NetworkNewsBreaks – Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ: GNPX) at Forefront to Advance Innovative Developments in Fight Against Lung Cancers

Clinical-stage gene-therapy company Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX) is at the forefront to advance innovative developments in the war against lung cancers, testing its trademarked Oncoprex immunogene therapy. A recent article discussing this reads, “Oncoprex’s phase I and II clinical-stage trial therapies are designed to administer cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities (http://nnw.fm/aJtE9). The company has a portfolio of 30 issued patents and two more pending, and it is also conducting preclinical research to help identify which patients will be most likely to benefit from its gene therapies and which additional cancer drugs will be the most synergistic with Oncoprex.”

About Genprex Inc.

Genprex Inc. is a clinical-stage, gene-therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients, based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex(TM) immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. Oncoprex has a multimodal mechanism of action whereby it interrupts cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.Genprex.com.

Jul 16, 2019

WASHINGTON — Unfazed by widespread criticism, President Donald Trump on Monday intensified his incendiary comments about four Democratic congresswomen of color, urging them to get out if they don't like things going on in America.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York said Trump "does not know how to defend his policies and so what he does is attack us personally." Trump said...
