Take the Opportunity of Background Discussions in Chicago, Illinois

Regensburg, Germany, May 19, 2011 / B3C newswire / - The German company Antisense Pharma is dedicated to the development of antisense-technology based anticancer drugs. Recently an international pivotal Phase III trial with its compound trabedersen has started in the US – and is enrolling brain tumor patients. The initiation of a Phase II/III study to confirm the encouraging safety and efficacy results in advanced pancreatic cancer patients begins in 2012.

Learn more about the remarkable mode of action of trabedersen and the important role of its target protein Transforming Growth Factor Beta 2 (TGF-β2) in several aggressive cancer diseases.

Get a better understanding of the TGF-β2 related research of Antisense Pharma – and answers to pertinent questions like

  • What is the position of trabedersen among the upcoming immunotherapeutic treatment approaches in oncology?
  • What is the current knowledge about trabedersen in advanced pancreatic cancer?
  • Targeting TGF-β with other medications has been associated with severe side effects. How is the safety of trabedersen?
  • What is the just patented application system of Antisense Pharma which enables outpatient intracerebral administration of trabedersen?

Do you have other questions concerning our company, ongoing or planned clinical trials, current preclinical and clinical data? Would you like to speak to one of the investigators who are already familiar with trabedersen? It’ll be a pleasure to arrange an exclusive interview at ASCO 2011, Chicago, 3rd – 6th June.
