule immunotherapy platform to treat patients with compromised immune systems across multiple therapeutic areas. We will initially target patients with compromised immune systems resulting from cancer therapy, bone marrow transplants and solid organ transplants where the risk of death from invasive fungal infections, even on best available care, often exceeds 50 percent. Our objective is to rewrite the book on how such infections are treated.
