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.

Putin lauds China infrastructure initiative, warming ties

Apr 26, 2019

BEIJING — Russian President Vladimir Putin praised China's Belt and Road infrastructure initiative Friday, underscoring warming ties between the neighboring powers. Putin's comments Friday to a forum in Beijing appeared to downplay the potential for tensions between China and Russia. They also reflect Beijing and Moscow's shared resistance to U.S. global influence. The Belt and Road is rapidly expanding China's economic footprint in Central Asia, Moscow's traditional sphere of influence. But in an interview published Thursday remarking on 70 years of diplomatic relations, Putin praised Russia-China ties. "It would be no exaggeration to say that our countries have approached this...

Baltimore mayor urged to resign after federal raids

Apr 26, 2019

BALTIMORE — Supporters of Baltimore's embattled mayor have grown largely quiet as a chorus of resignation calls has dramatically swelled following raids of her government offices, her two city homes and other locations by teams of federal investigators carting out boxes of evidence. The strongest voice calling for Mayor Catherine Pugh's immediate resignation is Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, who didn't mince words after the early Thursday raids: "Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead." Many Democrats, including those on Baltimore's demoralized City Council and state lawmakers, demanded that the first-term mayor put the...

RBS first-quarter earnings down 12.5% amid Brexit worries

Apr 26, 2019

LONDON — Royal Bank of Scotland says first-quarter earnings fell 12.5% as economic uncertainty linked to Brexit curtailed lending. Net income dropped to 707 million pounds ($912 million) from 808 million pounds in the same period last year as businesses delayed borrowing decisions. Britain's government owns 62.4% of RBS following a taxpayer-funded bailout during the global financial crisis. RBS warned Friday that uncertainty over Britain's pending departure from the European Union "is likely to make income growth more challenging in the near term." CEO Ross McEwan says the bank will "continue to support our customers through this Brexit uncertainty while...

Daimler says it has no idea how Kim Jong Un got his limos

Apr 26, 2019

TOKYO — German automaker Daimler, which makes armored limousines used by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, says it has no idea where he got them and has no business dealings with the North. Kim has raised eyebrows by using Daimler-branded stretch limousines at several very high-profile summits, including his meeting this week with Russian President Vladimir Putin and both of his earlier summits with President Donald Trump. The sale of luxury goods, including limousines, is banned under U. N. sanctions intended to put pressure on North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons. Kim nevertheless had two limos waiting for...

Apr 26, 2019

Japan's Nikkei 225 index slipped 0.2% to 22,258.73 and the Kospi in South Korea declined 0.5% to 2,179.31.
