Kraków, Poland, March 13, 2017 / B3C newswire / -- Selvita (WSE:SLV), a clinical stage drug discovery and development company focused on innovative medicines for oncology patients, will publish the most recent data from its oncology programs at the upcoming AACR Annual Meeting 2017, which will place on April 1-5 2017, in Washington, DC, USA.
Data presented at the conference will include recent results from Selvita’s most advanced oncology program, a dual PIM/FLT3 inhibitor SEL24, currently in Phase I/II clinical trial, as well from Company’s preclinical and early discovery programs.
“We are delighted to be able to present at the upcoming AACR Annual Meeting such a broad selection of our project results. We will not only be reporting on our clinical program - SEL24, but also on some of our most promising preclinical and discovery programs e.g. in CDK8 inhibition, immunometabolism and epigenetics - said Krzysztof Brzozka, Chief Scientific Officer at Selvita. We are fighting for a better future of many oncology patients and we believe that with every day we are getting closer to our goal.”
