Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX), focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes, has announced its completion of the manufacturing scale-up of REQORSA(TM) immunogene therapy. Subject to satisfactory completion of final testing currently underway, the clinical-grade production is intended to supply Genprex’s upcoming Acclaim-1 and Acclaim-2 clinical trials for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer. The company recently announced the successful manufacturing technology transfer to commercial contract development and manufacturing organizations (“CDMOs”) as well as the successful engineering run of REQORSA, which passed all testing specifications. “The scaled-up production of clinical-grade REQORSA is yet another significant manufacturing milestone for the company,” said Michael Redman, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Genprex. “Utilizing advanced processes, we were able to successfully improve our production yield multi-fold with significantly improved economies of scale. This production is intended to provide REQORSA for our upcoming Acclaim clinical trials. Furthermore, this achievement positions Genprex with the manufacturing capability for potential future commercialization in the rapidly growing lung cancer therapeutics market, which is projected to grow to $26.3 billion by 2023.”

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.
