About Us


We are a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company discovering and developing novel drug candidates to treat inflammation, inflammatory pain, and blood cancers. We are dedicated to advancing novel therapeutics that we believe will make a clinically meaningful difference in patients’ lives.

Our primary focus is anti-inflammatory product candidates targeting SH2-containing inositol-5'-phosphatase 1, or SHIP1, an enzyme that plays a role in an important cellular signaling pathway in immune cells, known as the PI3K pathway. Aquinox has a broad intellectual property portfolio and pipeline of drug candidates that activate SHIP1.

Rosiptor (AQX-1125), Aquinox's lead drug candidate, is in a Phase 3 clinical trial in interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS). By activating SHIP1, rosiptor is believed to decrease the inflammatory process, thereby reducing inflammation and inflammatory pain.

We believe rosiptor is suitable for independent commercialization in the United States.
