About NexGenix: NexGenix Pharmaceuticals Holdings, Inc. is a privately-held biotechnology company based in New York City. The Company's portfolio consists of a series of Hsp90 inhibitors, a novel target therapy for oncology and neurodegenerative disorders, which has attracted an enormous amount of development interest in the past several years.
