Radient Pharmaceuticals Corporation is an integrated pharmaceutical company. The Company focuses on the research, development, manufacturing, and marketing of diagnostic and premium skin-care products. Radient Pharmaceuticals Corporation has their headquarters in Tustin, California and they trade on the NYSE Amex.
The Company’s core business strategy and market focus is on the international commercialization of Onko-Sure™ and Elleuxe products. Onko-Sure is a simple, non-invasive, patent-pending and regulatory-approved in vitro test for use as an aid in early detection of cancer. It enables physicians and their patients to effectively monitor and/or detect certain types of cancers. This is through measuring the accumulation of specific breakdown products in the blood called Fibrin and Fibrinogen Degradation Products (FDP). FDP levels rise significantly with the progression of cancer. Onko-Sure has approval by the US FDA for the monitoring of colorectal cancer and by Health Canada as a lung cancer screen and cancer-monitoring tool.
The Company’s Elleuxe is a therapeutic, high-end skin-care product line based on the active ingredient ‘Elleuxe Protein.’ This is the Company’s proprietary active ingredient. It offers cell-renewing properties designed to minimize the appearance of aging. The initial Elleuxe product line includes Hydrating Firming Cream, Renergie Hydrating Cleanser, Intense Hydrating Cleanser, Visable Renewing Hydrating Softener, and Smoothing Renewing Eye Moisturizer.
