Last month RXi Pharmaceuticals Corp (NASDAQ:RXII) made a series of presentations at various events.

Cardia also talked about the company’s ongoing clinical and research programs especially in the areas of ophthalmology, dermatology and immunotherapy. The event had drawn leaders from various sectors including pharmaceutical, finance and biotech.
Another presentation that was made last month was by the chief development officer of RXi Pharmaceuticals Corp (NASDAQ:RXII), Gerrit Dispersyn. This was at the Ladenburg Thalmann Healthcare Conference which took place in New York City. Dispersyn’s presentation revolved around RNAi which is a self-delivering platform and applicable in various therapeutic areas. His presentation also touched on various RXi programs including ophthalmology, dermatology and immune-oncology.
RXi Executive departure
Last month also saw the RXi’s chief business officer, Alexey Eliseev, leave the company. Eliseev had joined RXi at the beginning of the year after RXi acquired Mirimmune, a privately-held firm which develops therapeutics used in the treatment of cancer.
“The Company would like to thank Dr. Eliseev for his support in integrating MirImmune into our Company’s day-to-day activities, and for providing RXi exposure to some of the key players in this new and exciting space,” RXi Pharmaceuticals Corp (NASDAQ:RXII)’s chief executive officer and president, Dr. Geert Cauwenbergh, said after the departure of Eliseev.
While at RXi the group that was led by Cardia was involved in discovering and optimizing rxRNAs which are self-delivering. Cardia’s group was also responsible for the characterization and development of RXI-109, an anti-fibrotic agent which is currently being tested as a therapy for retinal and dermal scarring.
Following Eliseev’s exit, Cardia took over the business development and partnering responsibilities. Eliseev obtained a chemistry Ph.D from Boston College and received his postdoctoral training at Harvard University.
