  1. WILMETTE, Ill., Aug. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Monopar Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:MNPR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on developing proprietary therapeutics designed to extend life or improve the quality of life for cancer patients, today announced clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to proceed under its IND with an open-label Phase 1b dose-escalation trial evaluating camsirubicin plus growth factor support (pegfilgrastim) in patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma (ASTS). The Company anticipates dosing the first patient in the trial in the fourth quarter of this year.

    WILMETTE, Ill., Aug. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Monopar Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:MNPR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on developing proprietary therapeutics designed to extend life or improve the quality of life for cancer patients, today announced clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to proceed under its IND with an open-label Phase 1b dose-escalation trial evaluating camsirubicin plus growth factor support (pegfilgrastim) in patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma (ASTS). The Company anticipates dosing the first patient in the trial in the fourth quarter of this year.

    "By giving concomitant growth factor support to overcome the dose-limiting toxicity of this class of drug, we hypothesize camsirubicin could be dosed even higher and longer than doxorubicin, yielding the chance to demonstrate efficacy superiority over doxorubicin," said Octavio Costa, MD, Monopar's Chief Medical Officer.

    "We eagerly await reaching each higher dose level in this trial," said Andrew Mazar, PhD, Monopar's Chief Scientific Officer. "Camsirubicin is a novel analog of doxorubicin, and doxorubicin is known to work through a dose-dependent mechanism, where higher quantities yield more anti-cancer effect."

    "If successful in ASTS, there are 13 other potential cancer indications for camsirubicin where doxorubicin is already FDA-approved," said Chandler Robinson, MD, Monopar's Chief Executive Officer.

    WILMETTE, Ill., June 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Monopar Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:MNPR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on developing proprietary therapeutics designed to extend life or improve the quality of life for cancer patients, today announced that it will present its oropharyngeal cancer (OPC) patient population analysis of the Phase 2 Validive® (clonidine HCl MBT) trial for the prevention of chemoradiotherapy-induced severe oral mucositis in head and neck cancer at the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer and International Society of Oral Oncology (MASCC/ISOO) 2021 annual meeting. This analysis provided the rationale for the design of Monopar's Phase 2b/3 VOICE trial, which is open and accruing oropharyngeal cancer patients in the US.

    "We are excited to share the data from our analysis at this pre-eminent multidisciplinary conference dedicated to supportive care in cancer and for the opportunity to continue working towards providing a treatment for this debilitating condition," said Andrew Mazar, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of Monopar.

    Session Title: Mucositis - New Dimensions in Research and Clinical Practice, Oral Proffered Paper 2

    Presentation Title: Subgroup Analysis of Head and Neck Cancer Patients Treated with Clonidine Mucobuccal Tablet in a Randomized, Double-Blind Phase 2 Trial (Study BA2009-28-01) Supports Further Clinical Development in Patients with Oropharyngeal Cancer

    Author: Andrew Mazar, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of Monopar Therapeutics

    Date and Time: The Company's presentation will be available on demand for registered attendees starting Friday, June 25, 2021 at 8:00am EDT. For information on registration, visit: https://www.mascc.org/2021-registration

    About Validive®

    Validive (clonidine mucobuccal tablet; clonidine MBT) is a novel mucobuccal tablet (MBT) formulation. The mucobuccal tablet provides for prolonged and enhanced local delivery of clonidine to the regions of oral mucosal radiation damage in OPC patients. The tablet is self-administered once daily in the patient's home setting with the patient placing it under the upper lip where it adheres to the gums and dissolves over several hours, continuously releasing clonidine into the saliva. Clonidine agonizes the alpha-2 adrenergic receptor on macrophages (white blood cells present in the immune tissues of the oropharynx), decreasing the macrophages' expression of the destructive cytokines that are released in response to radiotherapy. A completed double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2 clinical trial of Validive showed reduced incidence compared to placebo (absolute decrease of 26%, relative decrease of 40%) in OPC patients treated with Validive 100 µg, a safety profile similar to placebo, and a high rate of treatment compliance (over 90%).

    WILMETTE, Ill., June 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Monopar Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:MNPR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on developing proprietary therapeutics designed to extend life or improve the quality of life for cancer patients, today announced it has entered into a collaboration agreement with the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI Singapore) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) to evaluate the activity of MNPR-202 and related analogs in multiple types of cancer. MNPR-202 was designed to retain the same potentially non-cardiotoxic backbone as camsirubicin but is modified at other positions which may enable it to work in certain cancers that are resistant to camsirubicin and doxorubicin. Monopar recently announced a composition of matter U.S. patent (US10,450,340) covering MNPR-202 and related analogs. While we expect camsirubicin to enter a dose escalation run-in clinical trial in advanced soft tissue sarcoma in the second half of this year, CSI Singapore will explore how the immune system recognizes cancer cells treated with MNPR-202 and related analogs in order to guide the rational design of immunotherapy-chemotherapy combinations for the treatment of cancer.

    CSI Singapore is one of Asia's premier cancer research centers and NUS is consistently ranked as one of the world's top universities. Anand Jeyasekharan, MBBS MRCP (UK) PhD, of CSI Singapore, NUS is an expert in the molecular and biological responses of cancer cells to chemotherapy. Through this collaboration, we hope to gain fundamental insight into how MNPR-202 and related analogs alter the DNA of cancer cells and how the immune system then identifies and eliminates these cells, resulting in immunogenic cell death (ICD). The relationship between chemotherapy and ICD constitutes a prominent pathway for immune system activation against various cancers, including cancers that are considered to be "cold" and poorly responsive to checkpoint inhibition alone. A deeper understanding of ICD response may reveal additional indications where MNPR-202 and related analogs could have significant potential as anticancer therapies.

    "By expanding our understanding of MNPR-202 activity against chemotherapy-resistant tumors and working with Dr. Jeyasekharan to assess immunogenic potential, we may be able to inform and refine our development strategy toward indications where MNPR-202 could be most impactful," said Andrew Mazar, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of Monopar.

    "We believe MNPR-202 has the potential to disrupt the current chemotherapy landscape and impact a broad range of cancers," said Dr. Anand Jeyasekharan, who will be the Principal Investigator at CSI Singapore. "We are pleased to collaborate with Monopar to further our current research and hope to aid in the advancement of MNPR-202 toward the clinic."

    "We are very excited to work with Cancer Institute of Singapore at the National University of Singapore and Dr. Jeyasekharan on MNPR-202," said Chandler Robinson, MD, CEO of Monopar. "A world-class reputation paired with deep expertise on the relationship between chemotherapy and immune cell activation make Dr. Jeyasekharan and CSI Singapore a great research partner."
