LEXINGTON, Mass., Dec. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Curis, Inc. (Nasdaq:CRIS), an oncology-focused company developing novel, targeted drug candidates for the treatment of human cancers, today announced preliminary first-in-human results from its ongoing Phase 1 trial of CUDC-907. These data will be presented today at the 55th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) in New Orleans, LA.
