InvestorNewsBreaks – Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX) Announces Conditional FDA Acceptance of Proprietary Name for Lead Drug Candidate

Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX), a clinical-stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for patients with cancer and diabetes, has received conditional FDA acceptance of the proprietary name REQORSA(TM), its lead drug candidate for treatment of non-small cell lung cancer. The drug candidate was known previously by the laboratory designation GPX-001. The approval of the new name marks a critical branding milestone  for the company. Genprex’s REQORSA (pronounced “re-KORE-suh”) immunogene therapy features the company’s exclusive ONCOPREX(TM) nanoparticle delivery system that delivers cancer-fighting genes. The name will be resubmitted to the FDA for final review and approval after all required clinical trials are completed; that final approval is based on the FDA’s approval of the product candidate. The new name was based on FDA’s guidelines for the submission and evaluation of proprietary names. Genprex selected the name based on a comprehensive review of name candidates, including a study of healthcare practitioners across the country to guarantee accurate prescription and safety interpretation of the name. “We are very pleased to receive FDA’s conditional acceptance of our proprietary name, REQORSA, which is a necessary step toward being able to market our lead drug candidate for non-small cell lung cancer,” said Genprex president and CEO Rodney Varner in the press release. “This name approval also marks an important milestone in our overall branding strategy, giving us a unique, easily understood name people can associate with the Genprex brand and mission.”

About Genprex Inc. 

Genprex is a clinical-stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for patients with cancer and diabetes. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new treatment options for large patient populations with cancer and diabetes who currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to in-license and develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches. The company’s lead product candidate, GPX-001 (quaratusugene ozeplasmid), is being evaluated as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”). GPX-001 has a multimodal mechanism of action that has been shown to interrupt cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells; re-establish pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells; and modulate the immune response against cancer cells. GPX-001 has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. In January 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted fast track designation for GPX-001 for NSCLC in combination therapy with osimertinib (AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso(R)) for patients with “EFGR” mutations whose tumors progressed after treatment with osimertinib alone.
