Presenter: Dr. Vishwas Paralkar Session: New Developments in PARP Inhibitors & Novel DDR Pathway Targets Date/Time: Wednesday, January 30th from 2:30 – 3:00 p.m. EST
-- Discovery of IDH1/2 Mutations Which Induce a BRCAness State that confers PARP Inhibitor Sensitivity
Presenter: Dr. Ranjit Bindra Session: Advances in Clinical Biomarker Development Date/Time: Thursday, January 31st from 2:00 – 2:30 p.m. EST
Per Hellsund, President and CEO of Cybrexa, commented, “At Cybrexa, our mission is to develop new treatment options for patient populations with high unmet need. Based on preclinical data, we believe our alphalex™ technology will be able to successfully combine a potent PARP inhibitor with chemotherapy to enable more efficacious therapeutic combinations in new patient populations. To that end, we are very excited to share the potential of our technology at the upcoming DNA Damage Response Therapeutics Summit.”
About the alphalex™ Technology Platform The Cybrexa alphalex™ technology platform enables the delivery of small molecules across the cell membrane under low pH conditions, which is a universal feature of cancer cells. As a result, alphalex™ technology – which consists of a novel peptide, linker and small molecule anti-cancer agent – allows for antigen-independent, intracellular delivery of small molecule anti-cancer agents directly into the tumor cell.
