BioMedNewsBreaks – Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX) Announces Presentation of Positive REQORSA(TM) Preclinical Data to Audience of World’s Leading Cancer Researchers

April 12, 2021 11:17:48

Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX), a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing treatments for patients with cancer and diabetes, today announced that its collaborators presented positive preclinical data for TUSC2 immunogene therapy (REQORSA(TM)) in combination with chemotherapy and immunotherapies for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”). According to the update, collaborators also presented positive preclinical data for the use of REQORSA in combination with targeted therapies for the treatment of NSCLC. The data were presented at the 2021 American Association of Cancer Research (“AACR”) annual meeting. “We are pleased to have these positive data that provide further support for the therapeutic potential of REQORSA in combination with immunotherapies and targeted therapies in NSCLC presented before an audience of the world’s leading cancer researchers. These data are particularly encouraging as we look to initiate our upcoming combination Acclaim-1 and Acclaim-2 clinical trials of REQORSA in NSCLC,” said Rodney Varner, president and chief executive officer of Genprex. “We know that many patients inevitably develop resistance to immune checkpoint blockade therapy or EGFR-TKI therapy. These data show that REQORSA in combination with immunotherapies and targeted therapies may provide enhanced efficacy in NSCLC that has become resistant to these regimens, offering hope to a large patient population who currently has limited treatment options.”

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.
