FT. WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NanOlogy, a clinical-stage oncology company, announced today its Chief Medical Officer, Gere diZerega, MD, will participate on an immuno-oncology panel at the BIO CEO and Investor Conference February 11, 2019 9:00-9:55 am, Schubert Complex, 6th floor, New York Marriot Marquis.
The panel, entitled “Reshaping Tumor Microenvironments via Immunotherapies,” will examine the next wave of innovation in immunotherapies for leveraging knowledge of how tumor microenvironments develop to create treatments able to demonstrate more durable effects on shrinking tumors across wider ranges of patients.
Based on a proprietary production technology platform, NanOlogy is developing patented submicron particle forms of paclitaxel and docetaxel designed for local delivery directly to the disease site. Preclinical and clinical data across broad therapeutic areas, including genitourinary, gastrointestinal, peritoneal, and lung cancers indicate targeted delivery of the submicron particles of pure drug enhance tumor kill and generate significant immune stimulation with minimal systemic side effects. The data underscore the potential for NanOlogy investigational drugs to be ideal companions to IO therapy for certain solid tumors.
The company is in clinical development of its investigational drugs for prostate cancer, bladder cancer, renal cancer, peritoneal/ovarian cancers, pancreatic cancer, pancreatic mucinous cysts, and lung cancer.
BioSpace recently named NanOlogy to its list of Top 20 Life Sciences companies to watch in 2019.
Joining Dr. diZerega on the panel are: Moderator: Jotin Marango, MD, PhD, Managing Director, Senior Research Analyst, ROTH Capitol; Lewis H. Bender, Chief Executive Officer, Intensity Therapeutics; Sabine Chlosta, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer, Triumvira Therapeutics; and Eric Falcand, Vice President of Business Development & Licensing, Servier.
NanOlogy investigational drugs are progressing under the FDA streamlined 505(b) (2) regulatory pathway. The NanOlogy submicron particle technology platform is based on a patented production process that reduces the size of paclitaxel and docetaxel API crystals by up to 400 times into stable submicron particles of pure drug with exponentially increased surface area and unique geometry. The submicron particles are so unique that they are protected under a composition of matter patent (US 9,814,685) valid until 2036, which provides new molecular entity-like advantages without the risks and timeline associated with NME drug development.
NanOlogy, LLC (www.nanology.us) is a private clinical stage oncology company formed in 2015 to finance and clinically develop a patented submicron particle technology platform for local, sustained delivery of proven drugs aimed at increasing their value in the treatment of cancer and related conditions.
