Pimera Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing breakthrough medicines for cancer and other diseases with high unmet medical need, announced today that an oral presentation on PMR-116 will be delivered at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2022, being held in New Orleans, LA, April 8-13, 2022.
Details of the oral presentation are as follows:
Title: “PMR-116, a novel inhibitor of ribosome biogenesis with antitumor activity in preclinical models of prostate cancer”
Date and Time: April 11, 2022, 3:05 PM-3:20 PM
Location: Great Hall AD, New Orleans Convention Center
PMR-116 is our lead therapeutic in clinical development for multiple cancer indications including solid tumors. PMR-116 acts through a novel mechanism of action, targeting the RNA polymerase I, or POL I, a transcription factor for MYC driven cancers and other diseases with high unmet medical need. In preclinical studies, PMR-116 has demonstrated robust preclinical efficacy in multiple MYC-driven models, including those that are resistant to standard-of-care treatments. PMR-116 is currently in the dose escalation stage of a Phase 1a/b clinical trial being conducted in Australia. Pimera intends to expand the development of PMR-116 in patients with MYC overexpressing solid tumors in a tumor type-agnostic approach.
