Company Technology

Thymidine Kinase 1 (TK1) is a normal protein found inside dividing cells of the body. Savoy's technology is based on the company's revolutionary discovery that TK1 is also found on the surface of cancer cells and not on the surface of normal cells. The company has developed a monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to the TK1 on the surface of cancer cells. Numerous tests have demonstrated that the antibody binds to and kills cancerous cells while causing no harm to the normal cells. This is a major breakthrough in the war against cancer and opens the door to unique therapeutic applications using the antibody.
