ROCKVILLE, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rexahn Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE MKT: RNN), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing best-in-class therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, today announced it has received a notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a new delivery technology titled, “Polymeric Systems for the Delivery of Anticancer Drugs”. The patent covers CPMA, a new polymer drug delivery platform technology developed by Rexahn.
“We are pleased to further expand our platform of proprietary drug delivery technologies in preclinical development. CPMA complements our nano-polymer-drug delivery platform, nano-polymer-drug conjugate system (NPDCS), which has already shown promising results in preclinical studies,” stated Rexahn’s CEO, Peter D. Suzdak, Ph.D. “Our drug delivery platforms address a well-recognized need in cancer treatment for drugs that selectively target and kill cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells unharmed. Although numerous widely used FDA-approved anti-cancer drugs offer benefits to patients, in most cases, the efficacy of these drugs can be significantly improved, and their toxic side-effects minimized, if they can be combined with a targeted drug delivery technology to bring the drug directly into cancer cells.”
