Quintessence Biosciences Presents Human Ribonuclease Variant, QBI-139, at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Meeting

Madison, WI | Posted on June 7th, 2010

QBI-139 is a protein therapeutic that targets the RNA in cancer cells. The data from abstract TPS162 will be presented at 8 AM on Monday June 7, 2010. The focus will be on the design of the Phase I clinical trial of QBI-139. QBI-139 has shown broad single agent activity against a variety of cancer models addressing significant unmet need, such as non-small cell lung and pancreatic cancers.
