AcuityBio's mission is to prevent post-surgical cancer recurrence in early stage cancer patients using localized drug delivery.


There is currently no established standard of care for preventing locoregional tumor recurrence following resection. The high rate of locoregional lung tumor recurrence leads to a significantly diminished the quality of life and reduced long-term survival for many lung cancer patients. Our technology directly addresses this unmet need and is designed to supplement or replace intravenous chemotherapy or external beam radiation and will become the first ''gold standard'' for preventative therapy against cancer recurrence.
