Lantern Pharma Announces Abstract on Effectiveness of LP-184 in Pancreatic Cancers Accepted for Presentation at the AACR Virtual Special Conference: Pancreatic Cancer
DALLAS, Aug. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lantern Pharma (NASDAQ: LTRN), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company using its proprietary RADR® artificial intelligence ("A.I.") platform to transform the cost, pace, and timeline of oncology drug discovery and development, today announced that Lantern Pharma's abstract titled 'LP-184, a novel alkylating agent, is highly effective in pancreatic cancers with DNA damage repair defects' has been accepted as a virtual poster at the upcoming AACR Virtual Special Conference on Pancreatic Cancer being held on September 29-30, 2021.
The abstract submitted by Lantern Pharma and researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center describes work demonstrating promising efficacy of LP-184 in multiple in vitro and in vivo pancreatic cancer models. The abstract also highlights the increased efficacy and synthetic lethality of LP-184 in pancreatic cancers with DNA damage repair deficiencies.
Virtual posters will be available on-demand to attendees starting on September 29, 2021 and will remain accessible for 90 days after the live program ends. Accepted abstracts will be published as an online-only proceedings supplement to an AACR journal after the completion of the meeting.
LP-184 is a small molecule drug candidate and next generation alkylating agent that preferentially damages DNA in cancer cells that over-express certain biomarkers or that harbor mutations in DNA repair pathways. LP-184 is being developed for several targeted indications in cancer, including pancreatic cancer. LP-184 has recently been granted Orphan Drug Designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
