Sirnaomics to Present Latest Developments in Polypeptide Nanoparticle Platform at the 4th Annual RNAi-Based Therapeutics Summit


HONG KONG and GERMANTOWN, Md. and SUZHOU BIOBAY, China, March 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirnaomics, Inc. (the "Company", Stock Code: 2257.HK, and together with its subsidiaries, the "Group" or "Sirnaomics"), a leading biopharmaceutical company in the discovery and development of advanced RNAi therapeutics, announced today that Dr. Patrick Lu, Chairman of the Board, Executive Director, President and Chief Executive Officer and Dr. Richard W. Welch, Vice President of  Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls processes (CMC), will deliver keynote speeches during the 4th Annual RNAi-Based Therapeutic Summit. The conference, which will take place in Boston, MA, from March 21–23, 2023, aims to bring together prominent drug developers and academics, leading ultimately to the successfully delivery of siRNA into extrahepatic tissues.

Dr. Lu will present the Company's proprietary Polypeptide Nanoparticle (PNP) technology for RNAi Cancer Therapeutics, with demonstration of dual-targeted drug design using either a local formulation or a systemic formulation for treatment of various types of cancers, such as non-melanoma skin cancers, cholangiocancinoma, pancreatic cancer and metastasized melanoma. The positive clinical readouts from multiple Phase II studies regarding treatments of Squamous Cell Carcinoma in situ and Basal Cell Carcinoma of STP705 allow the company moving forward into the late stage clinical development. Taking advantages of the targeting property of the PNP with siRNA drug payload, specifically against activated endothelium cells, the company has conducted a Phase I basket study for STP707 for treatment of multiple solid cancers. The initial dose escalation study has shown excellent safety profile with obvious therapeutic benefit to the patients.
