Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX), a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes, is reporting on positive data gathered from the phase 1 portion of its Acclaim-1 clinical trial. The trial is designed to evaluate the company’s proprietary lead product candidate, REQORSA(R) Immunogene Therapy, in combination with Tagrisso(R) in the treatment of late-stage non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”). The results are being published in an abstract at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology (“ASCO”) annual meeting, held on June 2–6, 2023, in Chicago. According to the announcement, the results demonstrate that the combination of REQORSA and Tagrisso was well tolerated at all three dose levels evaluated in the study; in addition, encouraging evidence of efficacy was observed. “We are thrilled to have our abstract, which reports positive results from the phase 1 portion of our Acclaim-1 clinical trial, published at the ASCO annual meeting,” said Genprex chief medical officer Mark Berger in the press release. “We are encouraged by the favorable safety profile of REQORSA, as well as the preliminary efficacy data we have observed, and we believe this data will support our advancement to the phase 2 portion of the clinical trial.”

About Genprex Inc.
Genprex is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new therapies for large patient populations with cancer and diabetes, which currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches. Genprex’s oncology program utilizes its proprietary, nonviral ONCOPREX(R) Nanoparticle Delivery System, which encapsulates the gene-expressing plasmids using lipid nanoparticles. The resultant product is then administered intravenously, where it is then taken up by tumor cells that express tumor suppressor proteins that are deficient in the tumor. The company’s lead product candidate, REQORSA (quaratusugene ozeplasmid), is being evaluated in three clinical trials as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”) and small cell lung cancer (“SCLC”). Both NSCLC clinical programs received a fast track designation from the Food and Drug Administration. Genprex’s diabetes gene therapy approach is comprised of a novel infusion process that uses an endoscope and an adeno-associated virus (“AAV”) vector to deliver Pdx1 (“Pdx1”) and MafA (“MafA”) genes to the pancreas. In models of type a diabetes, GPX-002 transforms alpha cells in the pancreas into functional beta-like cells, which can produce insulin but are distinct enough from beta cells to evade the body’s immune system. In a similar approach, GPX-003 for type w diabetes, where autoimmunity is not at play, is believed to rejuvenate and replenish exhausted beta cells.
