According to the Kentucky Economic Development Guide:
Gov. Steve Beshear has announced two job-creation projects, Bexion Pharmaceuticals LLC in Covington, and Vivorte LLC in Louisville. Combined, the projects will create 14 new high-tech and technical support jobs paying an average annual salary of over $70,000, exclusive of benefits.
Bexion Pharmaceuticals is developing a unique cancer drug that can be used to treat a wide range of cancers by targeting tumors. Vivorte is developing a bone replacement material to help bones heal better and an implant that strengthens hips to help prevent hip fractures.
“The technologies under development by Bexion and Vivorte are designed to fight two significant medical problems – cancer and bone injuries,” said Gov. Beshear. “By helping these pioneering companies to commercialize their products, we are not only adding 14 high-paying jobs for Kentuckians, we are also helping to develop products that can benefit people around the world.”
