BIND Therapeutics is a clinical-stage nanomedicine platform company developing Accurins, our novel targeted therapeutics.

BIND-014 is currently in Phase 2 clinical trials for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer and metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer.

BIND has announced ongoing collaborations with Pfizer Inc., AstraZeneca AB, F.
