  • Stream: Short RNA Based Therapeutics
  • Title: A First-in-Class Therapy Against Metastatic Cancer: From Pre-Clinical Testing to Early Clinical Trials
  • Date and Time: March 14th 2:10 p.m. local time

Dr. Medarova’s presentation will describe work completed in support of the TransCode’s ongoing Phase 0 microdose clinical study with its lead therapeutic candidate, TTX-MC138. TTX-MC138 is designed to be delivered to metastatic tumor cells where it is intended to inhibit miR-10b, generally regarded as a master regulator of metastatic disease. In preclinical studies, TTX-MC138 elicited complete responses and life-long disease remission in animal models of adenocarcinoma.

Nonclinical studies to be presented include dosimetry, pharmacokinetics (PK), tissue distribution, and metabolite analysis. In addition, preliminary clinical results including pharmacokinetics and accumulation of the drug candidate in clinical metastases, as well as drug candidate stability, will be discussed. The presentation will also describe key activities completed in support of TransCode’s planned Phase 1/2 trial for which it plans to file an IND in March 2024.

“We are honored to join key stakeholders in the field of RNA to exchange ideas, share compelling data, and ultimately help further this potentially important technology,“ said Medarova. Dr. Medarova continued, “We believe that TTX-MC138 has the potential to help cancer patients as a first-in-class RNA-based treatment for metastatic disease. We are eager to share our progress with the broader scientific community.”
