PCI Biotech - release of the RNA Therapeutics Virtual Conference presentation

PCI Biotech - release of the RNA Therapeutics Virtual Conference presentation

Oslo (Norway), 10 February 2021 – PCI Biotech (OSE: PCIB), a clinical-stage biopharma company developing innovative therapeutics that address significant unmet medical needs in cancer today released the fimaNAc focused presentation for the 12th Annual RNA Therapeutics Virtual Conference, a UK based online event taking place February 10-11, 2021. The 2021 conference is set to explore the latest developments in RNA delivery agents and RNA-based therapeutics with the latest case studies on advanced mRNA technologies, oligonucleotide delivery, therapeutic applications and future trends and innovations. PCI Biotech is also a sponsor of the event.

Today, Wednesday February 10 2021, at 13:10pm (CET) Dr. Anders Høgset, CSO, will present an overview of PCI Biotech’s proprietary platform technology, focusing on the delivery of RNA molecules, including the most recent data on the use of the fimaNAc delivery technology in the exciting field of RNA based therapies.

Per Walday, CEO of PCI Biotech, comments: Encouraging collaborative preclinical results have recently been achieved with the fimaNAc technology and we are very pleased to be able to share these data now. The rapid development progress of mRNA-based vaccines against Covid-19 has generated much attention to the potential of nucleic acid therapeutics generally, and mRNA particularly. The results with fimaNAc suggests that this technology provides an appealing intracellular delivery solution for certain applications within this class of therapeutics.

An online recording of the full presentation held by Dr Høgset will be made available on PCI Biotech’s website (www.pcibiotech.com) under “Scientific publications & presentations” after the event.

About PCI Biotech         
PCI Biotech is a biopharmaceutical late stage clinical development company focusing on development and commercialisation of novel therapies for the treatment of cancer through its innovative photochemical internalisation (PCI) technology platform.  PCI is applied to three distinct anticancer paradigms: fimaChem (enhancement of chemotherapeutics for localised treatment of cancer), fimaVacc (T-cell induction technology for therapeutic vaccination), and fimaNAc (nucleic acid therapeutics delivery).

Photochemical internalisation induces triggered endosomal release that is used to unlock the true potential of a wide array of therapeutic modalities. The company’s lead programme fimaChem consists of a pivotal study in bile duct cancer, an orphan indication with a high unmet need and without approved products. fimaVacc applies a unique mode of action to enhance the essential cytotoxic effect of therapeutic cancer vaccines, which works in synergy with several other state-of-the-art vaccination technologies. fimaNAc utilises the endosomal release to provide intracellular delivery of nucleic acids, such as mRNA and RNAi therapeutics, thereby addressing one of the major bottlenecks facing this emerging and promising field.
