“The upcoming Annual AACR Meeting 2015 is an important event for us. We’ve just initiated IND-enabling studies for the SEL24 program, a selective inhibitor of PIM and FLT3 kinases, with potential application in the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma and other neoplastic disorders. This was a major step both for the program and the Company, and we’re very excited to be getting closer to the point where we can offer patients a potentially breakthrough treatment" - said Dr. Krzysztof Brzózka, Chief Scientific Officer and Executive VP, at Selvita.
