CLS Therapeutics Inc., a preclinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing next-generation gene therapy anticancer drugs, today announced that George Tetz, MD, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer, presented the poster, “CELL-FREE TUMOR DNA AND NEUTROPHIL EXTRACELLULAR TRAPS AS NOVEL THERAPEUTIC TARGETS FOR PANCREATIC CANCER” at the Frontiers in Cancer Immunotherapy organized by the New York Academy of Sciences May 14-15, 2019, in New York, New York.
Dr. Tetz’s presentation provided an overview of CLS-014, an engineered gene therapy platform addressing unmet need in pancreatic cancer with multiple follow-up extension opportunities. CLS-014 is an AAV vector that targets cell-free DNA, and has the potential for the treatment of solid tumors. The poster presentation also provided an overview of in vivo animal efficacy evaluating CLS-014 for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
Poster Session Presentation Details:
- Title: Cell-Free Tumor DNA And Neutrophil Extracellular Traps As Novel Therapeutic Targets For Pancreatic Cancer
- Poster Number: 26
- Event: Frontiers in Cancer Immunotherapy (NYAS)
- Date: Thursday, May 14-15, 2019
- Event Website: https://www.nyas.org/events/2019/cancer-metabolism-and-signaling/
About the CLS Therapeutics:
CLS Translating the new biology of cell-free DNA into novel therapeutic approaches for multiple cancers, beginning with our first program for pancreatic cancer. PC is the third-leading cause of cancer deaths in the United State with over 45,000 dying in 2018. It is expected to become the leading cause of cancer mortality already by 2030. 1-year survival is less than 30%. 5-year survival is less than 8%.
CLS-014 is in silico designed AAV-based vector encoding hyperactive human DNase I transgene cassette. Intravenous injection of the vector with a liver specific promoter leads to long term increase of serum DNase I activity that cleaves cell-free DNA in the blood and therefore affecting primary tumor growth, metastasis and complications associated with NETosis.
CLS-014 is administered as a single injection with any first-line chemotherapeutic agents.
CLS-Therapeutics presented animal data demonstrating the efficacy of CLS-014 in the treatment of orthotopic pancreatic mouse xenograft model. CLS-014 alone, inhibited primary tumor growth and metastasis and potentiates nab-paclitaxel.

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 18, 2019 / CLS Therapeutics, a privately held oncology-focused gene therapy company developing a platform technology based on the identification of a novel therapeutic target that can be utilized for many cancers, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Orphan Drug Designation to CLS-014 for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.h.
NEW YORK, NY / May 14, 2020 / CLS Therapeutics, a preclinical-stage anticancer gene therapy platform company developing novel medicines to bring the curative power of cell-free DNA destruction to patients with tumors, presented preclinical data on its AAV therapy clinical candidate, CLS-014, this week at the annual meeting of the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT).
NEW YORK, April 1, 2019 – CLS Therapeutics, Inc., today announced a poster presentation “First-In-Class -AAV-Based Gene Therapy For Pancreatic Cancer Based On The Destruction Of Cell-Free DNA with Vector-delivered DNase I” at the New York Academy of Sciences symposium “Frontiers in Cancer Immunotherapy” being held on May 14-15, 2019, in New York City. The presentation includes the first animal data for the activity of AAV-based vector (in silico designed) encoding DNase I of the treatment of pancreatic cancer animal model.
