• Philadelphia, PA (May 28, 2020) – Oncoceutics, Inc. announced that it and its collaborators will present several abstracts at the virtual 2020 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) from Friday, May 29th to Tuesday, June 2nd that highlight the clinical safety and efficacy of ONC201 across a number of clinical trials, age groups and tumor types, including H3 K27M-mutant diffuse midline glioma. Additionally, a dedicated abstract will present the rationale and design of the first-in-human clinical trial for ONC206, the company’s second molecule of its portfolio of imipridones to enter clinical development.

    “The data presented at ASCO 2020 highlights the potential of ONC201 to address the substantial need for patients with H3 K27M-mutant glioma,” said Lee Schalop, MD, Chief Executive Officer of Oncoceutics. “We are committed to build on this promising data and to help ensure that brain cancer patients benefit from the development of ONC201 and other new therapeutic options.”

    “We are encouraged by the clinical efficacy of ONC201 in a molecular subset of high-grade gliomas that has continued to be robust as the results grow and mature,” added Joshua Allen, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of Oncoceutics. “We are further looking forward to the first clinical trial with ONC206 that offers new ways to address additional forms of cancers that lack effective treatments.”

    A team of Oncoceutics team members will be available for questions around the conference. If you have any questions, please contact us at info@oncoceutics.com.
