November 8, 2018

CAMBRIDGE, England & BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 8, 2018--Bicycle Therapeutics, a biotechnology company pioneering a new class of therapeutics based on its proprietary bicyclic peptide ( Bicycle® ) product platform, announced today that management will present a company update at the Jefferies 2018 London Healthcare Conference. The presentation will take place at 5:20 p.m. GMT on Thursday, November 15, 2018.

About Bicycle Therapeutics Bicycle Therapeutics is developing a unique class of chemically synthesised medicines based on its proprietary bicyclic peptide ( Bicycle® ) product platform to address therapeutic needs unreachable with existing treatment modalities. Bicycle’s internal focus is in oncology, where the company is developing targeted cytotoxics ( Bicycle Toxin Conjugates® ), targeted innate immune activators and T-cell modulators for cancers of high unmet medical need.  Bicycles’  small size and exquisite targeting deliver rapid tumour penetration and retention while clearance rates and routes of elimination can be tuned to minimise exposure of healthy tissue and bystander toxicities. The company’s lead program, BT1718, is being evaluated in a Phase I/IIa trial in collaboration with Cancer Research UK. The company’s unique intellectual property is based on the work initiated at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, U.K., by the scientific founders of the company, Sir Gregory Winter, a winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his pioneering work in phage display of peptides and antibodies, and Professor Christian Heinis. Bicycle has its headquarters in Cambridge, U.K., with many key functions and members of its leadership team located in the biotech hub of Boston, Mass.
