CLS Therapeutics will be presenting at the upcoming American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) Annual Meeting

NEW YORK, NY /  April 06, 2021 / CLS Therapeutics,  cancer gene therapy company utilizing a novel therapeutic target, announces presentation at the upcoming 2021 American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) 24th Annual Meeting.

A digital presentation named “First-in-Class Anticancer AAV-Based Gene
Therapy Based on the Destruction of NETs with Transgene Expression of DNase I in Liver” will showcase CLS’ data for the use of CLS-014 drug candidate for colorectl cancer. CLS has identified a new therapeutic target for the successful anticancer therapy for multiple cancers: tumor- and neutrophils- derived cell-free DNA.  This cell-free DNA circulates freely in the bloodstream and is also present extracellularly in tumors and metastasis, which was shown to be a critical component of the tumor microenvironment . Thus,  CLS revolutionizes cancer therapy, since the proposed target was shown to play a primary role in the failure of existing anticancer therapies (and has been independently confirmed by leading universities and research groups). The Company uses smart AAV technology for the delivery of the DNase I gene to the liver, after which, hepatocytes start to produce recombinant human enzyme that destroys this cell-free DNA.

The data that will be presented by Dr. Tetz, MD, PhD., Chief Executive Officer of CLS Therapeutics, and exemplifies how CLS’ cutting-edge gene therapy capabilities can be leveraged to potentiate first-line chemotherapy, decrease primary tumor growth and prevent metastases formation in colorectal cancer.
