Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX), a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing treatments for patients with cancer and diabetes, today announced that preclinical data of its TUSC2 immunogene therapy (REQORSA(TM)) in combination with chemotherapy and immunotherapies, as well as in combination with targeted therapies to overcome resistance to osimertinib, for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”), will be featured in two presentations at the upcoming annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (“AACR 21”). The event is slated to take place virtually from April 9-14, 2021. “We look forward to the presentation of these data that highlight the potential of TUSC2 immunogene therapy to enhance chemo-immune combination treatments and overcome resistance to osimertinib in lung cancer, to an audience of the world’s leading cancer researchers,” said Rodney Varner, president and chief executive officer of Genprex. “As lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, we remain keenly focused on initiating our Acclaim-1 and Acclaim-2 clinical trials to evaluate REQORSA, our proprietary TUSC2 immunogene therapy, in non-small cell lung cancer.”

About Genprex Inc.
Genprex is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new therapies for large patient populations with cancer and diabetes who currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches. The company’s lead product candidate, “REQORSA(TM)” (quaratusugene ozeplasmid), is being evaluated as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”). REQORSA has a multimodal mechanism of action that has been shown to interrupt cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells; re-establish pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells; and modulate the immune response against cancer cells. REQORSA has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. In January 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted Fast Track Designation for REQORSA for NSCLC in combination therapy with osimertinib (AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso(R)) for patients with EFGR mutations whose tumors progressed after treatment with osimertinib alone.
