January 23, 2019

AUSTIN, Texas & CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 23, 2019--Genprex, Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX), a clinical-stage gene therapy company developing a new approach to treating cancer based upon a novel proprietary technology platform, today announced that its President and Chief Operating Officer, Julien Pham, MD, MPH, will deliver a presentation about the company’s unique, leading-edge gene therapies and will also participate in a discussion panel on the topic of “Novel Therapies at the Cutting Edge of Cancer Research” at NobleConXV - Noble Capital Markets’ Fifteenth Annual Investor Conference at the W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Genprex’s NobleConXV Presentation: Presentation – The Genprex Platform: A Novel Approach to Cancer Treatment Date: Monday, January 28, 2019 Time: 2 p.m. (EST) Room: Studio 1 Venue: W Hotel, 401 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304

Genprex’s NobleConXV Panel Discussion: Panel Presentation - Novel Therapies at the Cutting Edge of Cancer Research Date: Monday, January 28, 2019 Time: 5:30 p.m. (EST) Room: Studio 3 Venue: W Hotel, 401 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304

“We are honored to deliver a presentation about our cutting-edge technologies that have the potential to change the way cancer patients are treated,” said Rodney Varner, Genprex’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. “NobleCon is the perfect place to showcase the science behind this innovative approach to gene therapy.”

Genprex’s approach to treating cancer is based on a proprietary technology platform that includes the company’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy. Oncoprex’s multimodal mechanism of action has demonstrated the ability to interrupt cell-signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, while re-establishing pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. The company holds a portfolio of 30 issued patents and two pending patents covering its platform technologies.

Genprex is looking forward to presenting to the conference and will have a high-definition webcast of the presentation available the following day on the company’s website at www.genprex.com. It will also be available as part of a complete catalog of presentations available at Noble Capital Markets’ Conference website at www.nobleconference.com as well as the new investor portal created by Noble called Channelchek at www.channelchek.com. The webcast will be archived on the company’s website, the NobleCon website and on Channelchek.com for 90 days following the event.

About Genprex, Inc.

Genprex, Inc. is a clinical stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients, based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. Oncoprex has a multimodal mechanism of action whereby it interrupts cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. Visit the company’s web site at genprex.com or follow Genprex on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
