NEW YORK, NY / April 08, 2020 / CLS Therapeutics, a privately held anticancer gene therapy platform company addressing a novel therapeutic target, announces presentation at the upcoming 2020 American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) Annual Meeting that will be held from April 29 to May 2, 2019 that is planned to be held May 12 – May 15, 2020, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, USA.
A poster presentation named “First-In-Class AAV-Based Gene Therapy for Pancreatic Cancer and Other Tumors Based on the Destruction of Cell-Free DNA with Vector-Delivered DNase I” will showcase CLS’ data for the use of their CLS-014 drug candidate. CLS has identified a new therapeutic target (blood tumor- and neutrophils- derived cell-free DNA) for the successful anticancer therapy for multiple cancers and their initial indication is pancreatic cancer. 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 gene to the liver, after which, hepatocytes in a 48 hours start to produce recombinant human enzyme that destroys this cell-free DNA.
The data that will be presented is 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 pancreatic cancer models. Furthermore, Dr. Tetz, MD, PhD., Chief Executive Officer of CLS Therapeutics, will be participating in the Scientific Symposiums.
