Moleculin announces strategic collaboration to develop immune stimulation drug
Moleculin Biotech announced that it has entered into an agreement to collaborate with the University of Bergen to expand research on inhibition of brain metastasis by Moleculin's pre-clinical drug WP1066 and its unique ability to increase immune system response to cancer and suppression of tumor cell proliferation and survival. The company previously announced that Moleculin is working with MD Anderson in their effort to move forward with a physician sponsored IND application to study WP1066 in patients with glioblastoma and melanoma that has metastasized to the brain. That IND has been on hold pending responses to requests from the FDA. If the FDA allows the IND to proceed based on the responses provided, Moleculin anticipates this clinical trial could be ready to begin by the end of this year.
