Strand Therapeutics Announces Poster Presentation on STX-001 at the 2023 AACR Annual Meeting
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#AACR2023--Strand Therapeutics, the programmable mRNA company developing curative therapies for cancer and other diseases, today announced the details of its poster presentation at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2023, being held from April 14 - 19, 2023 in Orlando, Florida.
Strand will present preclinical data from its lead programmable mRNA candidate STX-001, a multi-modal synthetic self-replicating mRNA technology that delivers a prolonged and locally-acting IL-12 cytokine to the tumor microenvironment. STX-001, when delivered directly to the tumor, induces a highly immunogenic tumor cell death while the mRNA-encoded IL-12 payload promotes recruitment of effector T cells and NK cells into the tumor microenvironment.
Details of the presentation are as follows:
Presentation Title: STX-001, a locally administered LNP-formulated self-replicating mRNA that encodes the therapeutic payload IL-12, induces deep systemic immune responses to solid tumors
Session Category: Experimental and Molecular Therapeutics
Session Title: Gene and Vector-based Therapy
Session Date and Time: Monday Apr 17, 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM ET
Location: Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida, Poster Section 16
Poster Board Number: 2
Permanent Abstract Number: 2731
The full text of the abstract will be published to the AACR Online Program Planner at 4:30 PM ET on Tuesday, March 14. The abstract will also be published in an online-only supplement to the AACR journal Cancer Research on Friday, March 31. Additional meeting information is available on the AACR website.
