"Retaining Addison Whitney is an important step in bringing our drug candidate to market,” Chairman and CEO Rodney Varner said. "Obtaining regulatory approval of proprietary and non-proprietary drug names is a necessary step in securing marketing approval, and Addison Whitney has an impressive track record in obtaining such name approvals.”

The Austin-based company’s drug fights non-small cell lung cancer by transporting cancer-fighting genes to cancerous cells.
